"Don't push me, Mom."
On these days, I've found myself having what the husband affectionately refers to as my "low blood sugar moments" wherein I become alternately evil, panicked, shaky and/or filled with rage. Not pretty. So, despite my preference for salads or smoothies or other more whole foods solutions while on-the-go, I've finally gotten hip to having a bar in my purse for these emergencies. I love Kashi's granola bars (I really have yet to find a Kashi product I don't adore), but at about 120 calories, with 2 grams of fat and 5 grams of protein, they're hardly enough to count as a meal replacement, and they certainly don't stave off the crazies. When I am desperate enough to count on a bar for nourishment, I want that sucker to really do the job, and I think I've finally found my go-to Bag Bar: Think Thin bars.
My local grocer sells these for $1.17, so you're looking at 67 cents for a meal in your bag, people... that's pretty hard to beat. Try them and let me know what you think!
