Paleo Protein Bars – repost – detailed nutrition info

As an update to an early recipe for paleo breakfast bars that I modified into more protein-centric / meal replacement bars, I thought people might be interested in more detailed nutrition information around these bars.

Quick tip: Use My Fitness Pal as an easy way to calculate calories instead of trying to do it by hand.  What’s useful:  log into the site outside of the app and your can download detailed reports about other nutrients if you’re intereted.

There’s 7 grams of fiber per bar and you could add 3.5 grams of fat if you choose to grease the pan with coconut oil instead of with cooking spray.  Another option is to add a cup of apple sauce to sub out 2 bananas to bring the sugar down a little.

If you find some errors in this, do let me know.  Overall, a decent option if you’re ok with some extra carbs in your diet.

We are busy. We are overbooked. We are traveling. We are unmotivated. We are tired. We are agitated. We are unproductive. We are overweight. We are unhappy. We are why. I'm a pharmacist, I travel regionally for work and have been all of these things. What elevates me from these emotional ditches? Good health. My nearly 100 year-old Italian grandmother "Nana" said a long time ago: "If you don't have your health, you don't have nothing." Considering she still rakes leaves and gives me hell for, well, just about everything, I think she's pretty damn sharp and fit. On the other end of the spectrum: My dad died at 65 from a heart attack. He was a diabetic, a previous smoker, a recovered drug addict, a food addict, hypertensive, arthritic, immobile nearing amputation and, simply, wasn't living. For all intensive purposes, I'm fit and healthy. Armed with degrees in biology and pharmacy (read: loans) and these two family stories, you'd think staying on track is easy. Newsflash: it's not. Traveling / Working / Fathering / Mothering / fill-in-the-blanking are obstacles we all have to overcome. So, how do we do it? Suitcase Fitness was born from the hope that by sharing my small health and fitness victories while traveling, others may be inspired to find new ways to stay engaged with their health. My vision is that others will use this venue to share their "baggage" and small steps taken to overcome health challenges. I get by with a little help from my friends. - The Beetles The things that last, never happen overnight. - Slaves
