There is a huge variety of protein bars and powder on the market and it can be overwhelming to select just the right one. It’s important to remember that not every bar and powder is created equal. The process of finding the right brand is much easier when you seek out simple, natural ingredients with a pure and high quality protein base. I recently discovered Naked Nutrition which hits on all of these qualities and is an excellent choice for grass fed whey protein powder/bars. The brand name Naked means no fillers or artificial additives, just premium ingredients.
Naked Nutrition’s protein is sourced from grass fed cows milk from small family owned dairy farms in California. The 100% grass fed cow’s milk is growth hormone free (no rBGH or rBST) and non-GMO and the manufacturing process is kept simple. The result is pure non denatured whey loaded with essential amino acids, glutathione, and clean protein.
Naked Nutrition offers a variety of flavors of protein bars that are all created with just 7 real food ingredients. With an almond butter base the texture is a perfect soft and chewy deliciousness.The Mint Chocolate flavor is amazing if you’re a chocolate lover! It has a rich chocolatey taste with a hint of mint that elevates the cocoa flavor. The Blueberry Almond flavor is equally delicious. It has real blueberries studded throughout the bar and a fruity flavor from added dried blueberry powder. Both bars have 15 gram of protein and 7 grams of fiber. They are the perfect size for on the go snacking or for chopping up to add on top of yogurt, smoothies, or whatever you please! Some more things that I love about these bars are:
- Almond Butter is produced in the U.S. for optimal freshness and quality
- GMO free
- Soy and Gluten Free
- No hidden sugar alcohols OR artificial sweeteners
These protein bars are the perfect pairing to your favorite smoothie. I love to chop up the Mint Chocolate Bar and add it on top of my go-to chocolate smoothie. This is a super easy and satisfying high protein snack!
