Garden of Life Organic Fit High Protein Weight Loss Bar (Chocolate Covered Cherry)

I’ve tried Garden of Life High Protein Weight Loss Bar before. At one point, I was addicted to them, haha. This time, I have Chocolate Covered Cherry. It’s a new flavor to me. This is what I think about it.

My Review:

These are the blandest protein bars out there. They don’t taste like what it’s called Chocolate Covered Cherry. Just a hint of that flavor. It’s barely there. They are soft in texture. Somewhat similar to a brownie, which I like. Even though they are bland, I really do like these. They make a satisfying treat that’s low in sugar. There’s only 1 gram of sugar (0 grams of added sugar) per bar. That’s why these protein bars are tasteless. Each bar contains 200 calories with 14 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber.

Do I recommend these? Once again, they are satisfying. I do enjoy having them early in the morning with my breakfast or alone. Since they contain Green Coffee Bean Extract, it wakes me up quickly. But, I realize that I am very sensitive to caffeine. I get really hyper when I consume caffeine, lol. That’s why I don’t drink coffee with caffeine as much anymore. I choose decaf whenever possible. These protein bars (to me) are very addicting due to the caffeine in it, so I only purchase them once after a couple of months for a nice low sugar, high protein snack. Yes, I would recommend them if you can handle a snack that’s bland.

Ingredients:

Organic soluble tapioca fiber‚ organic vegetable glycerin‚ organic pea protein‚ organic almonds‚ organic chocolate coating (organic cacao nibs‚ organic erythritol‚ organic tapioca fiber‚ organic cocoa butter‚ natural licorice flavor‚ organic stevia extract (leaf)‚ organic sunflower lecithin‚ organic vanilla bean extract)‚ organic pea crisps (organic pea protein‚ organic starch)‚ organic sprouted brown rice protein‚ organic cacao‚ organic acacia fiber‚ organic tart cherry‚ organic carob‚ organic flavor‚ organic svetol® green coffee bean extract‚ organic ashwagandha‚ sea salt‚ organic cinnamon.

Raw Rev Glo (Mixed Nuts, Caramel & Sea Salt)

Remember Raw Rev Glo Protein Bars? One of my favorite flavors is Mixed Nuts, Caramel, & Sea Salt. This is what I think about them now.

My Review:

I still feel the same way as I did before in my last review. It’s healthy and tasty at the same time. It’s filling too. This protein bar makes it feel like I’m eating a candy bar. I would definitely purchase these again soon. 🙂

Ingredients:

Raw Rev Nutty Superfood Blend (raw cashews, peanuts, raw almonds, pea protein, organic brown rice protein, raw organic hemp protein, raw organic virgin coconut oil, raw organic chia seeds, raw organic sprouted flax seeds) isomalto-oligosaccharides (prebiotic fiber from tapioca), organic Italian dark chocolate chips (cane sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), pea protein crisps, natural flavors, organic brown rice syrup, sea salt.

Have you tried any of these protein bars? Did you like them? 🙂

Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Vanilla

I have a new protein powder supplement! After I finished Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Unsweetened, I picked up Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Vanilla. I said I was! Now, here I am with the Vanilla! Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Vanilla is vegan, gluten-free, and organic. Let’s take a look at the nutrition facts and ingredients. Just to see if there are any similarities and differences between the Unsweetened and Vanilla. 🙂

Nutrition Facts & Ingredients: Besides Organic Pea Protein Isolate as the only ingredient. The Vanilla also contains Organic Coconut Palm Sugar and Organic Vanilla with Other Natural Flavor. The Vanilla has 5 grams of added sugars, while the Unsweetened has none. There’s a slight increase in Calcium, Iron, and Sodium too but not by much. Instead of 100 calories, the Vanilla provides 30 more calories — a total of 130 calories. Protein is the same in both, which is 20 grams per serving.

I’ve had much success with Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Unsweetened. I thought I would venture out to the Vanilla flavor just for the sake of trying it out at least once. If I don’t like it, I can always go back to the Unsweetened. No biggie. I must say, I’m very ecstatic about the Vanilla flavor. I hope it works out for me, but we will have to see. I’ll make an update when I begin to use it. Have you used Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Vanilla before? How about the Unsweetened? Which one did you like more?
