5. Whey Protein

Whey Protein

I’m pretty big on avoiding highly processed dairy protein, like whey protein, but for most people, it is easy to digest ,and in a pinch, it can be a good way to ward off hunger, if you choose the right bar to buy it in.

Many brands contain GMO ingredients, which I avoid, but some brands are actually pretty decent. Two of the best brands containing no artificial sweeteners or GMO ingredients that use whey protein include The Simply Bar and Quest bars in some varieties. Though I don’t buy this protein for myself to make my own bars with, it can be a useful ingredient in certain bars and with minimal choices. Just stick to blends without added sugars and artificial sweeteners.
