Other health bars to consider include:
- The GNC Quest Protein Bar (www.gnc.co.za) which has quite a sweet taste which may not appeal to everyone.
- Raw Revolution Bars (www.rawrevolutionsa.co.za) are clean and tasty.
- The Ziberto Bar (www.zibertobar.co.za) is a nutty and fruity snack, clean and simple.
- The USN Protein Delite Bar (www.usn.co.za) mentioned in the winning protein category above, although not listed in the category box, is well worth considering due to its high protein content.
As you will now be aware, there is a worthwhile range of healthy bars on the South African market ready to help you support your blood sugar levels, provide energy for training and competition, and to recover in optimal time. One thing that you might also have noticed is that some are not actually South African so a business opportunity awaits for a foody entrepreneur! Each bar has its own strengths and weaknesses. Used appropriately in conjunction with appropriate timing and recovery strategies, these bars along with healthy drink options, fresh smoothies and home-made meals can substantially support the returns that you get from your training and reduce the losses experienced from stressful lifestyle patterns. So, choose your poison and stock up on your favourite bars or even have a go at making your own.
