PROBAR Meal Review and Giveaway



I have always been skeptical of meal replacement bars.  The idea is tempting -- Eat on the go!  All the nutrition you need in a square! -- but the reality never seems to live up to it.  More often than not, they're just sugary bars that are far too small, never fill me up, and leave me hungry halfway through the morning.

The only -- and I mean the ONLY -- exception is PROBAR Meal.  PROBAR sent me a box of PROBAR Meal bars to try, and I've been having one for breakfast almost every morning.  Amazingly, I have never been tempted to eat anything till noon.  Yup.  No morning snack, no mid-morning cravings, nothing but a PROBAR Meal and glasses of water.  This truly is a meal replacement bar!


About PROBAR Meal
We mean it when we call it a meal. This PROBAR weighs in at a solid three ounces of fruits, nuts and seeds with enough nutrition to make a fresh, tasty, satisfying meal replacement. It's rich in raw ingredients and the right nutrient-dense calories for lasting energy and nourishment.

PROBAR Meal comes in twelve flavors:
Chocolate Coconut
Double Chocolate
Koka Moka
Mint Chocolate
Oatmeal Raisin
Original Blend
Peanut Butter
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
Superberry & Greens
Superfood Slam
Superfruit Slam
Wholeberry Blast

So far, I've tried .  I've loved every flavor I've tried, but my favorite is Peanut Butter -- another surprise!  I'm usually meh on peanut butter (unless it's accompanied by chocolate), expecially with energy bars, but the PROBAR Peanut Butter Meal bar has a wonderfully nutty, fresh, sweet taste!

I'm really impressed by how they can pack so much into a single bar.  You can actually see real food in PROBAR Meal: nuts, dried fruit, seeds and grains.  Each flavor looks different (i.e. the Oatmeal Raisin has lots of oats, the Mint Chocolate is darker, the Wholeberry Blast has lots of fruit, etc...) so you know it's not some artificial substance with different flavorings.



Breakfast has always been a difficult meal for me.  My stomach doesn't seem to wake up till 10AM, but I know that having a good breakfast in the morning really sets up my metabolism and my energy levels.  With the PROBAR Meal, I can take a few nibbles before 8AM, then finish the bar between 8:30 and 9:00AM.  I get a nutritious, filling meal for less than 400 calories and never have to feel faint with hunger.   What a great way to start the day!
