22 Days 20g Protein Bar Reviews

I decided to just put all these reviews together so you all can compare them more easily! I tried all the flavours available in the 20g. First off, they’re all really similar to Larabars, but are a little drier and denser due to the pea protein.

PB & Chocolate Chip Nirvana - 4/5, has chocolate chips, doesn’t really taste peanuty, not too sweet, satisfying.
Walnut Fudge Brownie - 3.5/5 good, has big pieces of walnut, rich, a little dry.
Quinoa Chocolate Chip Crisp - 2/5 boring, weird crunch, tastes just like pea protein, plain.
Almond Butter Chocolate Chip - 4/5, similar to PB Nirvana, can’t really taste almond, has chocolate chips.
Coconut Chocolate Chip - 4.5/5, has chocolate chips, bits of coconut, but not too much, I could actually taste coconut and it wasn’t dry.

The #breakfast of a lazy, extremely sick #fitchick 😷 Egg white omelette with low fat mozzarella and some #protein #oats (#glutenfree oats, @cellucor cinnamon swirl protein, walden farms pancake syrup, and a tbsp of peanut butter) with a carton of orange juice on the side 👍 Normally I don’t eat such big/macro dense meals but I know I won’t be leaving my bed much today so I gotta get some food in me while I can 💀 The #macros for this meal (including the OJ) are 685 calories, 62 protein, 77 carb, and 14 fat 😁 Now off to take some more meds and hope this goes away soon 😩 Have a great #4thofjuly #fitfam ❤️💥🎉 #foodporn #iifym #flexibledieting #gains #igfit #instafit #inspiration #motivation #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #backontrack #bodybuilding #lifestyle #sick #eatclean #cleaneating #celiac #cellucor #nutrition #recovery #rest

NO-BAKE PROTEIN BARS

1 cup Quick Oats
3 level scoop Whey Protein Powder, Vanilla Flavor
½ cup Soy Milk

Directions
1. Use parchment paper to line a baking dish.

2. Add the oats to a blender and blend until it forms a flour.

3. Next, in a large mixing bowl, combine together the oats with the protein powder and begin to add the milk slowly. You are looking for a very thick batter consistency. You may need to add a bit more milk to make sure it’s not too thick.

4. Transfer the batter to the lined baking dish. Press it down firmly into the dish.

5. Keep it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes - it should harden.

6. Cut into 6 bars.

“The idea of “complete protein” is now recognized to be completely obsolete and incorrect.

Our bodies combine the 21 amino acids to make the millions of different proteins we use, and they store, use, and recycle these amino acids in endless combinations.

Eating a lot of protein, especially animal protein, is inflammatory and toxic.

It is now over 30 years since Frances Moore Lappe publicly apologized for popularizing the false idea of “protein combining” in her Diet for a Small Planet book.

Just eating a varied plant-based diet, one will get protein that is far superior to animal-based protein, which is toxic because it has higher levels of the sulfur-based amino acids methionine and cysteine, which are now understood to be inflammatory as well as acid-producing, leading to cancer, Alzheimer, arthritis, and other diseases.

Recent studies show that animal proteins cause chronic inflammation of the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels, causing heart and circulatory disease.

Casein, the main protein in cows’ milk, is not digestible by humans, who don’t have the enzyme rennin as calves to, leading to autoimmune diseases and many other problems, and called by Dr. T. Colin Campbell “the most potent carcinogen to which humans are routinely exposed.”

Vegans eat by far the highest quality protein if they eat whole-foods and organic, and vegetables are, per calorie, the highest protein foods; it is per calorie, not per gram, that is the accurate measure of macro-nutrients.”

Hey, I'm a new vegan and I've been eating freezer foods eg. Fake chicken tenders, tempah, tofu, etc to get my protein and things like that but my mum said its not healthy to eat a lot of frozen, packaged foods because they're all processed but you can't get fake meats fresh can you? I really need help because she's getting mad at me :/ what do you usually eat?

Hi !

I don’t know if you enjoy the taste/texture of fake meats or you’re just eating them for protein. It is true that they are processed and soy can be controversial so I wouldn’t eat tofu twice a day for example. I think that I saw in some supermarkets fresh fake meats, they were packaged in slices, sausages, etc…

I’ve actually never liked the taste/texture of meat so I never eat fake meats. I prefer quinoa/lentil/vegetable steaks for my veggie burger. I don’t think I’ve ever really tried fake meat because they don’t appeal to me but if you like it, eat it !

It’s you’re looking for vegan sources of protein, tons are plant-based
