Want to eat more protein to ensure that you get a healthy, balanced diet or to achieve your athletic goals? Our vegan protein bars without added sugar are a great and super easy way to achieve precisely this. Here are a few ideas on how best to integrate RAWBITE protein bars in your everyday life.
It’s all about timing: when is the best time to eat protein?
Besides carbohydrates and dietary fibre, proteins are crucial for many vital processes in your body. They help build and maintain muscles and transport oxygen. This means that they should be a cornerstone in a balanced, healthy diet – and particularly so if you’re into sports. You can read more about what benefits proteins have here.
As a general rule, a protein bar is best eaten as a snack after a strenuous workout or for an energy boost during a long workout. Eating a protein bar within 30 minutes of exercising can help your body repair the muscles and promote recovery. If you get hungry while exercising, you can also snack on half a bar every 40 minutes or so to maintain energy levels.
Alternatively, you can simply enjoy the bars as a snack between meals. This way you’ll feel full and satisfied for a long time and can focus on your goals without your mind drifting off to thoughts of chocolate or sweets. One or two protein bars a day are well within the recommended intake. But remember: the more protein-rich fruit and nut bars you eat, the more calories you’re getting – something to bear in mind if you want to stick to a balanced diet.
How can I meet my daily protein needs?
