I tried several different protein bars (protein is good, it sticks with you longer) including Clif, Zone, and Special K. The Clif ones are okay, but I think they give me more than I actually need and they feel like they are meant for someone who is incredibly active. The Zone ones were also okay--but I would buy them in bulk at Costco and I got really sick of the two flavors. I also looked at the ingredient list and was kind of horrified by all of the additives. The Special K bars are good, but I would be hungry pretty quickly after.

In come Luna bars. There are a ton of different flavors (16 or 17)--my favorites are Lemon and Blueberry Bliss. They are the perfect size and maybe this is just a marketing gimmick--but they are nutritionally balanced just for women. They are also 70% organic and are not made with any genetically modified ingredients. Awesome! A package of 6 is on sale this week at Target for $5. I recommend that you pick some up.
