Since the end of last year I have started exercising regularly and eating better. Lately when I am on the go I sometimes get hungry and I usually end up eating not so great snacks. JJ Virgin the creator of the famous book The Virgin Diet now has a much healthier and satisfying snack bar on the market to curb those eating cravings.
These bars are non-GMO and contain 7.2-8.1 mg of iron in each bar. In her books she says not to snack for fat loss but there comes a time you are just hungry in between meals and your body wants a snack and that is where these bars come in.
These bars come in a super convenient form. Easy to toss in your purse or keep in a drawer at work for when a glass of water just won’t do. The best part is that they really do taste good. They are a bit crumbly but that is because they don’t put a coating on the bars since that usually means using fractionated oils, soy or dairy. Stick them in fridge first to reduce crumbliness but I did not mind the crumbs myself.
They have a shelf life of only 3 months but that is because The Virgin Diet Bar is made with fresh ingredients and no fractionated oils or preservatives that typically lengthen the life span of food.
I actually used one of mine as a mini meal and it left me completely satisfied until dinner. Another time I had one as a snack and it was exactly what my body needed. These diet bars are the perfect snack to keep around when you absolutely need a snack. You don’t even need to be on a diet to enjoy them because everyone should have quick and easy healthy snacks around.
