May is Celiac Awareness month! A few gluten free product reviews…


Recently I had the chance to try Nugo Stronger protein bars. These bars are certified gluten free and range from 25 to 27 grams of protein sourced from whey and rice. There are no artificial sweeteners, no maltitol and they are non-GMO. This equals 55% less sugar than a regular high protein bar! The average calories for each bar is 290.

Seriously, I had just blasted some serious fat and calories with a killer train Dirty Fitness 60 minute Bootcamp session and was in need of so e serious nourishment so I grabbed the cookies and cream Nugo bar! Having celiac my options for most things are limited but I have to tell you, that bar tasted just like I remember an Oreo! It was so good and filled me up quickly so I felt more level with my blood sugars.

The peanut cluster flavor was remarkable and reminded me of a snickers candy bar. So much that I almost felt guilty eating it. I would highly suggest the next time you want a protein packed gluten free endulgence to pick yourself up a few boxes of these bars to have on hand! I’m out and just writing about them has made me really want one. My overall rating of these bars is a 10 out of 10! Finding anything healthy that’s gluten free and packed with good protein is hard to find. Add finding one that actually tastes great and it’s close to impossible….until now!!
