Yesterday, I discussed the importance of breakfast. I told you to choose wisely when selecting your a.m. nourishment, especially when on the run. I even went so far as to recommend breakfast bars as speedy, yet tasty meals. In the interest of furthering that suggestion, I and a few other LuckyVitaminers put Atkins Morning Start Bars Cranberry Almond and Oatmeal Raisin to the test. Here’s what we found:
Cranberry Almond – At the first bite, your mouth is flooded with almonds, so much so that you wonder if there could be room for any fruit in the intensely nutty flavor. Then, a tangy after-note appears: the cranberry. It is strong yet subtle, providing the perfect balance.
• Pros – Chunks of fruit and obvious bits of nuts allow you to be confident about what you’re eating. There’s no question that this is a cranberry almond bar.
Oatmeal Raisin – The initial taste has you reexamining the package. What exactly are you eating? It’s a flavorful shock of sweetness you didn’t quite expect. The raisins add a delightfully chewy texture and the icing leaves you wondering if that miniscule sugar amount could be true.
• Pros – It’s a sweet way to get some much-needed fiber and protein without an overload of calories and sugar. You won’t know you’re being healthy.
