Homemade Protein Bars (recipe)

If you’re like me, you love protein bars.

I could easily eat two or three per day!

But, a lot of commercial protein bars are loaded with sugar, and they can be pretty pricey.

That’s why I wanted to share this homemade protein bars recipe with you!

It’s one of my favorites, and it’s a perfect grab-and-go snack for after your workout or any time. These bars have all the good stuff and none of the bad. Plus, they cost less than 50 cents per bar to make!

Give them a try and let me know what you think:

Since the end of 2006, when I started working full time in the fitness industry, I have had conversations with clients most every working day who are looking to lose fat.

I can’t tell you how many times people are pretty dialed in with their kettlebell workouts, but they are just not getting the fat loss results, and they can’t figure out why.

Nine times out of ten, it comes down to nutrition. This is the missing puzzle piece from most people’s kettlebell fitness program.

And here’s the thing – the short-term diets DO work to get you quick results.

But you always have to remember – however you GET to your goals, that’s how you have to MAINTAIN them.

That’s why it’s so important to find an approach that is going to be manageable with your lifestyle, and do-able for you for the long term.

Learning how to make a few healthy, tasty recipes that are going to work for you and your family goes a LONG way towards that.

That’s why I love Anabolic Cooking.

It’s a nutrition program that’s based around meals that you’re going to actually like to eat.
