Nowadays snack bars are marketed as a convenient, healthy way to eat in between meals. Often advertised as ‘less than 100 calories’ or ‘virtually fat free’ consumers are understandably misled into believing that these grab-and-go options are a good way to get nutrients and combat hunger. The sad truth is that most of these bars are packed with refined sugars and zero nutritional value, leaving you feeling unsatisfied and flailing once the sugar rush has worn off.
I’m unaware of any ‘food’ bars (I’m informed Nom does not want to be lumped in with the other products named ‘snack’ bars) which offer the unique clean-eating benefits that this one does. Lets take a look:
- Free from refined sugars and dairy
- Low GI index, organic, high in antioxidants
- Contains coconut oil, oats, oat bran and agave nectar
Together this is a pretty awesome combination. The use of agave nectar instead of refined sugars paired with slow releasing oats means a genuine energy boost which lasts without the dreaded sugar crash (come on guys, we’ve all gone a little sugar crazaay) but not only this, these bars taste AMAZING. I mean, you would actually choose to eat this over a cereal bar or even a chocolate bar. I’m being 100% honest here, I was seriously gutted when I finished my one and only bar. Good news is Nom is coming to the UK!
