My New Favorite Meal Replacement Bars!

I recently found out that I am allergic to dairy and soy. As a personal trainer (and new mom) I am always on the go and looking for a fast and nutritious meal. Unfortunately, most meal replacement bars are soy or dairy based. I was so happy to find NuGO FREE. They make meal replacement bars that are gluten free, soy free and dairy free! Check out their website:

NuGo FREE’s bars are full of crisp rice protein and healthy ingredients to create a delicious snack. Any individuals with celiac disease, sensitivities to wheat, diary, soy, or anyone looking for a delicious nourishing snack can now be FREE TO SNACK. NuGO FREE is 100% natural and vegan OU Pareve plus layered with luscious, REAL dark chocolate or touched with icing. There are 3 flavors: dark chocolate, dark chocolate trail mix and carrot cake.

My favorite is the dark chocolate trail mix. Here are the ingredients: Rice Protein Crisp (Rice Protein Concentrate and Rice Flour), Crisp Rice (Rice Flour), Semi Sweet Dark Chocolate (Sugar, Unsweetened Chocolate, Cocoa Butter), Crystalline Fructose, Almonds, Tapioca Syrup, Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Agave Syrup, Chicory Root Fiber, Cranberries (Sugar), Rice Protein, Pumpkin Seeds, Flaxseed, Water, Organic Acacia Gum, Flaxseed Oil, Natural Flavors, Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate), Salt.

I have been using a Gluten free meal replacement from Top Form Nutrition, personally i like the chocolate flavor the best, but the vanilla is good also !
