Dairy-free Energy bars- what we can and can not eat
Looking for an energy supplement or quick appetite fix without lactose? Clif Bars, natural energy bars, do not contain dairy products and are available at many grocery and health food stores, including Whole Foods Market.
Clif Bar also makes dairy-free Luna nutrition bars for women. Both Clif and Luna bars are available in many flavors. My favorite is the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Clif Bar! Yum!
Unfortunately, many other “diet” or energy bars do contain lactose. Powerbar, maker of the most available energy bar, does not have a lactose-free version. (Hint: Hey Powerbar, maybe you should think about us? We’re great consumers with a lot of purchasing power!)
One disclaimer, you really should eat these before a workout, not just randomly, since they not only give you a lot of energy, but also are a source of extra calories you may not otherwise burn off. Yep, found that one out the hard way after eating one before a 2 hour plane trip–I just couldn’t sit still! Same goes for feeding them to your kids!
