  • Dr. Mercola Cocoa Cassava Bars?

    I stumbled across these bars and my yoga instructor gave me one free.....it was pretty good. I try not to eat much out of a package but the ingredient list caught my attention. I'm still a bit new at this PB thing so any help you guys can provide to guide me if I'm off base thinking these are OK as an occasional on-the-go snack:


    Amazon.com: Dr Mercola Organic Cocoa Cassava 1 Energy Bar Chocolate & Coconut 1.59 oz bar: Health & Personal Care

    Ingredients

    tapioca syrup, raw almond butter, dark chocolate, unsweetened coconut, tapioca dextrose, raw cacao powder, cassava flour, chia seeds, sunflower lechtin, coconut flavor.....every ingredient listed as organic.

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure all syrups are on the avoid list...

        I think the consensus around here is to avoid eating on the go when possible and avoid overly processed food until you get your main diet straight (2-3 meals a day no snacking). Personally, there are worse things out there than these bars but I wouldn't rely on them for any sort of nutrition or as a replacement for one of your main meals.
