    Question Dr. Mercola Cocoa Cassava Bars?

    Primal Fuel
    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 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.
