5 Plant Based Protein Options

We’ve done a few trips to the grocery store. All for snacks (lol). This time I wanted to do something a little different.

I’ve been, mostly, vegetarian for about 3 years now. I don’t talk about it a ton, mostly because, I don’t want to come across as one way of eating is the better (or the only) way of eating.

Eating healthy, and eating for your goals can come in a ton of different forms. Being more plant based just happens to be mine.

With all that said… I wanted to share 5 plant based options that are high(ish) in protein.

Check the list out. Let me know if you’ve had any of these. And let me know what should be on the list for a part 2…

1. Tofu – 9g Protein

2. Lightlife Tempeh – 12g Protein

3. Beyond Meat Burger – 20g Protein

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

4. Almonds – 8g Protein

5. Banza Pasta – 23g Protein

6. *BONUS* Quorn Meatless Ground – 15g Protein

5 Healthy(ish) Snacks From Target Under 500 Calories Part 2

The first 2 posts like this one (Target pt 1 & Aldi’s ) was well received, so I decided to take another trip to target and find five more healthy(ish) snacks under 500 calories.

The goal is to (1) find easy snacks under 500 calories per serving, and (2) make sure they are healthy (ish). That part is my own judgement call 😉

1. Quest Hero Chocolate Peanuts Butter Bar: 200 Calories

2. Justin’s Cinnamon Almond Butter: 200 Calories per pack

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

3. Kind Probiotics Bar: 230 Calories for 2 bars

4. Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Almonds: 160 Calories per serving

5. Core Power Protein Shake: 170 Calories per bottle

How’d I do for part 2??

Where shall I go next? Back to Aldi’s? Walmart? Wegmans? CVS???

Let me know!!! And make sure to share this with your fellow Target lovers!

BugOut Bar Cricket Protein Bar Review


A little while ago, I got a DM on Instagram from BugOutBar, asking if I wanted to try out their product.

Full Video Review

A quick check of the page, and, sure. Why not?

And about a week or so later, I get a box of 12 protein bars.

My wife then asked the question, “are these made from bugs???”

Me: “No…. no… ummmm….”

And, YES! They are made from Cricket Protein. I guess I should have done more research into the bars lol!!

But, since they were here, I tried them.

Before the review, a quick breakdown of the calories and macros:

270 Calories

16g Fat

23g Carbs

15g Protein

Review

Passed the smell test. Chocolate brownie is exactly what it smells like.

Taste test: It was actually good. While it had the, expected, slight chalky-ness of a protein bar, it still had the flavor of a chocolate brownie (and not a cricket!).

Overall, I give it a 9/10 for protein bars. Especially with it being all natural!

Leave a comment on the video, and let them know about what you thought!

**Update**

The BugOutBar people loved the video!
