Healthy Treat and Snack Alert: Enjoy Life Foods ProBurst Bites
As a busy twenty-something Nutritionist, daily exerciser (hello spinning and barre), and diehard chocolate lover who focuses on eating real ingredients as much as possible, I often find it challenging to find a quick snack or sweet treat that fits all my needs. Yes, that reads: I’m picky.
Of course, I’m all about getting into the kitchen and creating something fiber-, protein-, carbohydrate-, and healthy fat-rich, but I’m also all about grab-and-go options too.
Unlike other (gross) unhealthy snacking treats, ProBurst Bites from Enjoy Life Foods are filled with whole food ingredients, such as pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and more. They’re free from common food allergens (gluten, dairy, peanut, soy, wheat, eggs, casein, potato, and more) and certified gluten-free, non-GMO, and certified Kosher and Halal.
My favorite part about these bites is that just one serving (three of them) contains 6-7 grams of plant-based protein, which is about as much as a whole egg! This whopping amount of protein is thanks to heart healthy seeds and rice protein, which is a great alternative for those who avoid animal-based protein powders like whey, and are gluten-free. Because ProBurst Bites are so protein rich, they’ve quickly become my new favorite post-workout bite. Bonus – they’re super portable and so easy to throw in your gym or work bag. Note: all your workout buddies will want to try them too – plan accordingly.
The other best part about these treats? ProBurst Bites are chocolate-based and taste like a sinful chocolate truffle, if a sinful truffle was made of whole foods and bursting with plant protein, fiber, and healthy fats. The inside of each little cute ball has a creamy chocolate center that (literally) melts in your mouth, and doesn’t have a weird chalky taste or texture like other protein products. Win.
The ProBurst Bites flavors are delicious, btw.
- Chocolate Cinnamon Spice, which tastes like a warm cinnamon chocolate treat. Each bite is the perfect amount of sweet and spicy.
- Chocolate Sunseed Butter. This flavor is my favorite, as the little balls taste like a creamy, rich truffle.
- Chocolate Cranberry Orange, which tastes like autumn and happiness.
- Chocolate Mango Habanero. This flavor is bold! With real habanero pepper in the ingredients, these bites have a kick of heat and sweet, and will be gobbled up instantly.
