Oat Bars That Make You Feel Great
The best time to start taking care of yourself is now. A great way of doing that is by eating food that helps your body operate at its best and also leaves you feeling like you’ve splurged and treated yourself to something special. Oat bars are one of the best ways to indulge yourself and pamper your body as much as you do your mind.
That’s why we can be thankful for the hard-working team at Over Easy, who put together an oat bar that is packed with healthy ingredients that taste good. In fact, they have four uniquely different flavors to match up with any flavor profile that strikes your mood, or for even the pickiest eaters.
- Apple Cinnamon
- Vanilla Matcha
- Peanut Butter
- Banana Nut
Each variety has only the best quality ingredients, with no artificial flavors, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, dairy, soy, wheat, or gluten! That means not only do they taste good, but you’ll also feel good with a burst of natural energy and healthy ingredients that nourish the body.
Here’s The Science
It's not just the fact that eating food that tastes good causes your brain to release dopamine, a neurotransmitter that sparks your brain with positive feelings. When you intersperse the time between your large meals with a smart and healthy snack it can help keep your blood glucose from spiking. When one’s blood sugar drops when we’re between meals it causes a large impact on your mood and ability to think—what we call being ‘hangry’.
Research into food and how our bodies use what we put in it during different times has lead us to discover that those of us who eat a health-conscious breakfast are more productive in the first portion of the day, which lessens the load on what you’ll have to deal with later. In addition this improves problem-solving skills and makes sure your brain is operating at peak potential.
The oats are high in fiber and iron, which let you feel full and satisfied throughout the day. Coupled with the egg whites which are high in protein, you’ll have the energy to boldly face your problems without letting an empty stomach stand in your way.
It’s What's On The Inside That Counts
Over the years as big-name brands have monopolized the market, a lot of these brands have cut corners. What that left us with were rows and rows of bars packed full of refined sugars, preservatives, artificial ingredients like synthetic flavoring and texture modifiers. Even the primary ingredients are often not friendly for those of us who are striving for clean eating as many name brand bars feature dairy, gluten, and soy.
On the other hand, Over Easy bars have been cooked up to use clean and health-conscious ingredients, proudly sporting organic oats and ingredients so simple that anyone can identify them. It’s an old fashioned quality that has been sorely lacking from our marketplaces when it comes to available premade goods.
Each bar contains ingredients such as certified organic oats, egg whites, almonds, and honey, with variations between the different varieties. Another great thing to remember—there are no artificial or so-called ‘natural’ flavors added in. Everything that you taste comes directly from the ingredients themselves.
How Else Can A Simple Oat Bar Make You Feel Good?
Beyond the scientific fact that helping you squeeze a meal into your busy schedule helps you keep your blood sugar in balance, it can also save you precious time to get the most out of your morning. Whether you use that extra half hour to work on your hair and makeup, work through some exercise or yoga poses, or just want to hit that snooze button a few times, having that control of extra time in the morning lets you choose how to frame the start of your day.
You also won’t need to feel like you’re missing out when you hear the sweet call of goodies from the vending machine calling your name, or when a coworker walks by with a treat from the break room. Keeping your favorite flavor in your bag—or a box in your desk—can allow you to keep having a delicious snack on your own terms.
