I was given a care package of Enjoy Life Protein bites and I am loving each flavor of these little chocolate morsels. As you may already know, I am a big fan of the Enjoy Life Foods Brand. They create and produce food that is free of common allergens that anyone can eat. You will not find gluten (wheat), dairy, peanuts, soy, egg, tree nuts, among other food allergens in any of their products. You can have peace of mind with this brand because they only use quality ingredients and their products are REAL FOOD. If you are following a gluten-free diet or vegan diet this brand has a ton of great products available to you.
They come in a variety of four flavors:
So many good things to say!
All four flavors get the seal of approval from me. I really enjoyed the taste of the fruity ones the most: Dipped Banana and Dark Raspberry. They sure packed in quite a bit of flavor in each little bite! I was amazed by how flavorful each and every one of these is.
Each serving of Protein Bites is three pieces. They are small in size (about an inch in diameter) but they are the perfect snacking size. Three Protein Bites has 160 calories, 17g of carbohydrates, 11g of sugar, and 6g of protein. The protein is vegan plant-based protein so there is no strange chalky aftertaste with these like you get from other protein products. You can check the amount of protein that you are suggested to intake daily with a calculator right HERE.
Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. SOURCE
The Protein Bites are also naturally flavored which is a huge plus! On the back of the Dipped Banana bag, you can see that the banana flavor comes from dried bananas.
Enjoy Life Foods also uses only NON-GMO ingredients in their products. Did you know that approximately 80% of packaged food products contain GMOs? That is a huge number. For me it is reassuring to purchase and consume a product that is non-GMO.
I enjoy snacking on my Protein Bites throughout the day. When I get a snack attack 1 or 2 pieces is enough to satisfy my hunger craving. These Protein Bites are filling considering their small size.
I think the only gripe I have about these is the amount of sugar in them. Three small Protein Bites has 11 grams of sugar. I would feel a lot better about snacking on these if they had a lower sugar content. I try to keep my sugar intake low so I will not go beyond eating three of these. These are made with semi-sweet chocolate and I am thinking that going to a darker chocolate could lower the amount of sugar in these.
There is a fun recipe on their website that uses ground up Protein Bites and a banana. Check out this recipe to see what you can do beyond just snacking on them. I would definitely enjoy using them in the way that they did there. Very inspiring recipe!
