what are some of your favorite bars? i want to know because it's hard to have oats at work, I'm always eating on the go and bars are one thing I can always bring with me because they are non-perishable. any other suggestions of things I can eat. i mostly want things that are handy. I'm trying to gain 20 lbs.

Bars are whack. Eat some rice cakes, beef jerky, fruit.

rice cakes are very high glycemic I need very low glycemic like oats. beef jerky and fruit are staples of my on the go diet already. I'd like a tasty bar recipe with little sugar if anyone has one.

Okay. If you're into that high and low GI thing. sigh.

There are lots of threads on protein bar recipes. Just search.

none are really good but nature valley probably tastes the best not too much crap in them and come in a variety of flavors

try some nuts, fruit wont go bad that quickly, throw a bunch of stuff in a bag and take out what you want

I like the Apple Crisp and Dark Chocolate 'N Oats Nature Valley Bars.
