Protein bars get a bad rap. They’re often condemned the food of the lazy, time deprived, fitness junkies and/or talentless chefs. But, especially at times like these, there’s no denying that stocking up on compact nutrition is a sensible choice. Thank the fitness gods that Amazon makes it so convenient.
Here are five that we recommend:
