Avoid Cereal and Energy Bars

889Cereal and energy bars may seem like a convenient way to eat on the go, but they are actually toxic for your body. In addition to being high in sugar, they contain many artificial colors and dyes. Also, with most bars containing little to no protein, they aren’t a balanced snack.*

Cereal bars undergo a process called extrusion, which uses high heat and high pressure to form and shape the grains. Extrusion destroys what little nutrients the grains have left; yet another reason to avoid these bars altogether.
