Being able to fuel your body while on the move is vital. Whether you are in the military on a mission or a civilian through hiker you need to be able to carry food for your body. You don’t always have time to sit down and setup a camping stove, boil water, and cook your food. Mountain House meals are a great option for that, but we’re talking about remaining mobile while you eat so that your body does not crash.
Over the past several years I’ve tried I don’t know how many meal replacement bars, protein bars, recovery type snacks and the list goes on. I either didn’t like the texture, the taste or my body flat out rejected them. The one product I found myself going back to and now use on a regular basis is CLIF Bar. This is by no means a meal replacement, but is sure as hell is better than nothing. Eating one CLIF Bar is still going to give your body needed nutrients during or after strenuous activities.
In a shooting course I took this summer with Kyle Defoor, CLIF Bars for lunch were common among most of the shooters attending the course. Both days of the course were 90+ degrees and sun. Needless to say by lunch time most of us were spent. Lunch both days was considered a working lunch. We still took a break under the shooting pavilion, but Kyle would lecture during that time, so you didn’t really have time to break out your picnic basket and have a full meal. We were there to train and put rounds downrange, not sit around and eat. The CLIF Bar and a bottle of water was plenty to keep us going through the afternoon.
If you’re looking for a healthy snack to eat on the move, be sure to check out the CLIF Bars. They come in many different flavors and taste really good.
