Low FODMAP Protein Bars by Be Nice – Be Bloat Free


Low FODMAP Protein Bar Be Nice
Be Nice Low FODMAP protein bars are my new digestion friendly alternative to Quest bars, because the company recently started using a new formula that contains high FODMAP corn fiber.

From FitBits adorning the wrists of most of my friends to affordable, $25 standing desks on the market, people are factoring movement into their daily lives, just like they do lunch.

Since we’re all destined for a lifetime of intentional movement to stay healthy, it’s important to keep things fresh by incorporating new ways to sneak in extra calorie burn.  When Chobani asked us to crunch the numbers in honor of the launch of their Simply 100 Crunch Greek yogurt, I thought it would be a great opportunity to share how I plan add some “flavor” to my daily movement with fun little challenges.
