The reason there are so many low carb bars is that the old ones (which used to contain a ton of carbs, all in the form of simple sugars) weren't any good for you. You can easily still find these bars on the market, but you may as well just grab a Snickers because there isn't much difference.

perhaps a healthy, low GI carb bar? interesting idea. i was struggling with a carb to bring to work but found a can of black beans.

Not even a shake? You can go with 'prolab's carb pro' with 55g of complex carbohydrates (maltodextrin).

Powerbar harvests are whole grain based. Of course, they process them and add stuff, so I'm not sure about the GI, but they've got to be some better than a candy bar.

eat your oatmeal.....

for good traveling low glycemic carbs to add to your high protein bar I use KAVLI wafers = 26 grams carbs and 120 calories. they are cheap and a box costs 2.50 for 10 servings (I usually double the servings and get 5 out of a box)

if I need a high glycemic carb I grab a plain bagel. more carbs but better for post workout.
