I have a confession. I have an “addiction” to Zone Perfect Nutrition Bars.
Zone Perfect Nutrition Bars are great tasting, good for you, and obviously slightly addictive..
I don’t remember the flavor of my first Zone Perfect bar (I think it might have been cinnamon roll) but I know I wasn’t impressed. Fast forward a few months and now I love the Strawberry Yogurt, the Chocolate Mint, and the Chocolate Peanut Butter.
Why do I eat Zone Perfect Bars? I’m sure some of you are wondering how the idea this post came about, I have end stage kidney failure and am on peritoneal dialysis.
For PD to work you need to keep your Albumin (protein in the blood) up, for my dialysis clinic is has to be over 4.0 to be considered in range. I had trouble keeping my Albumin up so the dialysis dietitian suggested Zone Perfect Bars.
She gave me a box of Fudge Graham and Strawberry Yogurt plus a few Chocolate Mint. There began my “addiction”..
Strawberry Yogurt tastes like strawberry, Fudge Graham as a slight cinnamony taste to me, and Chocolate Mint tastes like a cross between a Thin Mint and a York Peppermint patty.
This brings me to yesterday Friday the 16th, I had to stop into Shopko and finally remembered to look for said Nutrition Bars and found not only Strawberry Yogurt, but also Cookies & Cream Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk, and Dark Chocolate Almond.
Once I’ve tried those other flavors, I’ll have to do another post about them. Though that won’t be for at least a few weeks.
For anyone wondering the do in fact help me keep my Albumin up, my last two monthly labs showed my Albumin in January to be 4.1 and this month’s was 4.0. If you’re on PD for sure and your dietitian approves give them a chance.
You should be able to find Zone Perfect Bars at your local Walmart, Target, Shopko, Walgreens, CVS or pretty much any other Grocery Store. You can also get them on Amazon.
