It’s been a long time coming. Usually snacks that are nutritious aren’t so delicious, and healthy meals aren’t so portable. Introducing DNX Bars — a snack that beats all the odds and defies snack bar stereotypes.
Are These the Healthiest Bars on the Planet?
What is a DNX Bar?
DNX Bars – standing for Daily Nutrition – are 100% clean, nutrient-rich bars made with wholesome and organic ingredients, without sacrificing taste. They are the brain-child of John Rooney, a guy who made the conscious decision to change his unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle and embark on a fitness and wellness journey.
For those who want to live better and eat better:
Unfortunately for John (and for many of us), there just weren’t enough portable snack options to make his life changes easier. We’re surrounded by a never-ending supply of non-nutritious options everywhere we go— it seems like the only way to avoid temptation is to always eat at home. But what happens when life gets busy? What can we do to avoid snacking on the donuts in the office break room, or grabbing junky snacks from the gym snack machine when we just need something to take the edge off of our hunger?
The best option for busy lives:
Here’s some great news: being busy doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your health. Instead of grabbing a box of sugar-filled “nutrition” bars at the supermarket, keep a box of DNX bars on hand so that you’ll never be tempted to “cheat”. DNX Bars are Whole 30-approved, 100% Paleo, keto- friendly, and gluten free. They are also low in carbs and sugar, high in protein, and low in sodium. They are basically the healthiest portable snack bar you’ll find on the planet!
What’s in a DNX Bar?
Pure, honest nutrition, that’s what! The only ingredients in our bars are ones you can read and pronounce. That’s right— NO GMOs, NO preservatives, NO artificial ingredients, NO fillers— EVER. DNX Bars are made from grass fed beef and bison, or free range, hormone-free chicken. But these aren’t your average jerky bars— we’ve added organic fruits and veggies for optimum taste and nutritional value. Our culinary artisans bring the best out of delicious ingredients like almond butter, dried tart cherries, sweet potato and spices to make DNX bars a true pleasure to eat.
Why grass-fed beef?
Grass-Fed Beef is much lower in fat than the meat of grain fed animals and has about the same fat content as skinless chicken. A product bearing the label “Grass-Fed Beef” denotes that no grain finishing, antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products were ever used in the care and raising of the cattle. Grass-fed cattle are allowed to graze and roam freely.
You may be surprised to learn that that grass-fed beef has more Omega-3s than the grain-fed alternative. This is because Omega-3s are formed in the green leaves (specifically the chloroplasts) of plants. Sixty percent of the fat content of grass is a type of Omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic or LNA.
Grass-Fed Beef is also a rich source of another type of good fat called “conjugated linoleic acid” or CLA, and is high in Vitamin E, which lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer. If you are like most Americans, you’ll have deficient levels of this important antioxidant, which fights the effects of aging.
What is grass-fed bison and why should I add it to my diet?
We get that bison isn’t on the typical grocery list. However, this high-protein, low cholesterol meat was a staple of the plains of North America for centuries. The bison in our bars comes from US-raised bison that graze freely and are never kept in feedlots.
As with grass-fed beef, the term “grass-fed bison” denotes that no grain finishing, antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products were ever used in the care and raising of the bison.
Because grass-fed bison is lower in fat and cholesterol than beef, chicken, or salmon, and higher in protein, iron and vitamin B12 than beef, it’s an excellent alternative protein source.
What else is in a DNX Bar?
We don’t skimp on the quality of our ingredients, or the taste. Not only is each fruit, vegetable, or spice used in DNX bars organic, but many are also known as “superfoods” because of their outstanding nutritional and medicinal value. Here’s a run-down of some of the mouth-watering ingredients you’ll find in our gourmet snacks:
- Organic Anise: a medicinal plant used for thousands of years as a remedy for persistent cough, excessive gas, and bad breath.
- Organic Inulin: this pre-biotic can aid digestion, support bone health, boost the immune system, reduce cholesterol and help control blood sugar.
- Organic Moringa Leaf: This powerful plant contains 90 beneficial nutrients. It can increase energy, reduce inflammation, regulate cholesterol, alleviate migraine headaches, help cleanse and detoxify your body, aid digestion, and help to regulate blood sugar.
- Organic Pecan: This delicious nut boasts a creamy, buttery flavor and is rich in antioxidants, B vitamins, and minerals. It also increases “good” cholesterol in the body.
- Organic Black Pepper: A widely used and beloved spice, black pepper contains anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties and improves digestion.
- Organic Cacao Nibs: Did someone say, “chocolate”? This healthy, delicious base ingredient of dark chocolate contains antioxidants, magnesium, fiber, and iron.
- Organic Cayenne Pepper: This ingredient adds a little “kick” to your snack and some nutritious benefits to your diet. It can regulate blood pressure, clean the circulatory system, speed healing of wounds, rebuild damaged tissue, ease congestion, aid digestion, relieve arthritis and rheumatism, and much more.
- Organic Medjool Dates: This delicious, sweet fruit is full of vitamins, minerals, and soluble fiber, which is a great weight-loss aid!
- Organic Dried Tart Cherries: The properties found in these juicy cherries reduce inflammation and boost muscle recovery. They make the perfect post-workout snack!
- Organic Fennel: This plant produces a pleasant, licorice-like flavor. It is anti-inflammatory and has been used traditionally for various digestive problems such as heartburn, intestinal gas, and bloating.
- Organic Goji Berries: These delicious, exotic berries contain antioxidants, C, B2 and A, iron and selenium. They have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to manage diabetes, high blood pressure, fever and age-related eye problems.
- Organic Sacha Inchi: This protein-packed superfood, also known as the Inca Peanut, is higher in Omega 3’s than fish oil. It also contains rich amounts of Vitamin A and calcium, which support healthy eyes, teeth, skin, and bones.
- Organic Grated Coconut: Far from being just a delicious tropical snack for your beach vacation, coconut is composed mostly of good fat –- 90% of which is saturated in the form of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which are associated with many health benefits. As well as being a good source of iron and zinc, coconut also contains phenolic compounds that act as antioxidants.
Are DNX Bars really Paleo-friendly?
The Paleo diet takes its name from the Paleolithic era, during which humans consumed only natural, non-processed foods. Basically, it means getting rid of any refined, processed, preservative-filled foods in your diet and replacing them with only organic, nutrient-rich sustenance. Since DNX bars use grass-fed beef and bison, free-range chicken, and organic fruits and veggies blended together with only very minimal processing, they qualify as paleo-diet friendly.
What about Keto?
The ketogenic diet is, in short, a high-fat, low carb diet. The high good-fat content of grass fed beef and bison in DNX bars makes them a perfect addition to the keto lifestyle. DNX bars also do not use artificial or processed ingredients, both things that a person choosing to follow this diet plan will want to avoid.
DNX Bars are 100% Whole 30 Approved
DNX Bars meet all Whole 30 nutrition requirements, making them the perfect on-the-go snack or meal replacement choice for those who follow the Whole 30 program.
