Gatorade Whey Protein Bar

  • Rating:4 This bar is very filling, however, compared to other protein bars these are very high in calories for the amount of protein provided. I also find the taste to be eh because the chocolate flavors do not taste like normal chocolate.Pure Protein bar.
  • Rating 6 This bar again is pretty filling, and this bar also has a huge concentration of protein compared to the calories. There are around 20g of protein for each bar of all flavors and the calories are usually around 180-200. The taste is overall pretty good, but sometimes the flavor can seem a little rich especially the chocolate ones. There is not very much crunch which could be good or bad depending on what you like.Think Thin bars Rating 8 These bars are definitely one of my favorites. The variety of flavors vary in amount of protein, but several flavors pack 20g of protein in a bar that is around 200 calories. All the flavors are very tasty and are both soft and crunchy. The only downfall of this bar is that it is slightly smaller than most, so it is a little bit less filling.Clif Bar Rating 5Clif bars are classic and most people seem to like their taste. Clif bars have small amounts of lots of vitamins and other good things. However, if protein is what you are looking for, Clif bars are not the best choice. Clif bars usually have protein but typically only about 6-8g. If protein isn’t a huge concern though, these are a great filling choice with tons of flavor options.Zone Bar Rating 4
  • This rating comes purely from nutrition- not taste. The bar is a normal size and for most flavors around 200 calories. The bar is a bit lower in protein than some of the other listed bars- only about 15g of protein. That protein is still a huge amount and great for athletes. The problem is that these bars have 15g or more of sugar compared to the other bars which have only a few grams of sugar. Of course, if this bar tastes better to you than others it is still nutritionally beneficial.

    For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

    Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

    I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

    Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

    Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

    Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

    This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
