It can be when I am in a rush, on my way to somewhere, as a snack or a pre/post workout treat. My favorite portien bars are NugoBars becuase they are vegan, are low fat, low carb and has good ingredients. So I would usually by them weekly or each two weeks, until I decided to make some homemades protein bars because I will save like $8 weekly! Sometimes protein bars can het expensive without you noticing.
