Happy Thursday everyone! It's going to be a great one, because I have some tasty news coming at you today. Through my affiliation with SweatPink/FitApproach, I was afforded the opportunity to try out some new protein bars made by a company called AMRAP Nutrition.
AMRAP is a company founded by several athletes, nutrition experts and Paleo lifestyle enthusiasts. They have developed nutrition bars that are clean, 100% Paleo and free from GMO's, Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Preservatives and Artificial Sweeteners. All good things right? But how did they TASTE?!
I was sent one of each of their three flavors to sample, including: Almond Honey, Cashew Vanilla and Fig Cacao
So far, I have tried the Cashew Vanilla and the Almond Honey. INCREDIBLE! The Cashew Vanilla was by far my favorite. It contains coconut and I love coconut flavored anything. As far as nutrition goes, being dairy free is KEY for me. As you know, it's often difficult for me to find protein bars, snacks and powders that are made without dairy ingredients. I also like that these bars contain only a few ingredients and are all natural.
For example, the Cashew Vanilla bar has only 7 ingredients! (Cashews, Honey, Cashew Butter, Unsweetened Coconut, Egg White Protein, Vanilla Extract and Sea Salt) There is literally no crap and nothing artificial or unnecessary in here. When compared with some other protein bars I usually eat, like LUNA or Odwalla, they often have 20 or more!
If you can't see all of the nutrition details in my pic above and you'd like a full nutritional breakdown of each bar, you can check out that information on AMRAP's website here.
The bars are around 300 calories each and contain anywhere from 12-15 grams of protein. While most of the bars I usually consume are closer to the 200 calorie range, I don't mind a more energy-dense bar, especially because it kept my hunger at bay at work for hours!
Right now, I believe you can only purchase the bars online through the company's website, or through gyms that decide to carry the bars. However you are in luck, because AMRAP is allowing me to give one lucky reader a 12 bar pack ($48 value)!
All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter below. Winner will be selected next Thursday. GOOD LUCK!
