Hi friends! I hope you all had an awesome weekend! Mine was full of relaxation (besides working yesterday) which was VERY welcome after an extremely busy week. I was able to catch up on some much-needed blog/fitness work that had been on the back burner for a week or so. Also, Rob and I were able to get in a killer class at Everybody Fights (ahem, Chris's Trainfit 360), make pancakes, organize life, and dive head first into some noodle bowls at Blue Dragon (so, SO, GOOD). What's better than a great workout, delicious food, organization, and relaxation? Not much, right?
Anywayyy, life is hectic, right? We all try to make healthy food choices but, sometimes we can't plan everything. Although I didn't used to be a fan of protein/health "bars"... sometimes they are my best bet to get some energy in the afternoon. Plus, there are many more clean options out there than ever before (Rx Bars, Kind Bars, etc). These bars have a simple ingredient list so you can rest assured that you're eating real food not some processed crap.
Well, I have another bar to add to the list today... New Grounds Food Coffee Bars! The ingredient list in these bad boys is really clean... I'm talking 100% ORGANIC real foods that you already know and love! Organic dates, gluten-free oats, organic almond butter, organic brown rice syrup, organic vegan dark chocolate chips, organic fair-trade COFFEE, organic cashews, organic chia seeds, organic agave fiber, organic cinnamon, and sea salt.
Yes, each bar is 100% organic, vegan, gluten-free, and gluten free. Plus, the coffee in it provides the energy of one cup of coffee. OH HI my new mid-afternoon, favorite snack!
So, besides the fact that these bars are delicious, clean, and act as a cup of coffee... there's one more thing that I love about them and that's how they came of existence. Ready for this? Two Northeastern students were in their dorm one day and thought "I wish we could eat our coffee, let's make that happen and let's make the ingredient list killer, too". (I mean it might not have gone exactly that way, but, close enough!)
So, Ali & Johnny got to work and made their dream a reality. Don't you love when that happens?
And so, here I am today telling you about these awesome bars that were made by these two amazing guys from Northeastern. It's pretty neat.
