With my commute plus my active lifestyle as a runner and general consumer who cares about their health, I am always looking for fuel that is clean, non-processed, and real. I am always seeking out for something specific for after my workout when I want to eat all the things but don’t want to negate my hard work. I am not a juice or shake kind of gal and I always want something with more substance to it. Usually I reach for a bar and I have tried lots of different bars that are out their on the market – from Lara Bars to Think Thin to Gnu to Clif. But I always feel like I am missing something from them – they’re too processed or teeny tiny and done after two bites and not at all satisfying.
AMRAP (“As Many Rounds As Possible”) creates food that is 100% gluten free, GMO-free, unprocessed, and 100% Paleo. That food – their bars – are generally recommended as a meal supplement or replacement and as a pre or post-workout snack, are a researched based combination of good proteins and carbs.
I was given the chance to try out AMRAP’s new bar-line which came in delectable flavors such as Almond Honey, Cashew Vanilla, and Fig and Cacao.
- The Almond Honey Bar contains sea salt, cinnamon, and raw honey that work together to provide essential micro minerals to rebalance electrolytes, limit rises in blood sugar, and maintain glycogen levels that improve athletic recovery time.
- The Cashew Vanilla Bar has egg whites that are packed with protein to increase muscle mass while cashews and coconut work together to help to maximize energy, aid in muscle synthesis, and provide you with macronutrients.
- The Fig and Cacao bar promotes cardiovascular health and has high fiber content, and is rich in phyto-nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins. Dates and cocao also work together to remove free radicals and reduce inflammation.
I tried two of the bars post-workout and one prior. I found that the bars really helped me feel satiated and energized throughout my workouts and after. I wasn’t hungry, hungry, hungry after finishing my workout and eating the bars. I wasn’t at the fridge trying to figure out what I could eat that was a) nutritionally dense and b) would negate all my work.
Of all 3 flavors, the Almond and Honey was my favorite. Like I could eat it all day, every day and not complain. I was sad when I finished it. But the other 2 flavors, Vanilla Cashew and Fig and Cacao were pretty tasty too!
Here are the nutritional figures for each AMRAP bar:
I won’t lie, at first I was a little sticker shocked as I count calories but you know what they say – all calories are not equal. Your body metabolizes calories differently – 50 calories from candy is different from 50 calories of almonds or vegetables. And you’re not getting junk with AMRAP.
