Many of my clients and athletes have asked me if I eat those energy bars and I do but only certain ones. Lately I have narrowed it down quite a bit. One of my absolute favorites are the Hammer Nutrition bars. My choice of flavor is the Chocolate Chip. The bar is super moist, leaves you feeling satisfied without that lump in your stomach, is easily digestible, has a wonderful not too sweet but sweet enough flavor and is PACKED with nutrients. What more could you ask for. It also pairs very nicely with a shot of espresso.
Key reasons I love this nutrition/energy bar
• Gluten-free, cold processed, and 100% vegetarian
• 9 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber
• 75% raw and alkaline forming (less acidity in the body)
• 220 calories and 11% iron
Here is a list of the ingredients (everything completely healthy and awesome fuel for the body). Organic almond butter, organic date paste, organic agave nectar, organic dark chocolate chips, organic brown rice protein, organic bio sprouts (flax and quinoa), organic raisins and organic sesame seeds.
So what an amazing treat before, during, after, or mid-day. In addition, everyone at Hammer Nutrition are awesome. They really care about their products, and fuel us athletes with the highest quality. I highly recommend all Hammer products and will be doing more reviews on their products in the future.
