Rise Bar Review

If you're anything like me, you're always on the go.Sometimes it's hard to have a complete, sit down meal when you're so busy. I think that is why protein bars have become to popular, quick-easy-portable. It seems as if everywhere you go there is a new type of "bar" to choose from,so how do you know which one to pick?

I personally focus on three things(in this order) when choosing: Ingredients, Proteins and Sugars. 
Why not calories? 
If I am putting natural, raw ingredients in my body that is more important than calories. I know my body will process them better and in turn, burn them off more efficiently.

Which brings me to RiseBar. They recently were kind enough to send me a sample pack because there were no stores close to me that carried them, and I was ecstatic. They come in 3 varieties: Breakfast, Protein+ and Energy+, and in each variety there are different flavors. So no matter what your food needs are, Rise Bars can meet them.

The first flavor I tried was the Crunchy Cranberry Apple-breakfast bar- and I was instantly hooked. With only 160 calories, 3g protein and six ingredients: almonds,honey,dates,apples,cranberries and amaranth crisp rice, it was a great way to start the morning! I ate it on my way to the train, post workout, (7:15 am) and it held me until 10:30 am.

Another favorite of mine was the Crunchy Macadamia Pineapple, which again had only 160 calories,3g protein and six ingredients. This bar had more of a crunch than the apple, but I found both to be equally delicious.

This bar was my least favorite of the bunch. I think it may have been the lack of amaranth crisp rice or the boring color, I'm not quite sure, I just know it wasn't for me. However it only has 3 ingredients (almonds,honey and whey protein) and 280 calories with 20g of protein, perfect for a pre/post workout meal.

In addition to being delicious, Rise bars both are vegetarian and Kosher and free of gluten, preservatives, GMOs, soy and peanuts. So you really can't go wrong!  
 If you see these bars, I recommend picking a few up and trying them for yourself. They're good and good for you, a win-win combination! 

Thanks again to RiseBar for sending me these treats :) I am a big fan

These looks and sound delicious! I'm always looking for new post-workout snacks. I've never seen them in the grocery store though. Have you?
