You may or may not have heard about how important it is to refuel properly after workouts. If you haven't, make sure you check out my post "What Should You Eat After a Workout?" I really break it down for you - how much protein you need, how many carbs you need and how fast you should eat these after your workout.
One great way to refuel after a workout in a convenient way is through a protein bar. The problem with most protein bars is that they are either yucky or chock full of nasty ingredients. So, can you find a delicious, healthy protein bar?
You sure can - thanks to Squarebar. These bars are certified organic and non-GMO, have 12 grams of complete protein, and do NOT have an ingredient list a mile long full of icky preservatives and artificial junk. Here are a few more things I love about them:
- No Refined Sugar
- Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Peanut-Free, Corn-Free, Rectangle-Free
- Coconut Nectar Sweetened (Low Glycemic)
- No Added "Natural Flavors"
- Real Chocolate Coated
- Free Shipping Orders Over $49
I also love how Squarebar began. It all started in the San Francisco kitchen of husband and wife Sarah & Andrew Gordon. Sarah has battled asthma most all her life. It was following yet another visit to urgent care she discovered that eliminating inflammatories like gluten, dairy, and soy from her diet could free her from medication. To this day, Sarah has not had another asthma-related urgent care visit, and we do not even keep an inhaler in the house! Pretty cool, right?
Eat clean and workout hard is one of my mantras, and you can do that with a delicious Squarebar after your workouts (or for breakfast or lunch or really anytime). I personally love the combo pack where you get 4 Cocoa Almond, 4 Cocoa Crunch, and 4 Cocoa Coconut. Head on over and check out all the goodies!
