I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks & bars to take on the go, and recently I was able to try GoMacro bars!! GoMacro sent a complimentary box of assorted MacroBar Minis to some of the CROs (Chief Running Officers) of my #RunEatTweetAZ group for us to review! These bars are organic, vegan, soy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, and kosher! They also use mostly raw ingredients!
Overall there were 24 bars in the box with 11 different flavors including peanut butter, cashew, sunflower butter, and almond butter with carob to name a few!
Earlier I mentioned that I am always looking for healthy snacks. Well, with the rate of obesity and diseases going up, it’s becoming more and more important for us to get back to a macrobiotic diet. According to About.com, macrobiotics is a lifestyle and dietary philosophy that promotes health, longevity and healing, through a largely plant-based diet. A macrobiotic diet encourages purchasing organic and minimally treated food to reduce the presence of pesticides, hormones, and other toxins in your food. Purchasing locally sourced is another important aspect to ensure you will be eating foods natural to your environment.
So why do I bring up the subject of macrobiotics? Well, GoMacro is a family-owned company that believes that a macrobiotic lifestyle is critical to a long, healthy life and they are on a mission to promote a healthy sustainable lifestyle. The story of the family members is one of hope and courage. Read about how Amelia went from being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 to becoming a healthy, cancer-free businesswoman, bringing the world wholesome snacks with her daughter Jola!
I was excited to try the bars so I brought some with me to a #RunEatTweetAZ trail run event on June 8!
Here’s fellow CRO Corine (a.k.a. Zucchini Runner) and I enjoying our bars!
My husband Evan enjoys GoMacro bars after a workout too!
I love that the bars are made with REAL ingredients! Typically if I can’t pronounce a word on the ingredient list, I AVOID the product all together!
And you can actually SEE the ingredients in the bar! For instance, I can clearly see the dates, cranberries, raisins, and gluten-free oats in this bar!
Even the sesame seeds in the sesame butter bar can be seen! 🙂
