Allow me to paint you a picture: You wake up at the
butt crack of dawn. After a brief battle between the desire to continue sleeping and the will to kick start your day with a good sweat session, will wins. Victory number 1! Go you!
You pull on those cute, empowering gym clothes and head to the land of treadmills and iron. You sweat. I mean REALLY sweat. You’re dripping. You’re red in the face, and you. Feel. Awesome!
And then… grumble grumble. Grrr. Grumble grumble. Enter: The Hangry Athlete Beast!
You’re dripping. You’re red in the face. You feel awesome, and you are STARVING!
What to eat? You need something filled with nutrients, something to reenergize your muscles and your mind, and something tasty, of course.
Well, my rumbly-tumbly friends, allow me to introduce you to AMRAP Bars!
AMRAP. That kind of rings a bell…
So smart, you are, young grasshopper. AMRAP stands for “As Many Rounds As Possible” and is a term commonly used in the CrossFit world.
AMRAP Nutrition, however, goes beyond just CrossFit. They embrace and promote a healthy lifestyle, no matter your sport, through high quality products that don’t contain any preservatives, artificial sweeteners, or any ingredients you can’t pronounce.
Each AMRAP Bar is 100% Paleo, Non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, preservative and anything artificial-free. They also have a high fat to carb ratio (meant to increase lean mass and energy) and a good protein content to help rebuild muscles and fill the Hangry Athlete Beast that is growing inside your belly.
AMRAP Bars currently come in three flavors, Almond Honey, Cashew Vanilla, and Fig Cacao. Each bar is made with a simple yet thought out combination of ingredients. My personal favorite flavor is the Fig Cacao. It tastes like dessert! The nutrition it provided also fits best with my macros. Check out the ingredients. I can pronounce them all!
Ingredients for Fig Cacao:
Dates, Egg-White Protein, Figs, Almond Butter, Almonds, Unsweetened Coconut, Cacao Nibs, Coconut Oil
And the Nutrition Info (for Fig Cacao):
Calories: 270g, Fat: 13g, Carbs: 28g, Fiber: 4g, Protein: 15g
Nom nom nom.
The other bars, Almond Honey and Cashew Vanilla are also DELICIOUS! They’re a bit higher in calories and fat, so it was tougher to work them into my macros – but it’s all healthy fats from nuts and coconut, so I was totally fine with working the rest of my macros around them.
