If you’re like me, you spend a lot of time hungry from tons of awesome workouts but also a lot of time sitting at a desk and mindlessly snacking. In a busy life of wake up, workout, get to work, get to school, work work, phd phd, get home late, sleep, rinse and repeat…where do you find time to engage in healthy eating habits? In a grab and go lifestyle, is it possible to find nutritional balance? Enter Health Warrior Superfoods! I received 2 boxes of Health Warrior chia bars, along with an awesome marathon coloring book, to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Shitty snacking had met it’s match.
Health Warrior was founded in 2010 by college friends and former collegiate athletes who discovered that quality calories over quantity was the way to survive the post-collegiate, desk-bound lifestyle. After reading Born to Run (is there a runner who hasn’t read this book??), they discovered the nutrient dense superfood that is chia seeds. Ounce-for-ounce, chia boasts more omega-3s than salmon, more protein than an egg, more calcium than milk, and more fiber than flax. In addition, Health Warrior Chia Bars and Superfood Protein Bars are all gluten free, soy free, dairy free, vegan, and kosher!
“BUT Jessica”, you may ask, “if it’s ‘free’ of all that great tasting stuff, don’t they taste like crap??” To this I say “HELL NO!” I tested the vanilla almond and the peanut butter chia bars. They only have 4-5g of sugar each, and about 100 calories. It’s the perfect amount of sweetness and chewy texture for a mid-morning or afternoon snack, or a pre or post workout boost. The most happy discovery of all? You can break them up into some greek yogurt for a healthy, lower sugar granola alternative! No more unnecessary sugar spikes, huzzah! The bars are also nice and easy on the stomach, so they work just fine for me during a workout without GI distress. My only real complaint is that you do have to pick some chia seeds out of your teeth (a small price to pay for superfood yumminess).
For an added bonus you can print out the hilariously accurate “Marathon Training” coloring book for free here! Munch on some superfood and engage in cathartic coloring at the same time.
