PureFit Nutrition Bars

I've been noshing on these gluten-free, vegan nutrition bars at various race expos for quite a while now, and now I'm finally writing about them!

Besides being free of the commonly found whey that both disgusts and sickens me and the artificial sugars that taste sub-par and bloat me, these bars are high-protein (~14 g per bar, with ~230 calories) and all-natural.

So far, I have tried the chocolate, almond, strawberry, and peanut butter flavors. I actually like all of them. The flavors are there but not overpowering (particularly in the chocolate one). The texture of these bars is chewy -- you won't find a lot of huge chunks of anything in them. The moisture level is on the low side, but the bar is not crumbly at all.

I really like these bars. I haven't been purchasing too many bars lately, so I'm not sure if I will be getting some unless I need a quick meal and they happen to be around. Additionally, I'm not sure if they are widely available, but if you see them, you should give 'em a try.

  1. Thanks for the tip. I am going to the gym today to stretch, use foam rollers and do some arm work. I love days like these when I don't have to workout hard.

    I wish I could come watch you do SB relay but since I can't, I wanted to wish you luck and know that you will do great. Have a great time!!
