Fueling for a workout and recovery following were always a mystery to me. Ok, they still are, but I’m learning.
I was always nervous to eat a protein bar because I didn’t know if my body needed it, and was usually scared away by the calorie count. I’ve learned a lot on this last year, and what I do know is that protein is good, and not all calories are bad.
I admit, I lost weight a lot more quickly and easily when I was watching my calories carefully and keeping to low-cal food, but I am leaning a lot more and hoping to use my body more efficiently in the long run with the choices I make.
I’m working on teaching my little ones to be healthy for life, not just until a few pounds come off. Although, I wouldn’t mind if quite a few more pounds came off in the process!
That is why I’m so interested to lean about different ways of fueling my body efficiently on the go. Hello! Momma of a 1 and (now) 3 year old! What can I stuff in my mouth in the car, while cleaning toys, or dodging little ones!?
I was looking forward to participating in the Fitfluential Twitter chat with Detour Bar a couple weeks ago. I always love Fitfluential Chats and I meet some amazing people and learn so much. I won’t lie, I was also hoping to win some Detour SMART bars! There are so many choices out there it is overwhelming, but I love what Detour had to share!
Remember how I said I never knew whether a protein bar was right for me? I mean, in my mind, I’m not working out hard enough, I’m not really lifting any weights… Detour shared a great article about why we need protein which helped me understand. I also loved learning that SMART bars are gluten free, low sugar, include whey protein, and are a good source of fiber (which I remember back from my Weight Watcher days means: filling and keeps you satisfied longer).
It was a great chat and I didn’t win… But I basically did, because Detour approached me after the chat and offered to send me some bars to review! How lucky is that?!
They taste fantastic! My hands-down favorite is the apple cinnamon – I could eat those every day! Next up would be the blueberry because there aren’t a lot of blueberry items and it is tasty. Then comes the Cranberry Flax, also good but with that definite bite of cranberries. I’m saving that for Cranberry Festival so I can participate in the cranberry goodness without having mine dried with added sugar. What!?? You don’t have a Cranberry Festival where you live? You’re missing out! It’s a Wisconsin thing, we drive through a town that has a Rutabaga Fest – big events in the are by our cabin! 🙂
I love these! They taste great, are a fantastic little size for those of us put off by the calorie count in larger bars, and they keep me going.
