I know, you're like "Elizabeth another nutrition bar? really?" But the market is filled with bars promising you that you'll lose weight, be stronger etcetc if only you eat this bar. And let's face it-we're all busy and sometimes a bar is a more realistic snack choice than fruit + nuts, or crackers + cheese. So I want to wade through the bar aisle to find you the ones that are actually good. Good tasting, good for you, good for the world.
And Rise is a new bar that fits all three of those criteria.
Rise Bars are 100% vegetarian and kosher, and do not contain gluten, GMOs, preservatives, peanuts or soy. They come in 3 "varsities"- Breakfast which has a nice blend of fruit +crispy rice + nuts + honey. Energy which is a vegan line of snack bars. I love their simple ingredient list:
Dates + Almonds + Coconut +Apples + Brown Rice Syrup + Tapioca Syrup + Amaranth +Raspberries + Pomegranate + Sea Salt
Protein+ bars contain 17g of protein thanks to added whey protein + almonds. I think they are the only bar with only 5 ingredients to contain that much protein.
Today is your lucky day because one of you gets a mixed box of Rise Bars! Entering is easy- just leave a comment on your favorite nutrition/energy bar, and what type of Rise Bar you would like to try.
