Months ago, I discovered a new-to-me snack bar at Whole Foods.
I'll admit—It was the packaging that originally caught my eye:
GoMacro bars are ridiculous in the best way possible.
They are so good and so good for you. With 11 different flavor combos to choose from, you're bound to find at least one (probably more) that interests your taste buds. Some are higher in protein than others, which is great for when you need some sustenance in between the gym and your next engagement. And for those of you that eat a gluten-free and/or vegan diet, you're in the clear with these guys. This company practices the "eat food, not too much, mostly plants" principle. Which then lends itself to the whole macrobiotic thing.
What is a macrobiotic diet? According to Wikipedia, it is "a dietary regimen which involves eating grains as a staple food, supplemented with other foods such as local vegetables, and avoiding the use of highly processed or refined foods and most animal products." To me, that just reiterates the fact that these bad boys lack all the gunk commonly found in protein and snack bars.
But, to be honest, one of my most favorite things about these bars has nothing to do with eating them. I love that they come from a family owned business built to promote a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. One family member developed breast cancer and subsequently turned to the macrobiotic way as a means to combat the cancer. So what started as a kitchen experiment blossomed into an awesome business. Yay for the little guys making it big in this food industry world we live in!
With that, I offer you a box.
