PureFit BarsThese bars are amazing! They have anywhere from 200-240 calories, 18 grams of protein, and less than two grams of saturated fat per bar. They are perfect fuel in the middle of my afternoon. Today I ate one to refuel as I was losing steam on a tough hill climb on my bike -- it worked!!! PureFit bars are vegan, kosher certified, and gluten-free. I just ordered six boxes online -- http://www.purefit.com/
Vega Sport Performance Protein
This stuff is fabulous for refueling after a tough workout. One scoop has 110 calories and 20 grams of protein, including branch chain amino acids. The instructions on the package say to mix one scoop with a cup of water. I prefer to mix it with water and a splash of orange juice, or better yet with a soy yogurt.
On a long run or bike ride, it's critical to take in fuel and electrolytes. Clif Bloks are easy to ingest. Three blocks contains 100 calories, 70 mg sodium, 20 mg potassium, and 24 grams of carbohydrates. I love the fact that the blocks are not messy like gels. And, they're tasty, kind of like gummi bears!
