PureFit bars were created by a runner who understands the nutrional demands of a runner. While training for your next race or challenge, it's important to remember to provide our bodies with balanced and complete nutrition.
I'm not a big dairy lover at all. I do love cheese and yogurt, yes, I do realize they are forms of dairy. BUT, I'm not a big fan of milk. When Izzy was diagnosed with a milk sensitivity, I soon realized that maybe I have one as well and perhaps that is why I do not like milk.
In comes PureFit bars. PureFit bars are made to be easily digested and not upset our stomachs. I am very picky about what I eat before a run or a race because I do not want to risk an upset stomach when I'm out there. An upset belly definitely makes for a terrible run and potentially some uncomfortable situations. Before my long run with the girls two weekends ago, I ate the Chocolate Brownie Bar. Oh my. The taste was full of chocolate and the texture was perfect. I could see myself stocking up on these and taking with me for the Reach The Beach Relay this May. It was a perfect pre-run snack.
Before the Midwinter Classic 10-Miler race this past Sunday, I chose to eat the Peanut Butter Crunch bar. This flavor was amazing. Rich peanut butter and a smooth texture as well. I didn't feel much of a crunch either. My tummy felt great during the entire race as well!
Ward has taken a couple of the bars on his long runs and he has come back only to report that he thoroughly enjoys these bars. He says they are a perfect refuel on the the long runs and are satisfying.
Each PureFit bar has 18 grams of all natural, gluten-free, vegan protein. And best of all, they do not melt in their packaging. I don't know about you, but it more than annoying when you've been eyeing up a tasty snack only to find that it melted in the package. Sometimes I am desperate enough to just each the gooey mess, but I don't have to worry about this with my PureFit bars. Unfortunately, I cannot try this out right now since I am in Maine in the middle of winter. Hardly anything melts in Maine in February. (except for the snow right now during this incredible stretch of 40F weather we have going on right now!)

I was provided these bars to review and did not receive any further compensation. All opinions are 100% my own (and Ward's) and were not influenced by PureFit (other than their yumminess).
