Life update & AMRAP giveaway!

Updated at 2:49pm. Giveaway for 3 winners! 
_________
Long time, no post! But I’m back with a giveaway!

I’m always game to try new things but admittedly granola and granola bars (of any and every type) aren’t a favorite, they’re more of a necessity (no time, easily upset stomach, etc.).

If you didn’t catch my other posts, I started part-time, evening law school two weeks ago.  My life has been: workout, work (in a law firm) and school. It’s hard to fit in working out, let alone eating, into my schedule.

That being said, AMRAP bars are a perfect complement to my busy schedule.  These are post-workout paleo fuel bars.  I’ve been forcing myself to workout in the morning as there is no other time to workout.

AMRAP was nice enough to let me sample their 3 new flavors: Cashew Vanilla, Almond & Honey, and Fig & Cocao.

A little bit about AMRAP 
AMRAP creates food that is 100% Paleo, gluten-free, GMO-free, dairy-free, and unprocessed. Raw whole foods, like almond chunks, are a top priority in our bars because we know from experience it is clean fuel that feeds our bodies’ daily activity the best. Our bars have an optimal research-based combination of good proteins and carbs for well-rounded athletes. Recommended for a meal supplement or replacement, and especially a pre or post-workout snack. 

AMRAP‘s mission statement

As Many Rounds As Possible (AMRAP) defines our philosophy. Through determination, intensity, and focus, we aim to inspire and empower our community to reach their full health and fitness potential. Join us and together we will change the world. 

Pros: I LOVED the Cashew Vanilla flavor. Almond & Honey was a close second but Fig & Cocoa was just okay.  That being said, Fig anything has never been a favorite of mine. The textures greatly differ from each other. I really enjoyed the chunkiness of the Cashew Vanilla versus the sticky, chewy texture of Fig & Cocoa.  Unlike smoothies, these actually held me over post workout (8am) to lunch time (12pm).  Plus they are paleo and had a short list of all-natural ingredients.

Cons: The calorie count for these three flavors ranged from 270 to 320 which can be high and/or heavy for some people.  Also, some people may not love the whole paleo thing.  
Luckily, AMRAP is hosting a giveaway for THREE of my lucky readers. The THREE winners get to choose an 8 pack of one of the three new flavors: 

  • Fig Cacao, Almond Honey, OR Cashew Vanilla. 
  • Winners can be in US or Canada
