REVIEW: RUSH TRAINING BARS
Have you ever been on a hunt for a raw bar that doesn’t taste like cardboard dipped in sugar? Or have you been in search of a raw bar that is free from all the bad stuff such as preservatives, and added sugar? Well, I once was on such a chase and now I have arrived. I am excited to introduce you to the Rush Training Bars which are powered by ingredients such as pumpkin seeds, raw honey, dates, coconut, cinnamon and a load more of other unprocessed goodies which I will unpack as this awesome introduction unfolds.
The Rush Training bars are not exactly new on the market. They have been around for a while and they actually are kind of a big deal. These raw bars are award winners. They scooped the Women’s Health Supermarket Star award for great tasting, quality, and clean ingredients. Now, how cool is that?!
Now that you know that I am not selling you fluff, and pleasantries have been exchanged, you can now virtually shake hands with Rush Training Bars. Let’s move along with the full introduction now.
WHY RUSH TRAINING BARS ARE ONE OF THE BEST GREAT TASTING RAW BARS
I had a chance of tasting the Training Bars when I received a box of the yummy bars from Rush. The first bite I took, I fell in love instantly and gobbled up two bars in one sitting. What was incredible was that I could taste a combination of beautiful flavours, all in one bar. (By the way, Rush Training Bars are only available in one flavour, with an optimal carb/protein ration of 3:1).
In order for me to loosely describe the taste to you, here is what I would like you to do:
Picture cranberries, raisins, oats, almonds, dates, pomegranates, all fused together in one bar! Yep, it is explosive in a very delightful and mouth-watering way. I liked that the texture of these raw bars is quite grainy and not chewy like so many bars on the market. Rush Training Bars are a hit and they can have my money anytime.
HOW OFTEN CAN YOU HAVE A RUSH TRAINING BAR
You can munch the Training Bars to meet your training goals. The raw bars are designed to fuel your energy during training, as well as build muscle and prevent the breakdown of proteins during strenuous training. You can also slide the bars into your everyday life for that ‘feel good’ feeling, thanks to the immune and energy boosting ingredients that the bars are packed with.
I had the bars mostly while working out in the mornings or as snacks in between my meals.
SO, WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS YOU ASK?
The Rush Training bars contain a lot of ingredients but don’t be alarmed, they are all natural. As I mentioned earlier, these bars are free from dairy, preservatives, added sugar, and contain the good stuff such as Camu Camu which happens to be a great source of Vitamin C; Maca Root which counters adverse sources of stress and allows the body to adapt naturally to stressful training/lifestyle conditions.
