Sometimes there are days at school when I don’t even have time to eat lunch, actually, a lot of the time… My hour long lunch break is typically spent cleaning up after my morning patient and preparing for my afternoon patient. Thankfully I have a full stock of nutrition bars in my locker for days like these.
I don’t know if it was a mere coincidence or fate, but PureFit recently contacted me. They wanted to send me samples of all their vegan/gluten free nutrition bars to review. Little did they know, that I was already a loyal customer! I gladly accepted their samples anyway ;-).
Pure Fit bars are not only vegan and gluten free, but they have 18 grams of protein. What’s even better is that they are all natural; I know and can pronounce every ingredient they contain. They are also specially balanced so that you maintain a stable blood sugar after eating them, so they are good for diabetics too.
I am addicted the the Peanut Butter Crunch flavor, but now that I have had the opportunity to try all the flavors- Granola Crunch, Almond Crunch, Chocolate Brownie, Almond Berry Crunch and Peanut Butter Crunch-I can truthfully say that they are all delicious… but the Peanut Butter Crunch is still my favorite :-). I love the creamy, light texture of these bars, and I can throw them in my bag and they never melt or get deformed. Vegans and non-vegans alike can enjoy these bars.
Where do vegans get their protein????
Since I get asked this question all the freaking time, I decided to make a salad which proves that yes, vegans can get enough protein. This salad has 35 grams of protein per serving, that’s about 70% of the daily recommended amount (for my weight/height). Not to mention it has about 70% of your daily fiber requirements. It’s simple, tasty and good for you.
All you haters that say vegans can’t get enough protein can SUCK IT! :-)
This recipe is so yummy! The flavor of the sweet, juicy grapes and the crunchy, fresh celery combined with the rich pecans and tempeh is pretty amazing. I made this for lunch over the weekend. My sister tried a bite and loved it so much that she immediately went to the store to buy more ingredients to make some for herself, because I wasn’t about to share, yes, its that good :-).
