A Physician Recommended RxBar to Me! Review + #Giveaway

I was on an informational job interview last spring with a health coaching company led by two physicians.  I told one of the physicians about my blog and my passion for running, nutrition, health and wellness. He reached into his drawer and pulled out some RxBars and told me I had to try them. Well, that has never happened to me before! My friend, Leslye had mentioned these to me when I was doing my elimination diet, but they are made with egg whites, so I did not try them. Luckily for me, I added eggs back into my diet with no ill effects after the elimination, so I tried the RxBars that the kind doctor offered. They were DELICIOUS. I checked out their website and reached out to see if they would be interested in a review and giveaway. They said “yes” and sent me one of every flavor!

Screen Shot 2015-02-01 at 1.49.24 PMRxBar believes “that food should be simple and delicious without compromising nutrition. [They] believe that food should be consumed as nature intended.”  I could not agree more. They were one of the first whole food nutrition bars on the scene. They are made with minimal ingredients and are “prescribed by nature” to give a balance of protein, health fats and high fiber natural carbohydrates. They commit that RxBars will NEVER contain: dairy, soy, gluten, added sugars, artificial sweeteners, whey, sugar alcohols, GMOs or preservatives. They set out to “create a protein bar we felt good about eating and that made us feel great after we ate it. And we think we’ve done a pretty good job.” Again, I agree!

The bars come in 5 “Whole30 approved” flavors:

  • Peanut Butter – I love the simple ingredients in these bars. “No BS” for sure! Just dates, egg whites, peanuts, figs, peanut oil, sea salt. I love peanut butter so these simple, but tasty and filling, bars make me happy.
  • Blueberry – I am also a big blueberry fan. These bars are a bit sweeter than the Peanut Butter ones. They contain dates, egg whites, almonds, figs, blueberries, apple juice concentrate, natural blueberry flavor.
  • Coconut Cacao – One of their best sellers, this bar is delish. They add coconut and cacao to the base of egg white, almond, date and fig base and voila
  • Coffee Cacao – My fave, of course! I love coffee and chocolate and in a healthy bundle like this one. This is a true winner. They add coffee and cacao to the base of egg white, almond, date and fig base and voila – delicious AND 12 grams of protein.
  • Apple Cinnamon – A “nostalgic” flavor with apples and cinnamon added to the base of egg white, almond, date and fig base. These have a nice sweet, mild flavor, but apple cinnamon is not my fave bar flavor. If it is yours, I would recommend it.

I like all of the flavors and the cacao ones are my faves – especially Coffee Cacao. For me, these are a great afternoon snack or breakfast in a pinch. They are real food and they are also filling and satisfying. It is not easy to find delicious, portable real food snacks. These are great for travelers and especially for folks doing the Whole30 like my colleague Monica.
