I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend - I've spent mine working, doing some studying, and some hanging out with friends. Not a half bad weekend for 7th week!
I have a really awesome review for you today. I usually don't review too many products because I personally don't like reading a lot of reviews on other blogs, but when I hear about a product that's really stellar, I want to tell you about it!
I got the chance to try CORE Defender Meals from CORE Foods through my SweatPink ambassadorship, and I'm so glad that I did. CORE Meals aren't your average 'health' bar. CORE meals are a fresh, full bowl of raw oatmeal to go - in bar form! Each of the bars is made from 7 raw, organic, whole foods ingredients.
When you eat one of the bars, you're supposed to drink a bottle of water (2 glasses) with it to equal 1 full bowl of oatmeal. I was a little skeptical of the staying power of these bars because usually a bar never fill me up like a meal does - but of all the bars I've had, these were the most filling.
My favorite bar was definitely the raw almond raisin bar - it tasted just like a bowl of oatmeal I would've made myself at home. And these bars were PERFECT for long hours of studying at the library. Nothing like healthy energy to power you through lots of work!
Not only are the nutrition stats, ingredients, taste, and staying power of these bars amazing - but the company is really incredible as well. CORE foods is a certified B corporation & they reinvest all of their profit into food, community, and the planet. Basically, they make really awesome food because they LOVE it, not because they're trying to make money off of us. And companies like that are companies that I love.
I'd love for you guys to try out these bars too - if you "like" CORE Foods on Facebook, you get a $5 coupon code good for any online order and you can also enter to win a free case of the bars! Here's the link for the coupon code.
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your weekend - I'll be back soon with the latest eats & workouts!
