“Ho hum, another energy or protein bar” I thought to myself when my buddy who distributes natural foods gave me a Skout Trailbar to try. This time was different, Skout Natural foods based in Portland, Oregon has mastered the art of taste, quality and minimal processing. I tried all the flavors but my favorite is the Chocolate Coconut, the taste is amazing and look at the nutrition breakdown:
- INGREDIENT LIST: ORGANIC DATES, ORGANIC GLUTEN-FREE OATS, ORGANIC COCONUT, ORGANIC ALMONDS, ORGANIC BLUE AGAVE NECTAR, ORGANIC FAIR TRADE COCOA LIQUOR, SEA SALT
A bar such as this is designed for those who are all about a healthy lifestyle and very active, so if you if you have been inactive for a long period of time and your goal is classic weight-loss, first focus on getting your basic physical activity and meal formats dialed in then add something like this bar.
If you do use this bar as a means of dialing in your meal format, use this bar in the mornings or between breakfast and lunch when your metabolism is high, so that your body can break down and utilize the nutrients effectively!
Ever since I tried these bars, they have been part of every adventure, hike, snowboard session, trail run, bmx session or mountain bike trip. I am confident they would be great for your endeavors as well. Look them up! http://skoutnatural.com/
