It is a matter of survival. Having an energy bar readily available is a must with my busy lifestyle. But finding a yummy gluten-free bar is a challenge. No more – I love these SoLo GI Energy Bars.
I have a full time day job, teach yoga, perform weddings and am active in a musical theatre company. I have a go go go lifestyle… always doing something. I travel around the city to accomplish all these things. As someone who is gluten intolerant, I need to plan my meals. I just can’t rely on “just picking something up”. Coffee shops with their baked goods are no good for me… ditto to hamburger and pizza places. That is why I always carry two energy bars with me.
A good tasting energy bar is a challenge to find. Many taste like refined sugars or processed chalk. Or the other end of the spectrum is I feel like I am eating raw seeds and nuts. I already carry nuts, seeds and dried fruit – so those are no fun.
I was happy to receive a box of SoLo GI Energy Bars that covered all their flavors: Peanut Power, Chocolate Charger, Lemon Lift, Dark Chocolate Mandarin and Pineapple Coconut. They are all scrumptious. Every one was a treat to eat. What a pleasant surprise to actually enjoy the flavor of an energy bar.. I felt like I was cheating.
