Picky Bars were new to The Feed about a year ago, and have quickly become one of our best-sellers. Picky Bars are the brain-child of 3 professional athletes, Jessie Thomas, Lauren Fleshman, and Steph Bruce. The bars they created are delicious and perfect for fueling your endurance sports.
Every Picky Bar starts with the same framework: Dates, a nut or seed butter, rice protein, and crispy brown rice cereal (to lighten it up and give a little crunch!) Then each flavor gets unique mix ins - nuts, dried fruits, chocolate chips, coffee, etc - added in just the right combination that hits the 200 calorie, 28g carbs, 7g protein, 7g fat sweet spot. 75% of the sugars are from fruit sources, with the rest coming from chocolate and agave or honey; this delivers just the right blend of quick and long-lasting energy, while still maintaining a level blood sugar.
: Consume 1 per hour during workouts lasting 90 minutes or longer. Always follow with water.
: Built with a 4:1 carb to protein ratio and several mouth-watering flavors, these 200 calorie bars make refueling delicious, easy, and fun - even if you’re picky!
The Tour de France kicks off this Saturday with beautiful Mont-Saint-Michel as the location for the Grand Départ. This medium length (188km) stage will be mostly flat and therefore the sprinters will be saving up their reserves for the finish line at Utah Beach.
How does one keep a balanced fueling plan on a ride like this? We'd recommend Picky bars! Picky bars have multiple delicious and authentic flavors that make snacking enjoyable. Eight different flavors such as Cookie Doughness, Lauren's Mega Nuts, and Smooth Caffeinator are all just 200 calories and perfect for fueling up. Created by professional athletes, Picky Bars are catered specifically to enhance athletes' training. With a 4:1 carb to protein ratio this gluten free, dairy free, and soy free product promotes balanced blood sugar, sustained energy, and nutrient absorption. The bars are built with great ingredients you already know and love: agave, dates, blueberries, cinnamon, natural almond butter, sea salt, sunflower seeds and more.
