Another First....A Giveaway!!

AMRAP Nutrition is introducing a new, awesome, nutrient dense refueling bar this week and I was lucky enough to be part of their launch!

I am always looking for ways to get protein, especially after I run, as I don't always have the time to cook a meal and protein shakes can get old fast. I could also see using these to fuel before my workout as they all contain unsweetened coconut, which has been shown to be a great source of quick, available energy and boost metabolism as well. I also love that ALL of the bars are a good source of iron, ranging between 8-15% of the RDA per bar.

Originally geared toward the Crossfit Paleo lifestyle, AMRAP has developed a refueling bar that is loaded with nutrients; protein to help repair and build muscles and good fats for energy, while meeting the needs of a clean diet.  No fillers, no ingredients you can't pronounce or don't recognize, just 7-8 real food ingredients such as egg whites, honey, unsweetened coconut and a variety of nuts and nut butters.


Through determination, intensity, and focus, we aim to inspire and empower our community to reach their full potential. Together we will change the world.

AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) describes our company. Our philosophy is simple: produce high quality products, never use preservatives or artificial sweeteners, promote the paleo diet and live a healthy lifestyle.
Company Overview
If you can't grow, gather or kill it you won't find it in our products. We use only high quality, clean, delicious ingredients that will heal, fuel or recover your human machine!

Your expectations are very high, and we hope to rise above and beyond them.
Even though they were designed with the Crossfit athlete in mind, these are perfect for any after workout activity, especially running.  While they are not as high in protein as some of the other well known protein bars, they still deliver between 12-15g of protein a bar.  BUT, they are filling and they have no hints of that fake sweetness I've tasted with other bars.  I tried a Quest bar last week and couldn't finish it (or even get halfway through it) because of the "fake" sugar taste it left on my palate.  This is what AMRAP bars leave out...they are naturally sweet, no unnatural/faux sugar needed.  The honey and unsweetened coconut add plenty of sweetness to the bars.

AMRAP bars come in three flavors:

Cashew & Vanilla

Fig & Cacao

Almond & Honey

My favorite was definitely the Almond & Honey; it was the first bar I tried.  I am not a huge fan of foods with nuts, but honestly, this was *really* good.  I was a little hesitant because of the fat content of this particular bar, as they other two have significant;y less fat, but reminded myself it was "good" fat.   Cashew & Vanilla was a close second.  I didn't care for the Fig & Cacao as much compared to the other two, but it was still tasty.'s your chance to win some of these awesome, brand new to the market, refueling bars.  AMRAP has given me the opportunity to give away THREE boxes (8 bars each) of the winner's choice in flavor!

  1. These sound really good. I'm highly sensitive to artificial sweeteners so a lot of bars on the market are a no-go for me. Post-run, if I don't have time for a protein shake, I will eat a couple of hardboiled eggs or a handful of nuts.

  2. I love using protein shakes to refuel.. or a quest bar

  3. I eat Luna Bars, but I wouldn't mind trying other brands.

  4. I usually have a spoonful of peanut butter or a handful of mixed nuts.
