MacroBars are macrobiotic, vegan, energy and protein bars that are made fresh daily on a rural farm in S.W. Wisconsin. Minimally processed and certified organic, the bars utilize simple healthy ingredients to boost your immune system and help provide your body with essential nutrients. The macrobiotic approach to food is dynamic. GoMacro products do not use any additives or preservatives, refined sugars or flours or dairy, thus helping to create a pH-balanced environment in your body, leading to better absorption of minerals and other nutrients. The macrobiotic approach to food is dynamic. What works for one person may not work for another and the needs of each person vary from day to day so each bar is designed to cater to individual needs. Whether you need protein, energy or fiber; a meal replacement, a healthy snack or a delicious dessert you will find it in MacroBars.
The bars are sweetened with grain-based sweeteners. These sweeteners take longer to digest, thus avoiding the blood-sugar spikes associated with refined sugars. The fats in GoMacro bars are healthy fats derived from nuts and seeds containing omega3 fatty acids, minerals and vitamins. Carbs are complex carbs from whole grains. These are slow-burning carbs that boost energy levels throughout the day. Protein comes from brown rice protein – a great high protein alternative to animal products and soy.
I’d been keeping my eyes peeled for MacroBars around here with no such luck. Looking on amazon and the GoMacro website, I only found the ability to purchase individually, or in an entire case of the same flavor. Well, that’s not something I was very interested in. I really just wanted to purchase a sampler! When I inquired about where I might be able to find something, Amelia was so kind as to offer to send me some to try.
Through reading the company history and their motive, you can tell that this is a company to support. Reading the descriptions of my new bars, I was sure I would love them all…the question would be which ones I wanted a case of!
First, I tried the Cashew Caramel flavor.
Cashew Caramel is one of their macronutrient bars meaning…
The MacroNutrient bars are made with organic superfoods and sweetened with raw organic agave nectar. They are high in Omega-3, fiber, folate and many other vitamins and minerals.
MacroNutrient Bars contain seven organic superfoods.
- • Quinoa – A complete protein with all nine essential amino acids
- • Flax Sprouts – Extremely high in omega-3
- • Brown Rice Bran – Helps control blood sugar and cholesterol
- • Pea Fiber – A concentrated fiber source to assist weight loss
- • Broccoli Sprouts – Full of cancer protective compounds
- • Spirulina – Nature’s most concentrated nutrient source
- • Cinnamon – Improves energy and vitality
So – the bar talks the talk. Can it walk the walk? Yes!
- “full” factor
- seven organic superfoods
- organic, vegan, and gluten free
- sort of a gritty texture from the brown rice protein powder
Let it be known that the con is not enough to make me disliked it. I love chewy bars like this over crunchy!
Speaking of chewy, next up was the cashew butter macrobar.
Another major win! This one did not have the addition of brown rice protein, nor the seven organic superfoods, but still had a good “full factor.” Just simple, healthy ingredients! I loved the addition of puffed brown rice. Not only do I love puffed rice, but it took it to the next level from just being some cashew butter with cashews mixed in.
I’ve always got my eye out for delicious, simple bars, with preference to soy free and vegan bars. Ingredients can’t get any simpler and the result is perfection. I can’t wait to sample the rest!
