Rise Bars

I found out about Rise Bars during Earth Day at Balboa Park.  Unfortunately Joe, Allie and I arrived to the Park at the tail end of the event and they didn't have any samples to try, but I added it to my list of gluten free products to try.  I'm always on the lookout for a great bar to have available while traveling or on-the-go; gluten free eaters are so often limited while traveling to a healthy option.  I was just recently traveling back and forth to Boston for my college reunion and was frustrated about the lack of options available in the Detroit airport.  Complaining about airport food (and airports generally) is nothing new, but passing through airports and keeping a gluten free diet makes for even less options.

Fortunately I had packed a few Rise Bars for my travels back and forth across the country.  These bars are awesome!  I love the simple ingredients list, often containing only a few items.  In my personal favorite, the Almond Honey protein bar, there are just three ingredients: almonds, honey, and whey protein isolate.  It's great to understand what I'm eating rather than have to try and decipher a laundry list of ingredients, half of which I can barely pronounce.  The additional protein content of Rise Bars sets them apart from other fruit and nut bars (like Larabar).

I'll definitely be adding Rise Bars to my mix of regular bars to pack when I travel or if I'm on a long hike.
