Shannon's Weekly Chase

~Core Foods Review~

I feel like I am always on the go! From the time my feet hit the floor at 5:30 am until late at night when everyone is in bed it seems I am go, go, go! Getting a chance to have a sit down meal is few and far between most of the time. So, I was excited when I was given the opportunity to try CORE Foods.  

I was sent 3 different flavors to try: Raw Walnut Banana, Raw Cashew Cacao, and Raw Almond Raisin. 

CORE foods Defender Meals are FRESH with no preservatives. They arrived packed with an ice pack and instructions to store them in the freezer if they were not going to be eaten right away. Notice that the package says how long it will last in the refrigerator or the freezer. If stored in the freezer the instructions are to let it thaw for 10 minutes and then it is ready to eat. 

Defender meals are vegan and organic. The ingredients list is short and everything is easy to pronounce. :) 

I ate mine after my early morning run or after my spin/tabata classes. The instructions say to eat them with 2 glasses of water and you definitely do want to do that. It's supposed to be like a bowl of oatmeal and it does take like a bowl of raw oatmeal. The bars are not hard like other bars I have had. I found them very filling and I was satisfied for several hours. 

My favorite bar was the Raw Walnut Banana. If you like organic, raw foods then you will love these. Overall, I really liked these bars and will be purchasing some in the future. 

Be sure and check out CORE Foods on their websiteTwitter, and Facebook.

What are some of your On the go meal options?
