Heath Warrior was founded by two former NCAA Division 1 Athletes, Dan Gluck and Nick Morris, who discovered Chia seeds and the wonderful health benefits they have, after learning about the Tarahumara Indians in the book, “Born to Run.” The Tarahumara Indians consumed great amounts of Chia seeds in their diet on a daily basis and would run up to a hundred miles barefoot. Dan and Nick, both very interested, did further research on Chia seeds and developed an easy way to consume them by creating a 100-calorie super nutritious bar that comes in three flavors: Coconut, Acai Berry and Chocolate Peanut Butter. Each bar is gluten-free and contains all natural ingredients, including agave syrup for sweetness, 4 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.I’m not much of a “snack bar” fan, as I would rather snack on whole foods such as nuts or fruit and most of the bars that I have tried, don’t taste that great. When I first tried Health Warrior’s bar, tasting the chocolate peanut butter flavor first, I was pleasantly surprised! Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t exactly taste like a real scoop of peanut butter with a piece of chocolate, but it did come close! The bar had “hints” of chocolate and peanut butter. In addition, I liked the grainy texture and chewiness of the bar (something that other bars lack). I prefer soft and chewy bars (if I’m going to have one) and Health Warrior’s bars are definitely that! The acai berry flavor is also good, with a nice hint of berry, but to he honest, I’m not a fan of the coconut. The coconut bar contained too much coconut for my taste.
Overall, I liked the bars and they are a great, healthy snack for when you are on the go. I like that they only cost you 100 calories, so they won’t break the “calorie bank,” if you are watching your calories. They are also a perfect snack for kids, as Keenan loved them! His favorite flavor is chocolate peanut butter. You can find the bars at Whole Foods , or you can buy them directly from Health Warrior .
Since Health Warrior was so generous, they offered to send one lucky reader a box of their bars, too!
