Picky bars are the creation of three picky athletes who need to eat. Lauren Fleshman (2x USA 5k champ, 5x NCAA champ, & master chef), Steph Rothstein (sub 2:30 marathon runner with celiac disease) and Jesse Thomas (elite triathlete and gluten intolerant) , the creators, owners, and operators of Picky Bars wanted to make an easy to grab , champion worthy snack that fit with their picky (due to elite athlete status and medical issues) appetites.
According to them: The all natural, gluten free, vegan, Picky Bars are made with a balanced macro nutrients ratio – 4:1 Carbs to Protein. According to Lauren: "I wanted a 4:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio, slow releasing carbs for level blood sugar, minimal soy content, and healthy fats making up 25% of the calories" .The 200 calorie bars have 7g fat, 28g carbohydrate, 7g protein, and 2-3g of soluble fiber, all derived from a selection of all natural ingredients (like organic dates, organic almonds, cranberries, chocolate, and more !) No artificial ingredients or sweeteners, chemical free. They are a perfect before workout fuel or post workout recovery snack.
According to me: I was a little hesitant. Like I said, I'm picky (ha!). And when a bar looks like this:
Picky Bar - you have passed the ultimate picky "bar" connoisseur test. I 'm going to go even further than simply saying "I'd recommend them to anyone". Nope, instead I'll just say ...I think I love you.
