When I am training to run a half or full marathon, protein is a key component for recovery. Fueling after long runs is where I often run into trouble. I have no appetite and getting in a good amount of protein within the first hour after I finish is critical. I have tried protein shakes and while I do like theJay Robb shakes, sometimes it is easier to have a bar, then to make sure I have almond milk or water to mix the protein powder with.
PureFit Nutrition Bars were named “Nutrition Bar of the Year” by Bike magazine. I was able to sample these bars over the past month and have been really impressed with them. I want to share some information about PureFit first, then I will get to my review.

I was very impressed with these bars. They tasted great and have 18 grams of protein per bar! I gave Jon the chocolate brownie and he really liked it. My favorite of the bars that I sampled is either the almond crunch or the peanut butter crunch. These bars did not upset my stomach in the least and had a great taste & texture. They are easy to keep in my purse, van or gym bag.
