GoMacro - One my absolute favorite bars! *GIVEAWAY*
Hi Friends! Happy Tuesdays :) What is it about this week that just feels good? I think mostly because this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend (which I actually forgot about until earlier this week, so what an awesome surprise!).
Today I'm coming at you with one of my absolute favorite brands, GoMacro. I first heard about GoMacro when I was starting my journey to heal from SIBO a couple of years ago. The (ever-amazing) Kate Scarlata recommended the peanut butter chocolate chip flavor to me as a low-FODMAP snack option, and I've been religiously repurchasing these GoMacro bars ever since. A lot of times, I'll keep one of these bars in my purse for those on-the-go snack emergencies because they're dense enough to fill me up for more than 15 minutes (they're around 250-270 calories) and never irritate my sensitive stomach. They also have new mini-sizes (what is it about anything mini that makes it better?) if you are looking for a lighter snack around (around 100 calories for reference).
Check out the amazing ingredient list for the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavor: Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Peanut Butter, Organic Protein Blend (Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein, Organic Pea Protein), Organic Puffed Brown Rice, Organic Fair Trade Chocolate Chips (Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Cocoa, Organic Cocoa Butter), Organic Peanuts.
And that's IT! How awesome is that? In addition to the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, I've also religiously repurchased Sunflower butter + Chocolate (also low-FODMAP), Peanut butter Protein Replenishment (can you tell peanut butter is one of my top three favorite foods?), Almond Butter & Carob, Coconut + Almond Butter + Chocolate Chips, and Granola & Coconut. They are all BOMB.
So given how much I eat these bars on my own, when GoMacro reached out about collaborating for a giveaway on my Instagram page, you can imagine how excited I was. Even more amazing is the mission behind the case of Protein Replenishment Bars which I'll be giving away.
GoMacro will be donating 10% of sales of Protein Replenishment (PB) MacroBar to the Farm Sanctuary, throughout the month of May. As a manufacturer of plant based protein bars, GoMacro is dedicated to supporting organizations who Promote a compassionate vegan lifestyle, by educating millions about the benefits of a plant-based diet for the improvement of our health, the conditions of farm animals and the health of our environment. Farm Sanctuary has 3 sanctuaries (2 in California & 1 in NY), where they house rescued & abused animals, as well as educate local communities on living humane & sustainable lives. Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization.
Honestly, it gives me chills that I have the opportunity to collaborate with GoMacro to support this amazing cause. Check out the giveaway on my Instagram (at the top right of my home page, or at the very bottom), and enter to win a case (12 bars!) Good luck friends!
