If you have been following me for awhile you are probably aware of my love for these delicious, protein packed, organic, non-GM0 bars. Most of the GP'ers I've worked with and have been in contact with seem to tolerate them quite well, including myself. In addition, Go Macro was a big sponsor of the first annual Awareness for Gastroparesis Walk last September, donating funds for GP research and boxes of bars for the walkers and volunteers.
Here is what Go Macro has to say about their product:
"MacroBars are macrobiotic, vegan, energy and protein bars that are made fresh daily on a rural farm in S.W. Wisconsin. Minimally processed and certified organic, the bars utilize simple healthy ingredients to boost your immune system and help provide your body with essential nutrients. GoMacro products do not use any additives or preservatives, refined sugars or flours or dairy, thus helping to create a pH-balanced environment in your body, leading to better absorption of minerals and other nutrients.
The bars are sweetened with grain-based sweeteners. These sweeteners take longer to digest, thus avoiding the blood-sugar spikes associated with refined sugars. The fats in GoMacro bars are healthy fats derived from nuts and seeds containing omega3 fatty acids, minerals and vitamins. Carbs are complex carbs from whole grains. These are slow-burning carbs that boost energy levels throughout the day."
I've recently had a chance to try out the new protein bars which have had a slight change in ingredients, one of which replaces the brown rice protein with a mix of brown rice protein and pea protein. I'm happy to say both the Protein Purity (my favorite!) and Protein Pleasure taste great and settle wonderfully.
We will be giving away a package including one each of the following:
Protein Purity - Sunflower butter + chocolate = 10 g protein, 9 g fat, 1 g fiber, 260 calories
Protein Pleasure - Peanut butter chocolate chip = 12 g protein, 11 g fat, 3 g fiber, 290 calories
Wholehearted Heaven - Almond butter + carob = 3 g protein, 9 g fat, 2 g fiber, 230 calories

Thanks to everyone who left a comment. I am exploring some ideas to share more of these in case you are interested trying a sample. Stay tuned for more details!
