Oooo Canada! I am happily and proudly Canadian. That’s why when I came across these Nutrition bars at a small grocery store in Coombs.. I knew I had to snatch up a few (after getting to sample a few tasty morsels!) This fabulous trio of flavors were put together in Qualicum, BC- and I am STOKED on a Canadian protein and health bar!!
This one is my favorite- ‘Fortify’ Chocolate almond. Again, I love anything chocolate and nuts. This flavor takes me back to an old time favorite (chocolate covered almonds), but with tons of health benefits to back it up. Its a perfect on the go snack, for when you can’t sit down and eat (I nevvver get to being a hairstylist) and actually fills you up.
Fortify- (Chocolate almond) Said to kick start metabolism, increase availability of amino acids and decrease exercise-induced catabolism of protein. Basically, this bar breaks it down for you pre-workout, and continues to push you through. PERFECT for grab and go eats as well.
Ingredients list: Almond Butter, Raw Agave Nectar, Brown Rice Crisps (Brown Rice Flour, Evaporated Cane Juice, Sea Salt, Molasses), Raisins, Spelt Grain, Cocoa Powder, Kamut ® Khorasan Wheat Grain, Whole Oats, Hemp Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Flax Seeds.
Maintain- (Cranberry lime) If you wanna go harder, better, faster, stronger. Fuels your body, easily digestible (hello ancient grains!) and super citrusy.
Ingredients list: Dried Cranberries, Cashew Butter (Dry Roasted Cashews, Sunflower Oil), Spelt Grain, Raw Agave Nectar, Kamut ® Khorasan Wheat Grain, Brown Rice Crisps (Brown Rice Flour, Evaporated Cane Juice, Sea Salt, Molasses), Whole Oats, Hemp Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Quinoa, Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Lime Juice, Flax Seeds.
Replenish- (Chocolate Coconut) The recovery bar. For after those long intense workouts, or just as a boost if you haven’t been able to snack on anything throughout the day. Has all your essential healthy sugars and fats, yet has a HEFTY 18g of VEGAN protein in it! Can I get a hell yea!? Also, speeds up muscle recovery. And, tastes fab.

Besides the delicious product, I love their mission statement
We are engaged in the global adventure of discovering and delivering real food that will energize, heal and delight the soul.
And that they do! These bars make me smile from ear to ear to think they were made on the rock, and proud to boast about them. You can’t yet order from them online, but their working on it. On their website you will be able to find store locations that hold these, and get news updates on whats going on with products, sponsors and more. The only issue I have with these is the agave nectar, as I have heard so many downfalls on it.. Basically, agave is a starchy liquid with high levels of fructose, and a complex carbohydrate.. But, since its burst into the health market, full throttle, I’m guessing most companies will dwindle away from it in time. Its mostly used as a binding agent. All of that aside-
These bars are definitely worth trying. Awesome texture, 3 highly delicious flavors, Canadian, and they work.
