Thunderbird was kind enough to send me a sampling of their real food bars. What I like most about these bars is just that…they are made with REAL FOOD.
When deciding which bar to try first, being a lover of carrot cake, I immediately zeroed in on the CASHEW + FIG + CARROT flavor.
Check out the simplicity of the ingredients…
INGREDIENTS: Dates, Cashews, Figs, Carrots, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Himalayan Sea Salt
NUTRITIONAL FACTS: Serv. Size 1.7oz (48g), Calories 150, Fat Cal. 26, Total Fat 3g (4% DV), Sat. Fat 0.5g (3% DV), Trans Fat 0g, Cholesterol 0mg, Sodium 204mg (8% DV), Total Carb. 29g (10% DV), Fiber 3g (11% DV), Sugars 26g, Protein 4g.
I am really impressed with the taste and texture of the bars and highly recommend them to my endurance athletes for fuel on their runs, bikes, etc. because they have a fair amount of bars that are lowfat and high carb.
Thunderbird also makes some bars that are higher fat which would be great for my clients who have trouble getting all of their fat macros in (I never seem to have trouble with that!). The HEMP + SUNFLOWER + PUMPKIN SEED bar has 22g fat and lower carbs at only 11g.
INGREDIENTS: Dates, Macadamia Nuts, Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Macadamia Nut Butter, Coconut Shreds, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Cinnamon, Himalayan Sea Salt.
