We're thrilled to be including Ally's Bar in our June/July subscription boxes! We chatted with creator and professional cyclist Ally Stacher to get the inside scoop:
On why she started Ally's Bar:I have always loved the outdoors, almost as much as I love making delicious food. The combination of these two awesome things pushed me to create a bar made from real food. I have been a professional athlete since 2010 and I have always been a firm believer that you get out of your body what you put in it. I started making bars for my health conscious family and friends to fuel all their different adventures. In no time, they became a hot commodity. I brought on a couple of business partners to help me dream big and launch Ally’s Bar.
On what makes her bar different than the rest:This is not your average health bar. The uniqueness comes from the sweet potato base combined with dates, quinoa, nuts and other tasty ingredients. Our bar is low in the glycemic index, which helps the body maintain a higher energy level for a longer period of time. It’s loaded with vitamin A and C, beta-carotene, fiber and iron. The quinoa adds high quality protein. You get doses of healthy fats from the coconut oil, cashews, almonds and flax seeds. The original sweet potato bar is certified organic by eco-cert, gluten free, non-GMO and vegan friendly.
On When to Use the Bar:
Pre-Workout, during workouts, with coffee in the morning and smart afternoon snacking.
