I LOVE myself a delicious ‘bar’, as my lovely friend Dena (of The Perfect Bite, Boston) so endearingly calls them. If you don’t know what a 'bar’ is, well, I am referring to health food bars, bars with nutrition in them, compact, rectangular pieces of food that tend to be cutely packaged in eye-catching wrap.  

So, when my dear family friend, Meghan Schloat (Asphalt Green Cycling Team’s woman extraordinaire & my sister from another mister) posted a review about ZingBars, I just couldn’t resist to comment about my excitement for these bad boys (or girls). 

I have yet to get my Zing on, but having recently trained for a half marathon I struggled to find something delicious, yet nutritious for my longer endurance runs. These ZingBars seem like THE perfect fit.   Meghan writes, “By combining all-natural low-glycemic carbohydrates (agave nectar, oats, and fruit) with a moderate amount of protein per serving, Zing bars deliver a continuous source of energy without spiking blood sugar. I find them to be a happy medium between a fast-acting sports gel and a dense protein bar. Best of all, Zing bars’ soft, chewy texture make them easy to break apart and eat while riding." Ummmm, YESS!
