Secrets of the PRO Peleton… BLISS BARS
Its official MULE BARS and most cycling specific energy bars give me really bad wind and I end up smelling like a old dog with bowel disease. So, in my quest to find a replacement I’ve discovered these little gems from my local hippy shop in Richmond. My problems are two fold, firstly the wind issue and secondly most bars are so big its a real hassle trying to munch your way through one when you are close to passing out from fatigue in the first place. Bliss Bars however solve both those problems in one go. So far the GAS has been kept to a low and although they are very dense they are not much bigger than a box of matches so are easily eaten without feeling full. Made of something called MACA ASHWAGANDHA RAW CHOCOLATE and containing a potent mix of herbs designed to combat stress, fatigue and exhustion these little gems are nearly perfect cycling food and because they are small they dont take up hardly any space in your jersey pocket either. Per 40g bar contains 173kcal, 3.6g Protein, and 20.0g of Carbohydrate and although maybe not perfect for everyone I have found them perfect for me. The ingredients are: Dates, Cashew Butter, Raw Cacao Cacao Butter, Mac, Brown Rice Syrup, Sunflower Oil, Vanilla Pods, Ashwagandha Root, Salt and Green Tea Extract. They are Organic, Vegan with no added sugar, Diary free, Gluten free, Soya free and non GM so they are pretty much super food all round.
Maybe give them a go. They come in at £1 in my local shop
