No Cow. No Bull. No Whey!

Putting fitness first can be quite a struggle at times and require a lot of commitment.  I recently decided that I had to seriously make health and fitness a priority if I wanted to reach my fitness goal.  Getting started can actually be the hardest step you take and those first few weeks of struggle can be enough to make a lot of people call it quits.  Researchers say that it takes 21 days to turn anything into a habit, so if you can make through the first 21 days then everything afterwards is easy peasy, right?  Not exactly.  It can still be hard at times but it does get easier and can become more of a habit making it less easy to stray.  Also, when you take a look at how far you’ve come, why would you want to undo any of your hard work?  I was in the market for some protein bars to go along with my fitness plan.  I remember the last time I had one, it was probably 8 years ago and I remember distinctly throwing the whole box of bars out for its unappetizing taste.  Given that was 8 years ago, I decided to give it another shot.  That’s when I came across “No Cow” protein bars.  Depending on the flavour, they have up to 22 grams of protein per serving and only 1 gram of sugar.  Even better is that they are vegan, non-dairy, non-GMO and gluten free,  perfect for the lactose intolerant me.  What’s interesting about this company is that it was founded by Daniel Katz when he was just 18 years old in attempt to solve the problem of lack of vegan protein bars with no added dairy.  I love that they don’t come in the usual boring flavours . . . vanilla . . . chocolate . . . You have flavours like Lemon Meringue Pie, Blueberry Cobbler, and Mint Chocolate Chip to try.  Do they pass the taste test?  Yes!  After trying these bars, my previous experience of a dry, tasteless protein bar is now a distant old memory.  I’ll be adding GNC to my shopping list for more “No Cow” bars.
