Day 6: Amrita


20140518-145151.jpg

I just recently discovered Amrita bars at this year’s NYC Green Festival, and I loved them instantly. The bars are vegan, gluten-free, raw, non-GMO, and nut-free. There are currently 6 different flavors which include: Apple cinnamon, apricot strawberry, chocolate maca, cranberry raisin, mango coconut, and pineapple chia. All of the bars are made mostly of sun dried fruits, seeds, and organic brown rice protein. My favorite is the pineapple chia and its ingredients are as follows: dried pineapple, desiccated coconut, date paste, cranberries, Himalayan pink salt, chia seeds, brown rice protein, sunflower seeds, and maple syrup.The bars vary in calories from around 200 to around 300.

Amrita bars are a little harder to find because they are made in small batches in NYC. However, there is a store locator on their website that will guide you to a store closest to you, or you can purchase them online from their website. Their website is amritahealthfoods.com. There is a variety pack on their website that includes one of each flavor and it costs $15 with only $2 shipping. Or you can buy a box of 12 bars of one flavor and that will run you $27, unless you purchase the chocolate maca box which runs $32. I do not know why there is a price difference. As far as I know you cannot purchase individual bars online, but you can in stores.

What do you think of Amrita Bars?
