There are some foods that are just so virtuous you feel like you’re adding years on to your life just by eating them. Love Raw bars are one of these foods. They’re organic, unprocessed, nutritionally dense and jam-packed with vitamins and minerals. Pure superfood.
I tried three flavours: Coconut & Chia, Cacao & Maca and Rosehip & Lemon. They reminded me a bit of Nakd bars, the texture is similar but a little crunchier. In terms of ingredients though these bars blow Nakd our of the water. Here’s a bit about what makes their key ingredients so good for you:
ROSEHIP is a great source of Vitamin C, 60% more than citrus fruits. It acts as an antioxidant as it scavenges free radicals that are harmful to all cells in the body. High in Vitamins E & K, it quickens the healing process for skin irritations and bruises.
RAW CACAO is 100% pure and unprocessed. Its full of natural antioxidants, particularly polyphenols (found in berries & oranges) and flavanols (found in red grapes and green tea). Raw cacao neutralise harmful free radicals in your body and promotes your overall health. Its a great mood enhancer.
MACA is an energy boosting supplement hailed as the “Peruvian Ginseng” its benefits are long valued. It plays a traditional role in increasing fertility and is libido boosting in both men and women. It contains amino-acids, protein, vitamins, trace minerals and fibre.
COCONUT is high in manganese which helps you metabolise fat and protein, so it encourages weight loss. It is very rich in dietary fibre, potassium and copper. The fatty acids contribute to healthy glowing skin.
CHIA seeds are composed 60% of Omega-3’s, making them one of the richest plant based sources of these fatty acids. Chia is an anti-inflammatory and prevents cell damage. It’s high protein levels help build and repair muscle cells.
Flavour wise my absolute favourite was rosehip & lemon, it had a great citrus kick and was full of flavour – not your average health food bar taste! I also loved the raw cacao, almost as good as eating chocolate. But not quite, I’m not mad.
All Love Raw bars are 100% Organic, 100% Raw, 100% Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Wheat Free and Soy Free. So if you’re looking for a snack that’s all about the goodness give them a try. They could probably save your life.
