Bitesize gluten free muesli minis in a variety of flavours, the perfect gym time snack.
I have recently joined Virgin Active and have a new lease of life for going to the gym again, surprising what a difference having a nice gym actually makes. With my new job it is easiest for me to go to the gym before work which means super early mornings. However despite the early start I have actually been left feeling very refreshed and energised for the day ahead.
The one thing I have struggled with is what to eat before and after. When I jump out of bed and into my gym clothes I need something really quick to eat before running out of the house. It also needs to be something that is going to give me enough energy to get through an hour of gruelling workout. I had a search around As Nature Intended in Spitalfields and found a selection of muesli minis from Made Good which looked like they would do the job perfectly.
I picked up a box of the chocolate banana flavour for gym the next day. Each box has 4 packets of granola bites so at just over £2 for the box it is a bit on the pricey side for the smallish packet size. However I wasn’t too disappointed as the mini bites within are really great as well as being organic and of course gluten free.
The mixture of the dark chocolate and banana makes these taste sweet, almost dessert like but they also gave me an energy boost which kept me going until lunch. When I’m at home I really enjoy gluten free granola with yoghurt so these are a great way of getting a similar kind of breakfast but on the go.
The chocolate and banana were definitely a winning combo for me but Made Good also do these in other flavours including apple cinnamon and strawberry so I will be keeping my eye out for them next time around.
