CORE Foods Review

Being the runner that I am I'm always looking for new ways to fuel before, during, and after my runs. So I was excited to have the opportunity to try CORE Foods.

These meals are made from raw, organic, whole foods ingredients. You can pronounce every ingredient on the package! Since the ingredients are fresh CORE Foods must be stored in the freezer. When you are ready to eat them you just let it thaw for 10 minutes and it's ready!

The concept behind these meals is simple. You eat one pack and drink 2 glasses of water and that is equivalent to one full bowl of oatmeal! It is supposed to give you 4 hours of stable energy.

My question is always "when do I eat this?" CORE Foods can be consumed 30 minutes before your workout, during endurance workouts (hello long runs), or 10 minutes after a protein shake to fuel muscle recovery after a workout.

I was given three CORE Food Defender Meals to try: Raw Walnut Banana, Raw Almond Raisin, and Raw Cashew Cacao.

Just to let you know...I am NOT a big nut fan. I eat nuts very rarely. So these are not my choice of things to eat. But I did try them and was surprised how good they actually were...nuts and all! My favorite was the Almond Raisin! It seemed to have the most flavor out of them all. They weren't hard but were chewy. You definitely wanted water with them. And they did a great job of keeping me full! You eat it just like you would a bar but you have to remember that it's supposed to be like a bowl of oatmeal. They don't have the sweetness to them that most bars do.

If you like healthy options and love nuts then these are definitely for you! The quality of ingredients and freshness is amazing!

Be sure to check out CORE Foods on their website, Facebook, and Twitter!

QOTD: Have you tried CORE Foods? Would you like to?

I received this product free to review through FitApproach and CORE Foods. I received no other compensation. All opinions in the above post are mine and mine alone!
