Barnana-What a Concept!
I tried a great new product today for the first time, during a nice, long ride yesterday and I felt compelled to share it with you!
I was shopping at Whole Foods not too long ago when I came across a woman who was giving out samples of some kind. I typically decline offers for these freebies, for no other reason that they’re typically something I wouldn’t eat as part of my Paleo regime.
“Would you like to try a Barnana sample?”, she asked?
I thanked her but politely declined, explain I had some food allergies and wouldn’t likely be able to eat what she was offering. I picked up a bag to double check and sure enough, I saw soy lecithin, tapioca, food glaze and gum arabic amongst the ingredients.
She then asked me to have a look at the other flavor- plain banana. I was happily surprised to see it contained…nothing other than organic banana!
Non GMO, organic and raw… sounded perfect!
I bought a small bag and was thrilled with the taste, flavor and portability making it the perfect source of high glycemic carbohydrate to take along on an off-season training ride or run.
They’d also be great to have as part of an in-a-pinch snack when eaten with some raw nuts to lower the glycemic load, kept in the car, the office drawer or your gym bag.
