As a student and intern, I know the importance of always having safe food on hand to avoid situations when I am stuck without a safe snack. Usually I always have a Go Macro bar (or two) in my backpack at all times, and love them for their clean ingredients, reduced-sugar recipes, and high amounts of plant-based protein. These aren’t your typical bars that are candy disguised as health food- no, these have real substance.
That’s why I was super excited to see their new line of bars at my local Whole Foods Market. Called Thrive, these have the same short ingredient lists and plant-protein content, but are infused with ancient seeds and superfoods. Non-GMO, gluten-free, organic, and vegan, these are sure to please kids of all ages, and are an easy, delicious solution to your afternoon snack dilemmas.
The Thrive bars are a bit smaller than Go Macro’s standard bars, and come in at 190 calories and about 7-8 grams of protein per serving. They are more textured than the regular macrobars, and you can see the nuts and seeds that make up each bar. Additionally, these bars are certified raw and clean, which means their short ingredient lists are crafted with care to keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out.

Although I think I prefer Go Macro’s original bars to these new ones, I like that the company launched these bars to bring more healthy, gluten-free options to the protein bar aisle. Made with real ingredients, and friendly for people with many food restrictions, these are perfect for stashing in purses, lunch boxes, or desk drawers for a handy snack.
