Anyhow, I was recently asked to do a product review for CORE Foods, a non-profit company that creates portable meals. These meals offer the convenience of packaged food, but are made from fresh, raw, locally-grown, organic ingredients. Each package contains four hours of energy and is the equivalent of one full bowl of oatmeal.
I tried three of the Defender Meals, which are high-fiber, vegan meals specifically formulated for toning and weight management. There are three varieties: Raw Almond Raisin, Raw Cashew Cacao, and Raw Walnut Banana.
My thoughts on the product:
- These are truly meals - each bar packs about 400 calories, so they are not really for casual snacking during the day.
- The bars have a really dense consistency. However, I liked this because it made them seem more satisfying and more like actual food.
- The bars are not sweet. Although I was expecting a dessert-like flavor, the lack of sweetness grew on me. Again, it made them seem more like real food.
Would I recommend the product? Absolutely! For anyone who eats a lot of meals on the go, these bars are a great option for a satisfying and nutritious meal.
If you're interested in trying these meals, CORE Foods is currently offering $5 off any order and hosting a giveaway to win a free case of meals worth $40. All you have to do is "Like" them on Facebook!
