Boasting seed butter, dried fruits and more, a new health bar is finding fans at gyms.
If you are a member of Leap Fitness or Score Gym, you woulda��ve seen small bags full of dark, nutty treats at the reception these past few days. Hand made by Namrata Goyal, the CEO of NGI (Namrata Goyal Innovations, a company that supplies food ingredients to city hotels), these health bites are all-natural and packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. a�?Ia��m not a nutritionist, so these were created after doing a lot of research online,a�? begins Goyal, adding that she chanced upon the idea while driving to work. a�?I was suddenly very hungry and I had nothing at hand to munch on. I called my nutritionist and she sent over a recipe for a health bar, which Ia��ve adapted to make my Pre-workout Dynamos.a�? With almonds, pumpkin and flax seeds in the mix, these gluten-free snacks get a healthy boost of proteins, dietary fibre and antioxidants with the addition of sunflower seed butter.
a�?Most store-bought health bars have hidden sugars or preservatives. Mine have neither. They have a shelf life of 15 days,a�? shares the 40-year-old, who insists she only uses the best quality products. a�?I source my seed butter from Mumbai, I dry my bananas (for the Nutty Banana Bar) on my terrace and I use Medjool dates as a natural sweetener,a�? she adds. Also on offer are Almond Chocolate Punch (with dark chocolate) and the Omega-3 rich Flax Sesame Date. While Goyal lists out her ingredients and its benefits on the packaging, she does not highlight the caloriesa��because she feels eating an extra bar will not make a difference when they contain whata��s good for the body. She is also open to customising the bars.
