TRIB3 Games: Shed's Plant-Based Energy Bars
On Sunday 30th September, some of the city’s bravest people will take on the ultimate workout competition. The TRIB3 Games offers participants the opportunity to put their fitness to the test in a broad range of activities and challenges. Of course, those looking to succeed, need to ensure that they fuel up before the big event.
At Shed, we’re excited to be a part of the day’s activities and will be providing Sheffield’s finest with some Plant-Based Raw Energy Bars to keep them going. The nutrition-packed bars will sport oats, dates, bananas, cranberries, dried apples, coconut oil, almond butter, and cocoa nibs. It’s a formidable combination. Let’s take a quick look at some of the awesome health benefits these bars offer the event’s competitors.
* Slow release energy
Have you ever wondered why oats are such a popular breakfast choice? It’s no great coincidence. Aside from offering an effective form of slow-release energy, oats have a well-balanced nutritional composition. Including this simple ingredient in your day-to-day diet could be a step towards improving your overall wellness.
In fact, a recent scientific review into the matter concluded that oats offer both good amino acids and high-quality protein. It’s no secret that the body needs protein to repair and grow muscle which is often essential after a bout of extreme exercise. Ensuring that you give your body what it needs to improve your energy levels and keep you moving.
* Prevent cramping and muscle pain
Whenever you take part in a physically demanding challenge, such as the TRIB3 Games, there’s one major thing that could hold you back. As you start to get active, it might not be your energy levels that let you down, but fatigue and muscular aches and pains. A smart way to combat this issue is to consider what you eat before you get started.
Believe it or not, eating a banana, or a product which includes banana such as Shed’s plant-powered bars, could be the way to go. This fruit is rich in potassium, manganese, and healthy carbohydrates. Boosting your potassium level directly before exercise could help to prevent cramping and muscular issues. As though that weren’t enough, the healthy carbohydrates that you get from this fruit will help improve your endurance levels.
* Packs a nutritious punch
As an active and health-conscious person, you already know that maintaining a well-balanced and healthy diet is essential. It’s not merely about satisfying your hunger pangs – you need to make sure that the food you eat is right for your physical needs. In short, fuelling your body with the healthiest and most nutritious food is the only way to go.
Luckily, the Shed plant-powered bars boast a huge amount of nutrition. As dried fruit is one of the key ingredients here, it’s worth taking a moment to consider what it offers. Research suggests that this consuming snack or ingredient is linked to improved overall diet quality as well as lower risks of obesity. Filled with vitamins, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and even more nutrients, the most popular dried fruit options are worth including in your diet.
