When do I get to eat? Once you sign up for motherhood, you can kiss nice, leisurely meals goodbye, unless you have someone else watching the kids!
That is why I am always on the lookout for healthy, convenient meals and snacks that fit into our current lifestyle. I was recently introduced to Fuel For Fire Fruit + Protein Smoothies, which come in super convenient pouches. They are a great option for a quick snack while you are out-and-about with the kids or as a pre- or post-workout snack between meals.
About Fuel For Fire
Fuel For Fire was founded in 2012 by professional chef, six-time Ironman Triathlete and fellow parent of twins Rob Gilfeather. He wanted to create a convenient snack made from real food that provided natural energy to fuel and recover from his workouts. His mission is to change the way people eat on-the-go by making smart, impactful changes to their daily nutrition that support lifelong, healthy habits.
Facts about Fuel For Fire
- Made with 100% real fruit puree and whey protein isolate that is 99.8% lactose free
- No gluten, soy, nuts, GMOs, fat or added sugar
- Each pack delivers nine essential amino acids in less than 125 calories and contains more protein than one whole egg
- Conveniently packaged into single-serving pouches that come with a built-in straw
- Pouches do not need refrigeration, but taste great when chilled
Fuel for Fire is available in five flavors:
Each coffee pouch has 122 calories, 11 grams of protein and 65 mg of caffeine! Ingredients include banana and coffee extract. I found the coffee flavor to be a little bitter and don’t usually need the added caffeine due to the time of day I would be needing a snack, so this was not my favorite.
The strawberry banana pouch has 105 calories and 12 grams of protein. I loved this flavor.
The Banana Cocoa pouch has 115 calories and 10 grams of protein. Another great flavor in my book.
Sweet Potato Apple
The Sweet Potato Apple pouch has the least number of calories at 93 calories and 10 grams of protein. Unlike the other pouches, this one included cinnamon as an added spice. I personally thought that the cinnamon flavor was overwhelming and for some reason, I thought the consistency was a little weird compared to the other flavors. This was my least favorite flavor.
Tropical *my pick*
The Tropical pouch has 116 calories and 10 grams of protein and included three fruits – pineapple, banana and mango. This was by far my favorite flavor. It was light, refreshing and delicious!
While I was not a fan of each and every flavor, Fuel For Fire made a great impression on me. I used them as pre-, during, or post-workout snacks to get me through to the next mealtime, and I found them to be perfect for this purpose. I also preferred them chilled, but run temperature worked better when we were on-the-go.
