Post Workout: Healthy Snack Bar

GoMarco bars
Sweaty from working out in the sizzlin’ summer…you worked too hard to get that hot beach bod and need to energize while maintaining fit and healthy…then you’ve got to try this snack for in-between meals or after a workout. @PrawdaDC, the newest Barre instructor, Jen, shared these healthy and organic snack bars–one is granola and coconut and the other banana and almond butter at http://www.gomacro.com. Wow, the granola/coconut is my fave! Just go ahead and take small bites even though you’ll want to devour the whole bar! Go follow @PrawdaDC on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more updates or contact them directly for Pilates and Barre sessions! Counting down to that next long holiday weekend, Labor Day. There’s still enough time to tone-up or lose a few pounds. Enjoy the bar and Barre!
