Why Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars? 

Posted on in Health + Lifestyle, Kids + Family, Sports + Training by The Vegan Cyclist

My journey to becoming plant based started many years ago.  After watching several documentaries with my pregnant wife I decided a radical change was needed in our diet.  We cut out all fast food, bought organic free-range meat and started eating a lot more fruit and vegetables.  We started cooking every meal at home and really became conscious of the ingredients in the food we bought.  We tried to live by Michael Pollan's quote, "eat whatever you want as long as you cook it yourself."

Fast forward about three years and we took another jump into our diet, going vegan.  We just wanted to live as healthy and happy as we could and we felt that cutting out all animal products would be the solution.  Once you get the hang of cutting out all animal products it’s a pretty simple lifestyle to live.  However, the hardest part is food for on the go, especially being a cyclist. There are many times where I am on a long bike ride and need something to give me energy and Nature's Bakery Fig Bars are the perfect thing.  The ingredient list is short, simple, and you know what it is in it. Making energy bars at home is time consuming and Nature's Bakery allows us to have a quick snack without having to spend a lot more extra time in the kitchen.

Another plus is that my five year old son loves them.  As a growing boy he is always hungry.  And so we are always cooking or making him a plate of fruit to snack on.  It’s nice to have a quick snack that he loves, and that is perfect for school.  Nature's Bakery Fig Bars are an inexpensive way and a simple way to enjoy a quick Vegan snack.

I am no one special, just an ordinary dude that strives to be the best version of myself. I am currently 30 years old, a husband to an amazing wife, a father to an amazing boy, and a proud puppy papa to two toy breed dogs. I live in the foothills of California and love it here, this is truly where I wish to live out my days.I started cycling as a cross training activity for Brazilian jiu-jitsu back in 2010 but it quickly took over my life as I fell deeper into the crazy sport of cycling. I am a cat 2 NCNCA racer, which took me 3 years to reach. As for being vegan, it has been a 10 year journey into health after eating fast food 3 times a day, EVERYDAY.I am not an activist, I don’t think anyone is horrible for eating meat or just living a life different than mine. I simply want to show you, the viewer, the subscriber, the fan, that there is another way to live life. If you think it looks cool, then try it. If not, eat meat while watching my videos, I am not here to force change, change will come if you want it.
