GRIT - The Perfect Protein Snack

$18,060

248

Delicious, crunchy, chocolatey bites with 40g of protein!

GRIT is a high protein snack made from gourmet cacao beans, olive oil, pea protein and superfoods rolled into crunchy bite-sized pieces of yum!  😋   

Unlike protein bars that are chewy & sticky, GRIT is a healthy snack that's actually satisfying to eat.

    "They taste like healthy cocoa puffs covered in rich dark chocolate!" - Kat Koenemann (Actually many people say that, but she was the first  😄)

GRIT is delicious but what makes it better than protein bars?

GRIT is:

  • High Protein
  • Keto
  • 100% Plant-Based 🌿
  • Low in sugar and total carbohydrates
  • Paleo-friendly
  • Only Natural Ingredients
  • Rich in Antioxidants
  • Rich in Curcuminoids (anti-inflammatories from turmeric) 

GRIT contains no:

  • Dairy or Animal Products of any kind
  • Gluten
  • Soy
  • Grains or Nuts
  • Artificial Ingredients or Sugar Alcohols
  • Chemical Preservatives

Have you noticed nearly all protein bars contain more carbs and sugar than protein?  😒 

* All values represent 1 package worth of nutrients.

GRIT contains more protein per gram than other protein snacks on the market.

GRIT's ingredients make it one of the most nutrient-dense snacks available.

Jabari Martin (that's me 😃) — creator of GRIT

As a former college athlete & nutritionist, I created GRIT because as athletes we need:

  •  protein for our muscles*
  •  healthy fats for sustained energy**
  •  and antioxidants and anti-inflammatories for our health & well-being***

* A bag of GRIT contains 40g of highly bio-available protein...

** ... heart-healthy fats from Extra Virgin Olive oil & MCT oil from coconuts...

*** ... over 200mg of antioxidants from naturally-occurring Vitamin E, theobromine, selenium & polyphenols.

This project was born out of helping design meals for Shaun Livingston of the Golden Gate Warriors.  

14 year NBA veteran & 3-time champion, Shaun Livingston of the Golden State Warriors.

During this time, I learned nutrition isn't just about what you eat - it's also about what you don't put into your body.

So I've spent all of 2018 developing the perfect protein snack - to fuel your workdays and your workouts.

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

Risks & challenges here are minimal. GRIT is already in production and can be bought at several gyms and stores in the Bay Area. I'm the CEO, the website coder, the salesperson, the delivery driver and the chef - I spend 4 nights / week making GRIT in a commercial kitchen. I've got this handled! 😎

That being said, if challenges arise I'll be completely transparent and keep everyone updated. In addition to this Kickstarter page, be sure to follow me at instagram.com/gritsuperfoods for updates, giveaways and nutrition & fitness tips!

Thanks again for your support! 😊🙏
