Fuel Your Better

June 12, 2014 — 1 Comment

During the early part of this year, when I first started marathon training, I found myself struggling with proper fueling. Although at that point in time I had just kicked off my perfect oatmeal morning ritual, I had yet to develop a consistent regime for fueling before, during, or after runs.

Sure, I was drinking a reasonable amount of water, but I wasn’t taking any extra measures to replace electrolytes. As things heated up and the marathon rapidly approached, I found myself ending my long runs covered in salt, and feeling dehydrated and spent. Once I reached that point, no amount of water could revive me. Like many, I knew I could and should be fueling better, but I wasn’t taking the necessary strides.

Mardi Gras Mashup

March 2, 2014 — 2 Comments

Whether you are nursing a parade hangover, looking for something to leisurely sip during your Sunday fun day, or perhaps even something that can serve as the perfect recovery drink after logging some weekend miles on foot or bike, these purple and green Mardi Gras inspired smoothies will keep you going strong. If you are in the mood for a subtle burst of berries, Purple-ish ‘Drank’ is light enough to be sipped as a sidekick to your meal, yet nutritionally dense enough to stand alone, or act as a post-workout replenisher. On the other hand, if you are seeking a heavier, energizing boost, Green Powerhouse is packed with greens and peanut butter that will leave you feeling ready to get out there and catch more beads, and maybe even take on the world, or at least the work week ahead. Don’t worry, if you can’t decide between the two, you can always do a little bit of double-fisting. No judgement here.
