Female Runners & Anemia

Over the past few years I have had occasional bouts of low ferritin stores and/or anemia.  Historically I don’t do well with iron supplements, so I try to focus on getting my iron from the foods that I eat.  Those with Celiac Disease can be at risk for anemia, in addition to women being at [...]

Review: Nike Legend 2.0 Tight Fit Pants

My friends gave me a gift card to Fleet Feet for my birthday, so I was excited to go shop and find something new and fun!  When I normally shop at Fleet Feet it is because I need something, which isn’t necessarily the same thing as wanting something.  I had my eye on a pair [...]

Simple Steak Salad

I have been participating in some evening exercise classes recently which makes my dinner time later than the rest of the family’s.  I can’t very well eat a full meal and then go run or to an intense exercise class.  I found what works best for me is to fuel before hand with a gluten-free [...]

Winter Running

‘Tis the season to freeze our tails off while running in what feels like the frozen tundra!  BRR!  If you were cold outside last week while you were running, you will really be cold this week!  The temps are dipping into the single digits at night, making those early morning runs super cold.

Often times it is only a few weeks before the frustration sets in because things aren’t going the way we envisioned [...]

Review: Organic Superfood Oat-Based Cereal

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  How often have you heard that?  Probably thousands of times, right?  Well, that’s because it is true!  Our bodies need fuel shortly after rising to “break the fast” that occurs while we sleep.  Choosing foods that are well-balanced will ensure that you will have the energy [...]

Review: New GF NuGo Nutrition Dark Chocolate Bars

Chocolate is one of my favorite foods.  There aren’t many things that I will turn down if they have some kind of chocolate in or on them, gluten-free, of course.  NuGo Nutrition has some of the best protein bars on the market and they just made two more of their Dark Chocolate bars gluten-free!  The [...]

Review: Picky Bars

Picky Bars.  What a great name for a product, right?  I not only love the name, but the front of the package says “It’s freaking science, dude.”  When I first learned of Picky Bars, I knew they would be a product that I would be interested in.  Not only were they gluten- and dairy-free, but [...]
