More and more people are being diagnosed with Celiac Disease each day. In addition to Celiac Disease, there is also Non-Celiac gluten intolerance/gluten-sensitivity. I don’t really care what you call it, if you eat it and it makes you feel bad, don’t eat it. If you are new to the gluten-free diet, please make sure […]
I can’t remember where I first heard about NOW Energy Bars and Snack Bar Manuka Newtons, but I knew that they sounded like something I would like. I was fortunate enough to receive some samples to review and I have fallen in love!

In my quest to find fuel that agrees with my stomach during my runs, I made the switch to Honey Stinger gels. I have tried the chews before, but not the gels. The first one I tried was the classic Chocolate. To be honest, I was not a fan. I didn’t let that deter me, […]
