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: 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 [...]

Update: ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple Bars

Last week I wrote about the new ZonePerfect bars that I found at Target with the “gluten-free” label on them. I sent an email asking about oats to ensure that they were gluten-free and to see which certification company Abbott was using.

This is the response I received:

Hello Kim,

I just wanted to [...]

ZonePerfect Debuts Gluten-Free Protein Bars

While you are reading this post, I am out finishing my last long run before my upcoming half marathons!  After my 12 miles today, I will be in taper mode.  Some people love taper, others hate it.  I believe that I am in the latter group.  The purpose of tapering is to allow your [...]
