Horse-ivals!

Have you ever run horse-ivals? My dear friend Tracy is visiting her once-home of Boulder this week, and she had the opportunity to run – alongside and atop – a stunning and powerful pony. Apparently – and as evidenced by the image above – when running alongside a horse the creature gets quickly in tune […]

I’m curious how many of you grew up eating one of my favorite snacks, popcorn topped with nutritional yeast? If you’re a stranger to nutritional yeast, your gag reflex may have just kicked in, but trust me, it’s 100% delicious! The yellow flaky yeast tastes a bit like parmesan cheese, yet it’s loaded with Vitamin […]

More Than Just Dessert

You know a sports nutrition product is good when you crave it outside of sport. For example, right this moment, sitting at my computer buried deep in writing assignments, I can think of nothing but Chocolate Raspberry Roctane. Earlier today I went for an hour and a half mountain bike ride – just long enough […]

Then last week, I visited a different friend who adds cherries to her […]
