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 […]

Cherry Cheer

I’m utterly in love with dried cherries. Last summer, a friend introduced me to including cherries in salads.

Sweet Dreams with SHEEX

Anyone who struggles with insomnia knows the debilitating challenge of sleep deprivation. Simply put, lack of proper sleep wreaks havoc with both mental and physical functioning. I know this firsthand, having been awakened by an overactive mind at 4:00am and now double-checking to be sure I’m typing cohesive sentences! That’s why I believe the women […]
