Warmer weather, longer days, and a calendar FULL or sporting events, races, new training programs, outdoor activities, and more! Phew, SPRING has SPRUNG and so has our activity levels.

Yum! I’ve been running on bananas and larabars lately but should probably make my own bites instead of buying. A grain free granola has been on my list forever too!
Have you tried making your own gummies yet? I love those for running!
Spring really has sprung and I am always on the lookout for some easy, whole-food snacks to keep in the house. Love this list and all of the great ideas!
Oh my goodness, so many great options! I wish you could make me and the family a weekly package of various healthy energy options! I have started working full time and there is just no time…..
