Recently, I was out on a run with a friend and we started talking about food. Nothing new since that seems to be the #1 topic of most group runs. It’s the natural thing to do.
Running = hunger
We discussed how much food is fuel for performance. When your tank is running low, you are running low. You go through these crazy emotions of feeling like you can’t take one.more.step or that you are completely DONE. Sure, you need to be doing all the other things to increase your performance, but when your nutrition is off, it’s like running in quick sand.
That being said, I’m always ready for a snack. Three squares don’t work for me.
There are tons of packaged snack options out there. But you know what caught my eye when I was sent a package of Foodie Fuel? This -> Why just snack when you can fuel?
Food is fuel. Your body runs best on pure, whole, natural food. I try to pick that option as much as I can but sometimes you need convenience in a bag.
Foodie Fuel is a great healthy option to have on hand for the whole family to enjoy. It’s an organic snack that’s gluten free, non-GMO, low-glycemic, vegan and even Paleo friendly. So you may be wondering – what’s in it? They are made with ingredients like sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, coconut and other natural occurring pre-biotic fiber, detoxifying anti-oxidants, essential vitamins and alkaline minerals.
Filled with fiber and all essential amino acids to be a complete protein, you feel satisfied longer with no hangries between meals. There’s a nice crunch with a tad bit of sweetness. Foodie Fuel comes in four flavors: Coconut Vanilla, Butter Toffee, Cinnamon Ginger, and Swiss Chocolate.
I like to enjoy Foodie Fuel straight out of the bag or over a bowl of my favorite Greek yogurt.
