Gu Energy: CHOMPS save me every time!
By Dotsie Bausch
I am madly in love with Chomps because they are critical to keeping my blood sugar levels steady for both training and racing. Track training and intense road intervals burns glycogen only, and I only have so much stored in a given day, so Chomps allow me to keep training in a steady, relaxed and fueled state. These little gummy wonders come in a variety of fabulous flavors and are filled to the brim with ingredients you can trust to fuel your body right like Amino Acids for added focus and energy, Vitamin C and E that combat tissue breakdown and sodium and potassium to restore electrolyte balance.
GU Energy Labs has a broad and deep portfolio of performance energy products for any endurance sport. From biking, running and triathlons to tennis, soccer and hockey, GU continues to work with pro and amateur athletes to formulate a suite of products that work together to improve your performance in endurance pursuits.
OK- so I hate packaged food for the most part. Packaged foods don’t come from trees or the ground and I like to keep 90% of my nutrition from said sources. If its packaged, its processed, right? If its in a wrapper, its not fresh, right? ONLY in the case of Bonk Breaker bars, do you have an exception to this rule. These bars are a God send in my view. Until Bonk Breaker bars, i had to make all of the food i would take with me for a day of training. I was not willing to compromise my nutrition for convenience. What i put in my body, is exactly what i will get out and as a professional athlete, if i am serious about my work, i need to put only the best in if i want to expect superior performance. Bonk Breaker bars changed my life. That sounds dramatic, but its true. These bars get packaged fresh out of the oven and they don’t have any preservatives, which means, they do not have a very long shelf life. They are made with gluten free, dairy free vegetarian ingredients you can read and understand! Things like; Organic gluten free oats, honey, flaxseeds, sea salt, rice nectar, almond butter……..YUM! The bars come in 10 tantalizing and delicious flavors like my personal favorites Blueberry Oat and Espresso Chip and I have been campaigning for a new flavor of secret ingredients I cant share with you yet, but the owners Chris and Jason say will be out soon. I better start taste testing.
HD 800 Headphones by Sennheiser – For the Jetsetter in search of Luxury
Getting there is half the fun, but only if you’re donning a pair of cushy, noise-canceling headphones. My experience in world wide travel has utterly convinced me that jet lag is decreased by 80% or more when, especially on flights over 5 hours, when you don’t have to listen to the LOUD Bbbbbbzzzzzzzzzzggggggg the entire flight and I use a lowly pair of Bose headphones. Just imagine what a Sennheiser pair can do. These technological beauties sound more like full-size speakers than any other headphones on the market.
