Follow Up: Nutrition Trickery

Wow! When I quickly posted my little rant yesterday about my scuffin surprise, I had no idea what a controversy it would generate. It’s taken all day for me to get around to it, but I have lots of things to say: For everyone asking if I heard back from Kath, I haven’t yet. If I do, I’ll let you know, but I probably won’t post her response verbatim – I’d be unhappy if someone posted one of my emails on their blog! I’ll just give you the gist, if I hear back. As far as all the Kath haters …

Nutrition trickery

In the last 36 hours, I’ve worked out HARD. Tuesday night, I went for that 4.8 mile hill run. Wednesday morning, I did an intense 45 minutes of heavy strength training. I posted yesterday about how exhausted and hungry I was after all that… so much that I wanted to crawl under my desk and take a nap. But I pushed on, and actually managed to get done with work early – 6pm! This is pretty much unheard of for me when I’m on the road, and I finally faced what other people always ask me about my job: what …

Not my cup of cocoa

This afternoon at work, I was lagging and in need of some type of pick-me-up (low blood sugar? Maybe, I had eaten a light lunch). I went into the break room to grab coffee, and found myself contemplating the hot cocoa packets next to the coffee cups. Normally, I don’t like to drink my calories (I drink my coffee with no sugar and just a touch of skim milk), but I wondered exactly how much I’d be splurging to have a cup of cocoa. The nutrition facts were divided into two sections: one for just the cocoa, and one for …

Kardea Nutrition Bars

A month ago after writing about Lara Bars, I was contacted by Robert of Kardea Nutrition. Robert generously offered to send me a sample of his bars. A few days later, I had a package with not just one but four delicious bars to try! The bars had a smoothed-over texture that tasted good and was nice in my mouth (smooth and satiny yet still heavy and filling). At first I wasn’t a fan of the appearance of the bar, which looked somewhat processed and artificial (interesting, because the bar is 100% natural and not artificial in the least!). I …

RBF Inspiration

I first got inspired by Frayed Laces, who asked if we could do something for 50 days, what would it be? I said that I wanted to try to eat raw vegan for 50 days. However, 50 days is a really long time, and seems like kind of a daunting task! I’ve been trying to eat raw vegan lately, and I’ve been doing pretty well on the vegan front, but not so much on the raw front. It’s really hard to eat raw vegan at restaurants or with friends, and at home, there are just many times when I want …
