Clif Bar

I’m so thankful to have forged this working relationship with Clif Bar, in which they keep me in the loop with new products to try. Their generosity exceeds just me, as they want to send TWO of you a bundle of goodies like the pictured stash above!

Here’s what I like about the bars:

  • Certified organic (except the big Clif Bars & Kid’s Protein Z Bars, which are mostly organic)
  • Gluten free
  • They taste good!
  • The ingredients are all plant based and recognizable
  • I can find them at most of my local grocery stores

Electrolyte Packets

  • 90% organic

Protein Packets

  • 70% organic

Here’s what I’d improve:

  • More organic AND raw ingredients
  • Lower sugar content

My Favorite Post-Workout Recipe

(topped with my Lemon Poppyseed protein cookie)

After a long, exhausting workout or run, my body craves replenishment. If you’re anything like me, my hunger doesn’t set in until at least 30 minutes after my workout concludes. Therefore, right after finishing my workout, my body needs primarily hydration with a kick of nutrients–nothing super heavy. I throw these ingredients into a blender for the perfect post-workout smoothie:

-2 Cups of filtered water (I filter my water with a Berkey filter)

-1 Tablespoon of spirulina (a robust, nutrient dense powdered sea plant)

-1/2 scoop of vanilla protein (I use Jay Robb’s vanilla protein)

-1/2 cup of fresh or frozen pineapple (pineapple contains enzymes that minimize bruising and aid in recovery)

Blend, enjoy, replenish!
