With my first marathon completed (February 19th 2012) and almost a full year of my healthy hair care journey acheived (May 2012)...my goals now are to stay vegan, stay running, and continue forward. I can already see ultramarathons and trail marathons in my future. Plus lots more interesting vegan and hair experiments. So I hope you continue to stay with me and join in. You all help to keep me honest.
Here we are again with odds and ends that I've used over and over again and love in October. I can't believe it's already been a month since my last post. But go check it out if you haven't already!
OK, let's get started.
Smoothies! I already told you guys how much I love these (and gave you some recipes). But I had to reiterate that these are delicious!
Technically, I haven't actually used this yet but I've been wanting one for a LONG time. So I included it anyway. I have the fresh popcorn kernels and everything all ready to pop!
These I love because they are perfect right before a run. I usually eat half a bar, run and then have my normal breakfast after. As I said in this post, I'm trying to get better at fueling my runs.
From the same company. These are less filling but just as good.
Excuse the half-eaten bar!
My favorites after the original Cliff Bars. I have these when I'm craving something sweet. It's all-natural, totally organic, and only 180 calories! This is my favorite flavor but I've tried the white chocolate macadamia nut (not a fan) and the blueberry crisp.
I found a protein treatment! You read all about it in Week 21 Hair so check out that post to read my review.
Love these vitamins! It's so sad that I have to stop taking them once I start my vegan diet challenge! I wonder if there are vegan vitamins? For highly active women I really do recommend them.
Trail mix is the best invention. I take some everyday for snack at work. I buy the nuts in bulk from Whole Foods (about half a pound for each type of nut). Then I mix them all together in a big plastic bag. I pour it in this convenient container and tie the rest up. I also like to add some raisins.
These will be invaluable for the next six months! It's a simple way to add some protein and flavor to any dish. Plus, they are salt-free.
This may seem silly but I couldn't live without this mug. I take it to work every morning filled to the brim with green tea! It is FREEZING where I work and this helps me "grin and bear it."
Lastly, my local Farmer's Market. Again, you already know how much I love it but I had to add it to October's Things I'm Loving.
