Three Things Thursday

Well, I woke up feeling pretty tired this morning, but I still plan to get my 9 miler in today.  It won’t be pretty, but it will happen;)  Luckily it’s a great day for a run weather wise:)  Here are my three things for today:

1.  I bought 3 books the other day that sounded interesting.

20150429_075215-“The Blue Zones Solution” by Dan Buettner

-“Grain Brain” by David Perlmutter

– “Tox-Sick” by Suzanny Somers

The last one I bought on a whim trying to get my Amazon total up enough for free shipping;)  I saw her on a talk show talking about her book and thought it might be interesting.  I will keep you posted on my thoughts.

2.  My youngest son is having his very 1st middle school track meet today and I am so excited!!  He will be running the 100 yard dash and the hurdles!  I can’t wait to watch him run.  I wish I had the running talent he has:)  I plan to video tape him and post it on Instagram if you want to follow along:)  I remember being scared of the hurdles in middle school.  I just couldn’t make myself jump over them.  I love that he enjoys doing hurdles!

3.  The NFL draft starts today! I don’t know if any of you are into watching the draft, but it is so fun to watch the dreams come true for so many athletes:)  I love to watch!

Have you read any of the books above?  Thoughts?  Do you like to watch the draft?

Have a great day and happy running!

Do You Tosi?

I went on a gorgeous hike yesterday and  it really has me chomping at the bit for spring to arrive.  Although it was a bit chilly, the sun came out and the scenery was beautiful.  I feel like I always use the same words to describe hikes;)  I will have to get out my thesaurus!

As I’ve mentioned before, I am currently playing a Dietbet game and tomorrow is my final weigh in.  I’ve been trying to avoid Gluten to see how it makes me feel.  I am also in the middle of reading “Grain Brain” and, although I am not too far in, it is quite interesting so far.  I do notice that when I eat gluten, I feel “foggy” and my body feels much more bloated.  So, I will continue to read more and do some experimenting:)

So, how do these 2 points connect?  When I go hiking, I always try to come up with that perfect snack to eat that will fuel my body in a healthy way.  In the past I have made PBJ’s, crackers, granola bars, etc.  It seems so many things have extra sugar, gluten, and many other things that I prefer to avoid.  I mean, many granola bars are like candy bars with all the sugar they add.  I need something that will give me the fuel I need without all that extra junk.

A couple of weeks ago I was sent a box of Tosi SuperBites.  It was a combo pack with 6 cashew SuperBites and 6 Almond SuperBites.  I thought it could be a great addition to my hiking snacks:)

My favorite part is that these SuperBites have only 6 ingredients:

Organic cashews

Organic Golden Flaxseed

White sesame seeds

Organic Chia Seeds

Organic evaporated cane juice

Sea salt

They come individually wrapped which I love as an “on the go” snack that you can throw in your backpack or purse and head out the door.

Not sure if you can read that tiny print;)

My kids tried them 1st and they loved them which is a good sign;)  Yesterday was my taste test.  I headed out for a 5.8 mile hike up Wallace Falls.  Once I made it to the top, I grabbed my Tosi and it did not disappoint.

Tosi makes other products as well such as:

  • Tosi Probiotics
  • Tosi Digestive Enzymes
  • Tosi Greens
  • Tosi Complete Meal
  • Tosi SuperBites

They are based out of Califonia and so far don’t have any stores local to me.  But, you can purchase their products online.

I will definitely be purchasing more of my favorite “SuperBites”:)

Here is a little more info about Tosi.

I was sent these SuperBites by Tosi free of charge for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
