Well the day is almost here, #the3day walk that I’ve been “training” for. I use that word loosely because yes I’ve trained but I certainly didn’t follow the suggested training schedule. Now…..I AM SCARED! I’ve done some long walks 11 and 14 miles and normally I do 6-8 miles (which BTW doesn’t even seem long anymore). One thing I’ve noticed is that I need some sort of energy boost during these long walks, we all know that we need to drink plenty of water and eat healthy foods before and after a long workout – but also during. Have you ever heard of Doctor in the Kitchen? No?! Well, you need too! These snacks have saved me, especially during yesterday’s 8 miles in 90 degree weather.
These raw snacks for on the go and really whenever are made by Doctor in the Kitchen – AKA Dr. Alison Levitt MD. These crackers and seed snacks are gluten free, of course – raw, vegan, nut free (which is great for people with allergies) high in fiber, protein and Omega 3′s, made with organic non gmo ingredients. You can purchase the Flackers which is a sprouted flax seed cracker which are great for before or after a long workout served with peanut butter, cream cheese whatever. Or, the Seedsters which are like little nuggets you can just pop in your mouth. These were great because I just took some, placed them in a little reusable baggie and tucked them in my fanny pack – YES, I said fanny pack. I seriously feel like a 60 year old lady in Disney with one of those on…but I can carry a little towel, water, holds my phone and of course those Seedsters. I wonder what you would need if you walked 20 miles for 3 days…huh?
So during my walk, I was felt like I was dragging so I popped some of those in my mouth and kept on going. Gave me lots of NATURAL energy to help me mustard through those last 3 miles. OK, enough about my needs…now these Flackers and Seedsters are also great for kids. They can eat them as a snack or what I love…during practice. I love knowing that I am giving my families foods that are healthy and good.
