A lot of what I have been doing lately has been trial and error. And while it is still an ongoing-work-in-progress - I have discovered a few yummy things that are tummy friendly!
* Vanilla Chai Vega One Shake
Green smoothies have become a very necessary staple in my diet lately, and I am loving Vega's Vanilla Chai flavor. The Vega One Shake has 15g protein, antioxidants, and tummy-loving probiotics - so it has been perfect for me. I have also been adding avocado, spinach, and banana for extra plant power!
* Zico Coconut Water and Honey Maxx
It has been crazy humid in Toronto lately, making me a hot sweaty mess post-run. I know I am losing a ton of electrolytes while I am out logging my kilometers, so I have been looking for tummy-friendly electrolyte replacers.
Honey Maxx has been much easier on my tummy than some of the other brands I have used in the past (*cough, cough, Gatorade*). The natural ingredients and sugars are much easier to ingest on my run. And Zico Coconut water has been perfect post-run. Coconut water has sodium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and as much potassium as a banana! Plus the chocolate flavour is delicious
* Clif Bars
I have been struggling to take in enough calories after my long runs. But my Clif Bars have definitely been helping me refuel. They are sweetened with Brown Rice Syrup which is easy to digest and all of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit in every bar helps me make sure I am getting the right nutrition.
* Fresh Local Fruit
* Solar Raw Kale Chips
Do you have any tummy-friendly snacks you recommend?
