Nutrition is not something I am exceptional at.  There. I said it.  I am just being honest when I say that given a donut and a salad, I will pretty much always choose the donut.  No shame.  However, when it comes to running that mentality can be a little challenging.

To be totally honest, this post is going up a day later than I planned on on because someone invited me over for pizza.

Anyways.  The point is that I am very aware that I need to eat things that are better for me….I just have a hard time making the time for healthier choices when I am on the go.  But I have also paid the price for my poor eating habits more than once while running.

Enter Food Groove Mission Superfood Bites.  A total game changer for me.

Because of my work schedule, I am usually hungry by the time I get home from work…but if I want to work out or run I don’t really want to eat anything heavy because I know my stomach won’t do well with it.  When I got my sample of the Food Groove Mission Super Food Bites I started to use them for the boost of energy I needed before a workout or run and had great results.  They taste good and have enough calories to give you a little boost of fuel. They were also very easy on my stomach.  Even when I did BBG (which involves a LOT of burpees/crunches/mountain climbers/things that churn up your belly) I never had any hint of an upset stomach.

For someone that has a history of eating all the wrong things before running, this is a seriously big deal.  I wasn’t hungry and I didn’t fee gross during the workout.  Amen. Hallelujah. Praise hands.  All of it.

The perk on the side is that I knew the Food Groove Mission Superfood Bites had ingredients I could actually read and understand and fool good about.  And they are a nutritional powerhouse.  That’s hard to beat right?

All in all, I am a huge fan of the Food Groove Mission Superfood Bites and they are going to become a regular part of my training.  I think they will be great as a mid run pick me up as well (since gels and I do not get along at all).  My current mileage doesn’t require that, but I am hoping to work back up to longer runs and these will definitely be coming along with me!

Have questions about the Food Groove Mission Superfood Bites and my experience with them? I’d love to hear from you!
