Sometimes, a small tweak makes a big difference. Run your typical route in the opposite direction, and you notice that you’ve actually been running a slight uphill on a part you swore was flat. (Yay, you!) Throw a slice of lemon in your water, and one gulp makes you feel like you’re coming out of a spa appointment, not vacuuming the family room for the fifth time this week. Tell your kid, “You get to pick dinner tonight,” give him a few guidelines (one veggie, say), and the omnipotent battle of the broccoli quickly becomes non-issue.
Humm Foods first tweaked boring, not-super-nutritious granola bars when they created LÄRABARs delicious bars that contain between five and ten simple, pronounceable ingredients, max. The gluten-free bars are perfect for a diaper bag, a travel bag, a post-run bag, and any other time you need a dose of healthy, yummy calories to keep you humming.
Then they set their sights on granola, which is often junk food hiding under a health-food umbrella. Not so with Renola, their new gluten-free, grain-free, non-GMO granola in scrumptious flavors like Cinnamon Nut, Cocoa Coconut (my fave), and Berry, which is heavy—and heavenly—on blueberries. Although it fits in all the usual places granola does—in yogurt, on ice cream, with milk, by the handful—grain-free, nut-and-seed-packed Renola is definitely not following the usual cereal-aisle crowd.
We’ve got three generous mixed prize packs of LÄRABARs and Renola to send to three lucky winners. In order to enter, please answer this question in the comments below: What small tweak has made a difference in your life or running recently? (And if you can’t think of one, what’s something you’re contemplating?)
