Picky Bars and Temps on the Rise!

First of all I want to thank so many of you for the congrats and feedback from my post yesterday!

Picky Bars

A few weeks ago I was sent each flavor of Picky Bars to try!  Yeah, as you all know I am a big fan of bars and new snacks! Picky Bars are designed by athletes and are Dairy and Gluten free and made with natural, organic ingredients with a 4:1 (carb:protein) mix.

Image copyI snacked on one before my short run yesterday and had a full one last weekend before my long run and wow are they AMAZING!  They give a perfect balance and really help fuel your workouts!  They are also great after your long workouts!

There are four flavors of Picky Bars:

All-In Almond: Peanut Free and Vegan

New Flavor: Smooth Caffeinator!

Nutless Wonder: Peanut and Tree Nut Free

Laurens Mega Nuts: the Original Picky Goodness

Picky Bars are great because they are basically a trail mix of fruits, nuts, some honey / agave and a few chocolate chips smashed together.  No artificial ingredients or unnatural ingredients!  They are incredibly tasty!  Want more information?  Check out their story here!

Picky Bars: Its freaking science, dude.

So temps are on the rise over here in Chicago!  Race weather on Sunday is going to be hot!  They are anticipating a high of 90!  Granted it won’t be 90 at the 6:30 start time I know it’s going to be hot!  I need to put thoughts of another PR in the back of my head and just go out and run the race!  Operation hydration starts NOW!

Sara’s in camp this morning so I have the morning to get errands done and some Costco shopping and then we are hitting up the pool and then I’m teaching at the YMCA!

Have a great day!  Is it heating up by you?  Have you ever tried Picky Bars?
Oh and don’t forget that today is the last day for the Salba Smart Chia giveaway!

Disclosure: I received these samples from Picky Bars.   It was my decision to do this review for them and all opinions expressed are on my own.

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Picky Bars. They are my fave and the smooth caffenator is the BEST! They are hard to find so I usually order them online, but my friend who owns a running store has started to stock them too. I am off to Costco as well : ) Enjoy your morning!

  3. I’ve never tried chia, except in the new Chobani Flips blueberry one. I feel like I should though!
