Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 15-Ounce Tubs (Pack of 2): Coconut oil is experiencing vogue within the fitness community. Paleo adherents in particular tend to be keen on its use. I love coconut oil, and I use it often. Nutiva is easily my favorite brand (if you read the reviews on Amazon, it would seem that many agree with me about Nutiva’s excellency).

I am an avid cyclist and runner, and without a doubt Honey Stinger products are my favorite energy snacks for training and racing. My seven-year-old daughter loves them too; I have more than once caught her stealing a gel pack out of our pantry. Those who do not think that Honey Stinger is among the best tasting energy gels available undoubtedly like the movie Ishtar. To order, click on the above text link, or on the image. This product is stocked by Amazon, and it is Prime eligible.
Honey Stinger Organic Waffles are right up there with Honey Stinger gel packs for me. They are delicious! I find their texture vastly more pleasing than that of Cliff Bars and the like.

ON’s Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard is one of the highest quality protein powders on the planet. ON’s manufacturing and product sourcing practices are second to none.

I tried Shakeology for the first time in the Spring of 2011. I was excited by its considerable hype, but also quite skeptical for the same reason. My take? It is indeed very healthy, but expensive. Many assume that Shakeology is a “protein shake,” and while it does offer a decent punch of protein at around seventeen grams, it is actually billed as a “meal replacement.” To this end, if it is in fact used to replace a meal, I feel it is a good value. If you are looking for just a protein shake, however, ON’s Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard is a better value, and it offers more protein per serving.
Many rave about the taste of Shakeology; it comes in three flavors—tropical strawberry, green berry, and chocolate. I like all three; I think they taste “natural.” I do not feel, however, that Shakeology sits perched on some “taste cloud” that floats above the ethers of all other powdered drinks.
Bottom line, I like Shakeology. It is not something I eat every day, but I do reach for a pack fairly often. It is a quality product, and it is undeniably healthy. To order, click on the above text link, or on the image. Orders are fulfilled by BeachBody.
