Tapering & Snacking and a Giveaway GFree Connect


11 Days until marathon day, the cough is back full force so I am being smart, no spin this morning and slept in until 6:15. Sad, but that is late for me. With this lack of working out and just getting out of peak mileage I need to remind myself to lay off the snacking when I'm not truly hungry. When I am in 60+ mpw training plus 3 hours spin and 3 hours strength a week I am  hungry to snack all the time and think I get in this habit even when I'm not hungry. Anyone else get in the snack habit like this? The past few day shave been crazy with writing my final paper and I need a trip to the grocery store. Granola ingredients are gone, fruit is minimal, carrots are the only vegetable...help! Luckily I have some healthy options remaining but time to stock up.


Last month I had the chance to try GFree Connect after winning another blogger's giveaway. When the packaged arrived it felt like Christmas! O and I ripped through the bag in excitement, checking out all the fun snacks, mixes and food samples. And coupons! She has not stopped talking about the ice cream cones!




GFConnect sends three Care Packs per year (once very four months); Feb 1, June 1 and Oct 1, its an easy opt out pay as you go program.  Cost is $19.99 + SH for the intro Care pack, and $29.99+ SH for all subsequent Care Packs.  Market value of over $110. I couldn’t believe all that was in the package! The price is great and what better way to try this huge variety and then turn around and bring the coupons to purchase.

Anyone who is eating gluten free has the fear of trying new foods, they cost a lot and the last thing you want is to waste money on something that you won't like. Do you see the variety above? Great brands, great foods and all safe and mostly healthy options!

  8. I am a gluten free runner (not by choice, my stomach hates me) and everyday I figure out more of my favorite foods are taken away from me :( I am allergic to potatoes too and potato starch is one of the key ingredients in a lot of gluten free stuff. It's hard to find anything I can eat!
