1. Monkey Shake from 10:10 Wellness
2. FRS Supplements
4. Free Shoes Reminder!!
1. Monkey Shake
I’ve been a fan of this stuff for a few months now! “Monkey Shake” is a homemade recovery / meal replacement drink from Chris at 10:10 Wellness. It contains rolled oats, whey protein, chia seeds, and RenewPro (another kind of whey protein). Click here to read all about it on the 10:10 site.
You can mix it with other things to make it more delicious. Here’s my personal set-up:
In the name of full disclosure: If you’ve noticed, there’s the “Gate Logo” at the top and bottom of my sidebar. I’m one of Chris’s instigators for 10:10 Wellness. I’m helping spread the word about his company, and I may make a little commission in the process. I’m not in it for any potential money, but more so because Chris and I have been in contact for the last 6 months, and I really like the idea behind his little triathlon company. So go check out 10:10 Wellness, see if there are any deals on things you use, and sign up to be an instigator if you’re intrigued by all of this.
2. FRS Supplements
I was recently sent this package from FRS:
Honestly, I don’t care for the canned drinks that much, but then again, I’m not much on Red Bull or anything else like that. The single-serving packets are good, but they take a while to dissolve (I’ve learned to stir it and let it sit for 5 minutes, and then it’s fine). I think the packets would work well in a blended drink, like in the Monkey (I still need to try that combo - it could be great!).
But, I like the energy chews. They’re about the size of a piece of Bubblicious Gum, and they’re pretty good! They’re filled with antioxidants and all kinds of vitamins for a natural energy boost.
And I REALLY like the liquid concentrate. I’ve used it before workouts, before races, and even before big days remodeling our porch. It DOES give me a bit of a boost, and I really like the taste. The directions say to use 2 ounces of concentrate:
No offense to 10:10 Wellness or FRS, but MixMyGranola is the best idea of these 3! Here’s the low-down: I don’t eat granola. I think the last time I had granola was in high school. But MixMyGranola contacted me and wanted me to try their product. And it’s a GREAT IDEA!
You go on their site. First, you choose from 4 different granola “bases.” Then you choose from 19 different fruits to add (you can choose 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Then you choose from 17 different nuts and seeds. Then you choose from 20 different “extras” like gummi bears, chocolate raisins, candy corn, etc. Finally, you can add a powdered “enhancer” if you’d like. The great thing is that your total cost and nutritional info is constantly updating as you’re adding and subtracting things from your mix! You place your order, and in a few days, a tube arrives in the mail:
