Sunday Runday: Running Food Finds

One of my favorite parts of races is getting to try new treats.  For free!  Whether at the expo or after the race, there are always samples.   It's a great way to find something new to add to my routine.  Or just my life in general.  (Although often I have to fight for the goodies with Thatkid, who views every race-bag as  Santa's sack.

So here are a couple of recent finds that I am highly recommending!

Diablo Sodas

I mostly drink water - all day and all night.  And I have a soft spot for LaCroix when I want to mix it up a little.  But I really like these.  My favorite is the mint lemonade.  It reminds me of the Citron Presse we used to drink in high school French class.  French soda is the same concept as most other (Italian) sodas.  It's soda water with syrup.    Nothing fancy, but they do it well.

Mrs. Thinsters Cookie Thins

 I'm much more into soft cookies than crispy cookies.  Crispy cookies might as well be crackers.  So I wasn't expecting much from these cookie thins.  But they're fantastic.  I swear there are enough chips in the chocolate chip versions to quell even the sweetests of sweet tooths.  They are completely addictive.  Once the bag is popped both Thatboy and I couldn't keep our hands out of it.


There are a ton of powdered peanut butters out there.  And I never thought I would be a powdered peanut butter-er, but they are so convenient for smoothies.  And a lot of recipes that call for peanut butter - if you're lazy like me and don't want to have to push the peanut butter off the spoon with your finger.  I especially like the chocolate peanut butter with milk and banana for my morning smoothie!

  1. I didn't think I would love powdered PB either, but I totally do. And I love that it lets me add that PB flavor without adding more calories to whatever it is that I am whipping together.
