Why Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars? 

My journey to becoming plant based started many years ago.  After watching several documentaries with my pregnant wife I decided a radical change was needed in our diet.  We cut out all fast food, bought organic free-range meat and started eating a lot more fruit and vegetables.  We started cooking every meal at home and really became conscious of the ingredients in the food we bought.  We tried to live by Michael Pollan's quote, "eat whatever you want as long as you cook it yourself."

Fast forward about three years and we took another jump into our diet, going vegan.  We just wanted to live as healthy and happy as we could and we felt that cutting out all animal products would be the solution.  Once you get the hang of cutting out all animal products it’s a pretty simple lifestyle to live.  However, the hardest part is food for on the go, especially being a cyclist. There are many times where I am on a long bike ride and need something to give me energy and Nature's Bakery Fig Bars are the perfect thing.  The ingredient list is short, simple, and you know what it is in it. Making energy bars at home is time consuming and Nature's Bakery allows us to have a quick snack without having to spend a lot more extra time in the kitchen.

Another plus is that my five year old son loves them.  As a growing boy he is always hungry.  And so we are always cooking or making him a plate of fruit to snack on.  It’s nice to have a quick snack that he loves, and that is perfect for school.  Nature's Bakery Fig Bars are an inexpensive way and a simple way to enjoy a quick Vegan snack.

Letting Go of a Fitness Misconception

I am on a new adventure these days- the adventure of mommy hood. I had my first child in February and am learning more than I ever thought possible.

Before I had my child, I worked out quite a bit. Even during pregnancy, I was able to keep up with boot camp workouts (I just went 3 days per week instead of 5 and modified the exercises). I am about 7 weeks postpartum and exercise looks completely different. I am 100% okay with that, but I had to let...

Cranworx World Tour

I knew it would be a tall order, but putting myself in these positions is nothing new. I had been grinding away for six weeks to get my recently repaired shoulder back to fighting shape. Bicep, tendon and labrum had been demolished, so the surgery was well warranted. However, the timeline was stressful. Since the adoption of a big Slopestyle event in the Southern Hemisphere, our "off-season" became pretty non existent. What was a slower time reserved for getting caught up with family and the occasional photo shoot, was replaced with a March event and having to stay on...

My Favorite Playground – KALYMNOS

Coming to Kalymnos as a rock climber is like discovering Nirvana. It's a little island off the coast of mainland Greece and it might have the highest concentration of sport climbing routes anywhere in the world. The style of the rock climbing is varied but often very steep and three-dimensional. Many times I've found myself in an ocean of stalactites sticking out from the rock walls wondering which way to face my body. The broad...

The New Happy Hour: Social Fitness

I heard a term recently that I think is brilliant. It is “social fitness”. You may already be participating it from time to time without even knowing it.

Social fitness is getting together with a friend (or friends) to engage in some form of physical activity together. You are getting social and active at the same time! Perhaps you try a new yoga class, go for a walk in the park, or even coordinate a group game of sand volleyball. In a sense, it is the new happy hour.
