A Dream Come True

Ever since I can remember, Japan has always been a place that I wanted to snowboard. Every year,  I would watch snowboard/ski videos and the POW segments that they showed always blew my mind. It looked like the most fun ever and the lightest snow imaginable. Recently, my dream came true and I went to Niseko, Japan with my brother and our longtime friend Sam. Below are a few highlight photos from the trip that I with captions so you can understand what is going on. =)

This first one is pretty self-explanatory. We just landed in Japan!!!! IT'S HAPPENING! =) Thats my brother Conor on the left and Sam is on the right.

The first two days that we were there happened to be quite warm. No big deal, grab the all mountain boards and go rip some fun laps at the local resorts. This was shot at Niseko-Hirafu.

These little gems were everywhere! This probably just looks like a normal vending machine but there was something a bit awesome about it. They offer cold drinks and WARM! You can get your morning coffee, hot chocolate or even warm soup in a can. Might sound strange but I thought it was pretty neat to get warm drinks out of a vending machine.

Grocery shopping. More difficult then you would think, haha. Since there were no English translations on any of the packaging it was quite the guessing game. Pick whatever looks like it might be good. We nailed it probably 60% of the time. =) Too bad they didn't have any Natures Bakery, cause that would have made things a lot more easy for us.

image6Lucky for us, I brought a huge stash of deliciousness with! This is a shot from the lift at Niseko-Annupuri. That Volcano in the background is called Youtei-Zan. Wherever you are in Niseko, you can always see the Volcano and it never got old. Thanks so much to Natures Bakery for keeping us fueled, especially when we made some bad picks at the grocery store!

We had several days when we went touring in the back country. Here is a shot of me and Sam hiking up and abandoned ski resort that is a 10 minute drive from another resort named Moiwa. We hiked on days when resorts didn't open up the money zones (powder fields) and wanted to get some real pow as opposed to just lapping regular groomed runs. Lots of hours spent hiking, was it worth it?

I would say so! =) This is what I dreamed of. The lightest snow I had ever ridden! This is my heaven, I could do this all day/all year. Snowboarding is when I am truly free, nothing on my mind, truly living in the moment and soaking up every second of it. Two and a half weeks in Japan was the best trip I have taken in a long time. Great culture, amazing snowboarding mixed with great friends and laughs. What more could I ask for? ... TO GO BACK! =)

Thanks for reading and thanks for your continued support Natures Bakery!

Keeping Nutrition Simple

March was National Nutrition Month and while it has just about ended, nutrition is still a very important topic. It always is! New diets are being created on a regular basis, often self-proclaimed as the diet that will get you the body of your dreams.

Let’s be real, EVERY single person has an opinion on nutrition and what to eat versus what not to eat. You would drive yourself crazy trying to follow all the different “rules” out there in regards to nutrition.

And for what?!?!

Nutrition is quite simply...


Do You Eat Anything You Want?

This is a question I’ve been getting asked a lot lately.  The short answer is “No”.  I could probably write a whole book on my nutrition, but for the purpose of this blog, I’ll keep it short and sweet (pun intended?).  There are a few reasons I can’t just eat anything, and there are some good reasons I eat the select items that make up my current diet.

Calorie intake is critical when in peak Ironman training.  There are days when I burn somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000+ calories. I have to replenish those calories, but I am careful...


American Diabetes Month

 

Over 30 million adults and children have diabetes in the United States. An additional 86 million are at risk for developing type-2 diabetes. These stats are not published here to scare you. They are here to make you aware of this growing disease. November is American Diabetes Month after all.

With diabetes on the rise and Thanksgiving this week, you may have a friend or family member at your table following some sort of diabetic-friendly diet. Or perhaps that person is you. This way of eating is not cumbersome or...


How to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

For the average person, weight gain begins in October with the leftover Halloween candy and continues well into the New Year. Your schedule becomes busy with holiday parties, your home is filled with goodies and treats. You are exhausted and can't even imagine exercising, or making a healthy meal.  So how do you keep the weight off and stay on track during the holidays?  Here a few tips to help you do just that!


Simple Health and Fitness: A Life Approach

What sells?  Magazine covers that read “5 minutes to a better body.”  Cookbooks that are titled “eat what you want and lose weight.”  Diet plans that advertise “Take this pill and get fit and firm”.  That sells because it’s an east fix, but the reality of getting the body you’ve dreamed of and the level of health and fitness you desire is simply not a quick fix.

So, with that said, the first thing you need to decide is do you want to achieve this?  I’m going to give you some very good reasons why your answer should be yes.
