March 10, 2014 at 7:31 am

Ocean’s Halos started as “Four Dads on a Mission” to make a healthier snack. They were “2 dads who grew up on potato chips and 2 who grew up on seaweed.” They wondered, “what if we could make a chip that’s tasty and good for you at the same time?” After many trials and errors, they launched Ocean’s Halos Seaweed Chips which are now available in…

As it has been said for centuries, “necessity is the mother of invention.” When triathlete Katie Hunter was suffering from unexplained knee pain, she looked for a way to eat whole foods with the most anti-inflammatory properties she could find.

Another Great Day at Cycle for Survival + Be My Valentine (Giveaway)

February 9, 2014 at 6:29 am

On Friday, I mentioned that I was participating in Cycle for Survival for the third year in a row. Cycle for Survival is “the high-energy indoor team cycling event that provides a tangible way to beat rare cancers.” Why do I ride? 50% of people with cancer are battling a “rare cancer.” Rare cancers include brain, pancreatic, cervical, sarcoma, stomach, pediatric and countless others. Unfortunately, I…

(My) First On the Go Snack Reviews (+Giveaways) of 2014!

February 6, 2014 at 7:35 am

As I have said before, eating healthy on the go can be a big challenge. It is so easy to grab whatever is around. I find this is especially true for airplane flights/airports and long work meetings. And now, since I eliminated gluten and dairy (for the most part) healthy snacks can be even tougher to find on the go. I was fortunate to try some…
