Healthy Breakfast On-The-Go: Better Oats ‘Raw Pure & Simple’ Review

{Famous, Fluffy Banana-raisin Oatmeal}

It’s no secret that I love oatmeal. In fact, it’s more like a very widely known fact that I broadcast to the entire world on a daily basis. Before I was challenged to go without it for a week, I ate it for breakfast almost everyday, even when I was on-the-go.

After surviving that oatmeal-less week, my oatmeal consumption has lessened quite a bit. But that doesn’t mean I’ve eliminated it from my life completely, that would just be absurd. The fact of the matter is, that it still makes for a great breakfast you can carry out the door with you.

If I have early morning sessions and need to pack an on-the-go breakfast, sometimes I’ll prep a jar of overnight oats the night before. I do that simply by preparing my oatmeal the same way I would on a regular morning, except I prepare it in a jar, and stash it in the fridge overnight instead of heating it up right away. This is super convenient because instead of packing all of the individual ingredients needed to make my oatmeal (and I use a lot of stuff!), in the morning I just grab the jar, toss it in my bag, and when I’m ready for breakfast I just throw it in the microwave and eat.

However, at Food Fete, I was introduced to Better Oats, whose sampling station I was obviously immediately attracted to (hello, they have the word oats in their name!), and they just so happened to help me re-think the way I’ve been thinking about prepping oats for on-the-go.

I Tried a New Exercise: Dance Class with Vanessa Vassallo

This post is part of the four-part series “Finding the Fun in Fitness with Reebok.”

Here’s my number one piece of fitness advice to you this week: if you’ve been wanting to try some new exercise class or studio, but have been putting it off because you are scared to be the “newbie,” or terrified of embarrassing yourself, let go of all of those excuses and just do it!

That’s the approach that I took when I finally decided to sign up for the dance class with professional dancer and Reebok rand ambassador Vanessa Vassalo at the Reebok Women’s Fitness and Lifestyle Event last month. And guess what? I didn’t die of embarrassment. (I just slightly suffered :P)

Confessions of a Tea Lover

I drink a lot of tea. At least 2-3 cups a day. Usually after breakfast, always after a long run, and most nights after dinner. Tea contains tons of antioxidants, is great for our digestive systems, and depending on the blend, can even help promote healthy functioning of certain organs.

Since I love tea soooo much, and I consider it a part of my health and fitness routine just as much as I do running or Yoga, today I want to share some of my favorite tea blends from TheĀ Republic of Tea. It was their Red Velvet Chocolate blend that caught my attention and drew me right to their sample station atĀ Food Fete. Just one sip and I was sold.

Be A Kind Runner

The running community is made up of some of the kindest, most charitable people I know. Whether it’s cheering fellow runners on at a race or running to raise money for a good cause, I can’t think of a time when any runner I know wasn’t willing to lend a helping hand.

Today, KindRunner.com, a brand that completely embodies the giving spirit of the running community, has launched their site for the very first time. Two weeks ago I gave you all a sneak peek into what they’ll be doing and announced that I’ll be partnering with them as a Kind Runner Ambassador!

Now that their site is live and ready for you to take over, I want to give you guys all of the good details about how awesome this program is going to be.
