Vegan s’mores for all!

For those of you who don’t know, I eat mostly vegan. I am not a strict vegan, and more importantly I am not vegan for an ethical reason or because I am making a choice not to eat animals. Several years ago, I discovered I was VERY lactose intolerant. I learned from reading food nutrition labels that anything labeled “vegan” was safe for me to eat since it doesn’t have dairy. In discovering alternatives to cheese and milk, I discovered many other yummy vegan options. I started eating more vegan and feeling better gut-wise.

I used to have an issue with a lot of endurance nutrition products, but lately it seems like many of the big companies are making the move to vegan, recognizing that dairy products during endurance events are a no-no for everyone.

Long story short…I tried a GU for the first time in a couple of years. And now I have a new favorite thing.

I LOVE s’mores and this totally hit the spot. Although, I usually make s’mores with Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups. I mean…is there any better way? GU…make peanut butter s’mores flavored gels, m’kay?

Big exciting news! I got up early before work and ran on BOTH Thursday and Friday. I can’t even tell you the last time that happened. Now, let’s just hope I can continue this 5-running-days-a-week trend.

We head to Pitt State this weekend for Runner Boy’s indoor track nationals races. He’s running the 3200 and the mile. He hasn’t had a good race in a while. Darn race anxiety!

Stay neon!
