Delicious Energy

Why did I not try this sooner?  I have never really liked energy bars, gels, and chews.  It’s just that sometimes you can’t just not eat.  I get tired, and crabby, and then unfocused.  That can be down right dangerous on a bike.  I found things I liked: Picky Bars – hazelnut mocha madnessClif gel – mocha or expresso and Clif blocks – margarita all the way! 

I thought I liked them until I discovered REAL FOOD while biking.  Mind blown.

I took one bite and I was in heaven.  It was not just necessary to keep me moving – it made me happy!  Real food made me faster not just because my muscles needed the fuel but because it boosted my morale.

A couple weeks ago I got Feed Zone Portables from the library.
I made two things.  First strawberry and cream mini sandwiches.

Second, baked cheese and eggs with scrap crust from the sandwiches. From start to finish it took two hours and I had more than enough stashed in the freezer.

But really, we all know the best motivating bike fuel is ice cream.
