I did it. I subjected myself to ALL the best nutrition bars I could find locally just for you. ūüėČ It wasn’t actually THAT hard, because truth be told (though they’re delightfully tasty) usually nutrition bars aren’t that nutritious. It’s a game — the food industry¬†definitely has some¬†for trickery up their sleeve. It’s SO difficult to be informed with all of the ¬†abundant misconceptions spiraling around us – and they use labels like gluten-free, all-natural, vegan, organic, and about a gazillion others that make us BELIEVE something is ‘healthy.’ And shoot, y’all.

There were many, many days of my life, especially while teaching, that I would eat a couple LUNA bars and thing I was doing a damn fine job. #not Here are the questions I asked while¬†choosing¬†“nutrition” bars to try, but really you can apply these to ANYTHING you pick up in a grocery store!

So, at almost a year and a half into my whole lifestyle reset… I think I have figured out my workout mojo! Here are the 3 must-have¬†I need to get a kickass workout in at… wait for it… 4:30 am. I know, it’s totally gross. I’m really looking forward to going into full-time girlboss life, so I can get up at 5:30. I am a morning person, but 4:30 is a *tad* much. Must-Have #1 My pre-workout.
