Our Marathon Snacker Gift basket provides your favorite runner with healthy snacks for pre-race fuel and post-race recovery.
The healthful fats in nuts, seeds, and flaxseed fight inflammation and muscle soreness--they're also good for your heart and may even boost immunity! We've included flavored almonds, chocolate covered sunflower seeds, and various healthy fruit and nut mix bars. Flax also contains alpha-linolenic acid which may possibly boost endurance!
Carbohydrates are important in providing the body with energy. To provide heart-healthy fiber while meeting carbohydrate needs, we've included Gnu Bars with a whopping 12 grams of fiber.
Hard workouts can cause sore muscles. Rich vitamin C sources may reduce exercise-induced muscle damage, and also may help muscles recover faster after exercising. We include several sources for your marathoner to snack on.
Your favorite marathoner will love to know that combining honey with a protein supplement may boost post-workout recuperation and favor better blood sugar maintenance after exercise. Honey can also be an effective pre-workout energy source that does not induce hypoglycemia and can improve endurance exercise capacity. They'll love the fruit flavored honey sticks drizzled on oatmeal, in tea, on fruit, or as a sweet treat on its own.Ginger
may act as a natural anti-inflammatory and reduce joint and muscle pain; so for after those really tough workouts, we've included a spicy crystallized ginger that's great on its own or in tea.
Perfect pre- or post-race gift! Great for support during training or to celebrate race effort!
