Get ready for the most awesome giveaway ever – CLIF Organic Energy Food (#realfoodathlete)!
I’ve struggled big time with fueling on my latest marathons. I can’t seem to find one product that works. Running is the one time I try to ignore my attempt at avoiding processed foods and ingredients I do not recognize. Most fuel out there uses really big words in the ingredient list and I try to convince myself that it’s good for my running. You can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon CLIF Organic Energy Food at the New York Running Company right before the Brooklyn Half Marathon (my review original review of the product is here).
CLIF Organic Energy Food is crafted to meet the nutritional needs of endurance athletes with organic, real-food ingredients in a convenient, resealable pouch. It is inspired by the home recipes of Team CLIF Bar athletes, including world-class ultra runner Scott Jurek (P.S. I read his book Eat and Run and it’s very inspiring), each pouch is made from real food ingredients in delicious sweet or savory flavors.
Each recipe contains Certified USDA organic ingredients and is designed to capture the desire of athletes who want their sports nutrition to look and taste like the food they make at home (that’s totally me!). For example, the organic bananas in Banana Mango with Coconut provide both glucose and fructose for energy, while organic sunflower seed butter in Pizza Margherita delivers some fat and protein for longer-duration training and racing.
CLIF Organic Energy Food sweet recipes are crafted for activities of one hour or more, while savory recipes also include small amounts of protein and fat beneficial for activities lasting two hours or longer. Team CLIF Bar athletes report that savory flavors help satisfy physiological cravings for electrolytes as well as emotional cravings for salty, comfort food and real food textures on-the-go.
Each recipe is gluten-free and does not contain partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or synthetic preservatives. All recipes source ingredients that are not genetically engineered.
Now for the giveaway! Two readers will win one of each flavor (for a total of 4) – Savory: Pizza Margherita and Sweet Potato with Sea Salt; Sweet: Banana Mango with Coconut and Banana Beet with Ginger.
Enter by leaving me a comment below, following me on Twitter, and/or sharing this giveaway with your followers on Twitter (all entries will be verified). The giveaway is open to all readers in the U.S. and will end on Friday, July 3, 2015 midnight EDT. Prizes cannot be shipped to P.O. boxes or outside the contiguous U.S. Winners will be chosen at random via Rafflecopter.com and are based on the number of entries received.

I’ve been working on trying out different foods to fuel with now that I’ve been running more. These sound pretty good, I will have to try them out.
