Sponsored: The Sweetest Part of My Workout Routine

zing 2

While I ran a half-marathon last year with very little training, this year I’m trying to actually put some effort into it. I joined Fleet Feet Raleigh’s half-marathon training program which is *gasp* actually making me like running. I’ve also been working some new snacks into my routine – and this one is amaZING.

With running between four and five miles five times a week, my muscles have felt pretty out of it. I also made the brilliant decision to quit eating meat last month, so my body’s lacking a lot of the protein it’s used to. I’ve been loading up on tofu and protein bars, but also discovered the Yogi Tea Green Tea Muscle Recovery. On its own – eh, it’s ok. But when you add Born Sweet® Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener, it’s suddenly a whole new experience. The flavor is sweet and doesn’t have a funny aftertaste. Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener comes in small packets that make them easy to toss into your bag in the morning before work and sprinkle into your tea during the day. Sprinkle it into your coffee, teas, smoothies, over fruit and other favorite foods and beverages. No funny aftertaste and zero calories?! Can’t go wrong.

I haven’t given up my sweet treats either. I’ve replaced my regular ice cream with frozen bananas. I’ve been experimenting with methods of making them taste the most like ice cream. I recommend slicing them, then freezing, then mashing in a bowl. Then, toss in some chocolate chips, drench with lime juice, and then sprinkle on Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener. You’d never know you’re saving at least two hundred calories a bowl. (Now if I can just figure out how to copy those chocolate chip cookie dough pieces…) Plus, now I don’t feel guilty getting a snack in before I go running later in the day.
