THE LOCALS ARE PAINTING MY NAME ON THE ROADS

Effect:

Homebrew (aka, “I’d rather spend the PowerClifGuHammerBar money on new tires”) nutrition working its magic on one of the most miserable stretches of Utah cycling byways around.

Approximately 500 kcal of:

-Amaretto honey bar made of stuff I had lying around my kitchen (250 kcal - I’ll post a recipe someday…maybe).

-Honey (~100kcal)/water mix in an EFS flask spiked with a dash of orange electrolyte replacement powder.

-Gummy bears coated in sea salt (150 kcal - a hint of water gets it to stick)

So, bar replacement, gel replacement, and chew replacement for a fraction of the retail cost of prepackaged food. The honey/bears I’d probably forgo for “real” nutritionals in a race, but the bars are ROCKING! My ultra-endurance runner housemate finds them scrumptious enough for his own consumption.

Ghetto Nutrionals, pt 1. Peanut butter. Two slices of bread. Honey. ESPRESSO GROUNDS.

Side bonus: Actually edible. Nice caffeine bite and smoky aroma lent by the grounds. Nom. Easy to consume on bike with a dash of your favorite ER drink.

Stay tuned for my attempts at making my own bars.
