Add a Spring Back to Your Step with the April-May Edition RunnerBox and RiderBox
May 12, 2020
On April 1st, The RunnerBox and The RiderBox debuted their April-May ‘Spring Edition’ box and there’s no better time than now to order yours. You don’t need to leave your house, heck, you probably don’t even need to leave your chair. RB’s team of athletes have curated a selection of some of the best sports nutrition and accessories to get subscribers through these tough times and take on spring with special powers. Standing in the grocery store reading labels and trying to decipher which products both taste good and work for you takes a lot of time (and it’s dangerous these days), so skip it and let The RunnerBox and The RiderBox team do the work for you!
Emily Werner, a registered dietitian and competitive cyclist, chose Northerly Oats and Kakookies as her favorite Spring Edition feature. “I love oats. They are extremely versatile and can be used in so many different ways, from breakfast all the way to dinner. Making oatmeal yourself from rolled oats is the healthier way to make the perfect oatmeal blend, without any hidden ingredients” Emily explained. “Oats contain more protein than other grains and are a great source of carbohydrates making them perfect long-lasting fuel for athletes.”
Emily also described her love for Kakookies, “Who doesn’t love any chance to eat cookies? Kakookies are better for you than your standard cookie. Every flavor contains 4g of protein per cookie, and includes healthy fats (specifically omega 3s), found in walnuts and chia seeds which most of us lack in our diets.”
Starting as low as $25 and boasting a retail value of over $72, Here’s a sneak peak of this edition’s featured products:
Northerly Oats showcase the superfood that is Oats. Use these for overnight oats, cookies, a smoothie addition or even as a breadcrumb alternative to your chicken crust. Northerly Oats are a nutrient-dense power-food for athletes, so use your imagination and enjoy the clean, long-lasting energy they provide!
AMP Human PR Lotion has been a favorite with The Runner and RiderBox team for years! PR Lotion combines groundbreaking skin absorption technology with the natural electrolyte bicarb. When applied to working muscles before exercise the bicarb neutralizes lactic acid to allow athletes to push harder and recover faster. Use before training and racing to reach your goals and recovery faster.
Tiger Balm Active Muscle Spray provides soothing pain relief to sore muscles and joints by creating warming and cooling sensations. Tiger Balm Active comes in an easy to apply spray, allowing you to get to those hard to reach places.
Garuka Bars provide subscribers with a mouth-watering, high energy bar combining peanut butter and raw Vermont honey and all wrapped up in a 100% recyclable wrapper. These bars contain protein making them the perfect bar to enjoy post training (and motivation to get there).
Kakookies is an energy bar disguised as a cookie. That’s right, these delicious ‘cookies’ are loaded with superfood ingredients that provide next level nutrition with a delicious cookie taste. Perfect as a healthy ‘treat’ or as a carbohydrate boost during training.
Lesser Evil Organic Himalayan Gold Popcorn provides subscribers with a low-calorie snacking option without compromising the taste. Made with organic coconut oil and a plant-based butter alternative – you’ll feel like you’re enjoying your favorite, buttery movie snack, but without the guilt.
