This past few months have been go-go-go for me and it wont get any better until October. On top of the extremely busy professional and personal life I am leading, Gabe and I are also back to marathon training. We have the Rock n Roll New Orleans Half Marathon in January and I am 99% sure I will sign up for the 2015 Goofy Challenge at Disney (back to back consecutive Half & Full Marathon). High Protein snacks are playing a big part in our day to day lives. 
My normal breakfast consists of eating a protein bar or drinking a protein shake. It's quick, easy, filling and nutritious. When I leaned Life Choice Bars (exclusively found at Walmart) had a energy bar with protein, I had to try it out. Not only were the bars great (something rarely found in protein bars), they gave me the boost I need in the morning. I know one thing for certain - these bars will be accompanying me on the bacherlorette cruise next week!
The Life Choice energy bar is the perfect balance of protein, vitamins and minerals to get you through the morning or long workout. 7g of protein, 10g of whole grains, 4g of fiber and 9g of total fat, packed with an energy punch. I wish I had these with me during the 2013 NYC Marathon or the 2014 Dopey Challenge.
Just thinking about the amount of races I did from November 2013-March 2014 makes my head spin. In November, I had the NYC Marathon, runDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon and Womens Half Marathon. In January, I ran the Dopey Challenge, 48.6 miles over 4 days (5K, 10K, Half, Full). In February I ran the runDisney Princess Glass Slipper Challenge, 19.3 miles over 2 days (Half, Full) & the Royal Family 5K the day before the challenge began. Finally in March, I ran the Sarasota Half Marathon relay. I have not ran anything past 3 miles since that day in March but that is about to change now that we are about to start training again.
You can find the Life Choice bars at your local Walmart, in the cereal aisle. I found them very easily at both the Tampa and Port Orange Walmart locations (seen below).
