Re: [RC] snacks that keep you going - Lynne Glazer

Boomi Bars: I bought them at Costco during one of their "roadshows". Haven't found where else they might be sold. The company name is Mount Govardan Products, phone is 800-440-6476.

Flavors I like:
Pineapple ginger
Perfect pumpkin
Pistachio pineapple
Apricot cashew

Actually, I tried them all and like them all, though the almond protein plus is like marzipan and hard to eat w/o a lot of water.

The list that Karen Sullivan put up was *exactly* the kind of foods I like as well, for your survey purposes. The hardes thing about endurance riding is forcing myself to eat before the ride, that early in the morning. Caffeine and protein are required, but coffee is OUT (unless you like getting off to pee early on a cool morning when your mount would prefer otherwise).

My good friend, who knows me so well and must be under instructions from my husband to look after me, brought these great snak bars to our endurance ride. They were called "boomi" bars. ingredients list reads like trail mix, only easier to eat on horse back. Nothing you can't pronounce. Wonderful!! Mostly nuts, honey, dried fruit combos, with a couple of variations that have extra protien. Most "granola" bars are more ceareals and carbs, and low on protien. These seemed to balance dried fruits and honey for a pick-me-up and nuts for longer term energy.

They saved me, and made it possible to keep going. I don't eat well when I exercise. I lose my appetite, but feel like I will pass out if I go even a short time without food or water (I am a whimp, but at least I am learning to manage it!) I highly recommend them. For that matter, you could probably experiment and make some at home.
