The EMPOWER Retreat in Sonoma last weekend was everything and more – 3 days with a phenomenal group of women doing all the sweaty activities, eating delicious foods and drinking wine, and empowering each other to run that extra hill, try that new arm balance and inversion, and to stay strong and positive through all the challenges. I couldn’t have dreamt up a better fitcation than this retreat!
We managed to jam pack the weekend full of all our favorite things: sweat, friends, sunshine, wine, and SNACKS! We were fed extremely well on the ranch (still dreaming of the french toast and biscuits!), but with the amount of exercise we were flying through (5 workouts and that was just on Saturday!) we needed some good old yoga and run fuel.
If you’ve been following my sweaty adventures for some time now, then you know and understand my love for Amazing Grass. Their superfood protein powders have been a staple in my life for the past year, allowing me to have the MOST delicious smoothies and snacks packed with fruits, veggies, protein, and ton of vitamins and nutrients that I don’t normally go out of my way to put into my body.
I was so excited that Amazing Grass was one of the EMPOWER Retreat sponsors and couldn’t wait for everyone to #feelamazingeveryday. Jamie and I thought the best way for the retreaters to experience and fall in love with the Amazing Grass goodness was to create some run and yoga fuel with their protein powders. And now I’m here to give you the recipe rundown of the AMAZING snacks we created using Amazing Grass products.

Run fuel to the rescue!
On our second (that’s right, second) run on Saturday, we went trail running through Sonoma Overlook Park. The sunny, 70 degree weather felt more like 85 degrees on my Portland, vampire skin. I’m no where near complaining about that sunshine, but after all the hills in the sun and the second run of the day, I was feeling pretty drained.
Luckily, our Amazing Grass protein balls were waiting for us at the bottom of the hill. I think I ate 5 in like 2 minutes (sorry, not sorry!).
And if you think we stopped at protein balls, think again! Our hungry brains were going full-speed before the retreat so we decided to make protein muffins as well.
These protein-packed muffins made for the perfect post-yoga and pre-hike snack on the last day of the retreat.
Hiking through Sonoma Valley Regional Park with my sweaty friends was the perfect way to enjoy our last morning of the retreat.
Protein muffins by the pool definitely tops my list of favorite ways to snack after sweating.
There you have it, the Amazing Grass yoga and run fuel, recipe rundown. So get to rolling and baking those snacks to take on any and all of your sweaty adventures!
