Lubbock is home to the great BUFFALO SPRINGS 70.3 (half ironman). I love this race. The course is ridiculously, hot, dry, and hard (well, at least that’s what the hubs says. hehe.). But the people are just fantastic and the view isn’t too shabby either.
Last year the hubs placed top 5 in this race but it came with a consequence…..
Don’t worry, after an IV and some Gatorade, he was a WHOLE NEW MAN!
This year race temps are low of 72F and high of 105F!!! Yes, 105F people. I’m thinking he’ll have to get an IV again along with 2000 other participants. EEK! I’ll be sure to bring the pedialyte too!
But another way to we’ll cool off will be with a new flavor Healthy Bites.
Remember my Mint Chocolate chip Fix?
Well I couldn’t get it out of my head. I wanted more!
So I made these and all my taste buds thanked me, multiple times!
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites
- 28 grams Dry milk powder (I used goats milk powder)
- 30 grams Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (mini chips work well)
- 2 heaping tbsp dark chocolate peanut butter
- 2 heaping tbsp honey or agave nectar
- 1 tsp mint extract
Throw everything into a bowl. Mix with hands and roll into balls. Store in fridge or freezer and enjoy!
Makes around 15-16 bites.
Ahh yes, MINTY FRESH!
How do you stay cool in extreme heat?
Cheers from the road,
If I don’t respond to any emails, tweets, etc., that’s because we’re in the boonies and there’s barely any cell service, let alone wireless. Good ‘old country roads!
