Katy Percy's Go Faster Food

There is nothing better as a blogger than receiving something in the post, and this week it was something especially exciting....food. I've teamed up with Katy Percy and the Go Faster Food team to show you how important diet is towards achieving your fitness goals, especially if you've got a specific sport/competition, you need to target your training and food appropriately. 



So, who is Katy Percy? Just like you and me, a normal person who decided to change the life of her family for the better through food. Katy's husband was struggling during training for a marathon so she changed their diet to help compliment his training and it was go go go from there on, afterwards Katy even decided to take on a marathon herself. Now Katy has come up with a bestselling book that provides recipes and inspiration for athletes, not just Olympic athletes but the everyday person that wants to achieve. The book is however currently used by Olympians, the Great Run and 220 Triathlon, proving that it's top quality stuff. After writing the book, Katy went on to create Go Bite, which are soooo delicious....


Go Bites 

These beautiful little balls come in three different flavours and have been created to enhance your workout. These three flavours are: 
-Date & Coconut (boost) 
-Apricot & Seed (refuel) 
-Hazelnut & Chocolate (recover) - I am eating one of these as I write this post! 

Each packet comes with three balls, all of the flavours are made with 100% natural ingredients and are gluten, dairy and wheat free. They are all vegetarian friendly and only the Apricot & Seed variety has a drop of honey, making the others completely vegan friendly too. During the Winter my Athletics training is less about speed and more about keeping my fitness up with longer runs and more indoor gym work. So, I like to have the Date & Coconut balls before my workout just to give me that little pick me up and then the Hazelnut after a workout as I am usually not ready for a big meal but need something to keep me going. Or sometimes I just eat them at my desk because they are a delicious and healthy snack. 


The Book 

As well as receiving the Go Bites I was also treated the to 'Go Faster Food For Your Active Family' book. This contains 101 recipes that accommodate family life and suit sporty people of all ages. The book also contains tips on how to stay motivated and inspire young athletes to pursue their sports dreams. I especially like the book because the recipes are simple and not full of ridiculously expensive products that you have to obtain at obscure health stores, just real, good food. 

If you want to find out more about the Katy Percy Go Faster range check out the website here and in a few weeks i'll be posting my favourite recipe from the book. 

Cya!
