According to multiple medical studies, the high level athlete needs around 9-10 hours of sleep! Who out there is getting that many GOOD hours? Here [...]

As with most things, a little planning goes a long way. If you’re going to be away from home for most of the day, make arrangements to keep your perishable snacks and leftovers cold. A cooler with ice or an insulated pack are good options if a fridge is not available. REI has a great one. A lot of paleo snacks are really energy dense and [...]
