The WR editors highlight five Team USA-themed products they love for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
“Sambazon is a Southern California-based company that embraces everything acai. The ever-popular berry returns in Sambazon’s newest protein blend, which also features strawberry and vegan protein. Best mixed either as part of a smoothie (when blended with fruit juice and/or additional fresh fruit) or within a larger protein bowl, the Superfruit Packs deliver 12 grams of protein at just 90 calories per serving. If you’ve ever tried acai, you know that it tastes delicious–so these packs serve as a tasty way to get the healthy boost of protein you need to power that long weekend run.” –Team WR
“I cook with this every day. I’ve honestly never tried regular coconut oil in the solid form before heating up, but this liquid version seems to do the trick. It’s SO light and makes your entire house smell like coconut. Plus, you don’t feel like you’re eating heavy butter or a bad spray with your eggs.” –Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor
“I’m a huge granola fan, whether I’m eating it as part of a parfait or as a side to some fresh fruit. My former go-to brand was discontinued two years ago, and Viki’s Granola is the closest I’ve gotten to replacing it. Though I prefer Viki’s Original, there are four other granola varieties that include dried fruit blends. Bonus: I can pronounce every ingredient listed on the packaging! With pecans, almonds and sunflower seeds mixed in, this granola is super delicious and makes eating healthy enjoyable.” –Meghan Roos, associate web editor
“I’m obsessed with these bars! They taste homemade and are filled with everything a hungry runner needs for recovery…including chocolate chips.” –Allie Burdick, freelance writer
“I love my Zig Zag X-Back Bra because of the extra support it provides and for the cute cross strap. I love the simple design and that the straps don’t dig into my shoulders or move around. Plus, it’s easy to wash and there’s no fading of color or design.” –Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer
