Ultrarunner, Cardiovascular Nurse, Health Coach & Plant-based Nutrition ConsultantWhat's your story and what are you passionate about?
I work in Boulder as a cardiovascular nurse, health coach/nutrition consultant and co-host of the Thought For Food Podcast. I also run ultramarathons, am a new father and love to travel the world. I want to change the current nutrition and healthcare paradigm in this country and abroad by focusing on the prevention and treatment of chronic disease with plant-based nutrition.How does Skoop fit into your lifestyle?
Skoop makes a line of science based, whole food supplements that help me train and compete consistently, enhance recovery and generally fuel my very busy and active lifestyle.What's your favorite Skoop product?
I really can't pick just one but I can narrow it down to Daily Greens and Endurance Beets. Endurance Beets is amazing stuff because it's more than a bunch of greens. It also has adaptogenic herbs, mushrooms, probiotics and digestive enzymes which keep my endocrine system happy and my gut healthy. The Endurance Beets use beets to increase cardiovascular endurance and efficiency which is backed by peer-reviewed science so who doesn't love that?
CyclistWhat's your story and what are you passionate about?
I come from an athletic family. My 3 siblings and I all played tennis in college. After college I was certificated at the Pilates Center in Boulder and started to teach Pilates for a living. I also started racing road bikes shortly after beginning to teach Pilates.
Racing is my passion in life at the moment, but Pilates has taught me, and continues to teach me, that balance is a constant work in progress. For me this equally includes eating well, as much as training. Everyday is a balancing act. Of course I love to hike and be in the mountains. This is Colorado!How does Skoop fit into your lifestyle?
Skoop is so easy to add to my daily routine. I'm often zipping around from teaching Pilates, to my bike, back to Pilates and then off to yoga. Skoop is easy to shake and mix and drink on the go. Some things, like nutrition and health, should be simple. Skoop is simple.What's your favorite Skoop product?
It is hard to pick one Skoop product. I have to say the Daily Greens are awesome. Probiotics and Omega-3's are added to a vegan nutritional shake. I find that it is easy to drink and tastes great. Also right up there for my favorite Skoop product are the Endurance Beets. I am always looking for a natural, healthy performance boost. This beet blend tastes great! I must be riding faster. At the elite level of any sport, every small nutritional advantage an athlete can gain helps.
Stand-up Paddle BoarderWhat's your story and what are you passionate about?
I grew up in a small town called Rifle, CO. In school I had trouble finding my way so I looked to board sports (snowboarding, skateboarding, wakeboarding) to express myself; sort of like a release. College wasn't for me, so I left and started raft guiding, it wasn't long until I found stand up paddle boarding and was instantly hooked. Now I get paid to travel around the world sharing my undying passion for the sport and writing about my journey.How does Skoop fit into your lifestyle?
Living a more unconventional life, considering the road my home, it's really difficult to maintain a healthy diet. There's a lot of grabbing and going. Skoop helps me stay healthy and get all the nutrients I need all of the time. I have more energy throughout the day for those long drives or tough competitions. It's perfect for my lifestyle.What's your favorite Skoop product?
Breakfast Protein is my favorite. It's all-in-one so I often just throw that in my blender bottle with some water and there's breakfast! It tastes like chai so I don't feel the need to mix it with anything else. If I need something a little extra I'll mix it with almond milk.

Skoop is not just a part of my healthy lifestyle, but it is basically the center of it. I believe that every single micro/macronutrient I need in my diet comes from the Skoop products that I use and I simply could not go a day without them. I use them for recovery, a part of breakfast, lunch, dinner, literally anything. The powders blend seamlessly into smoothies/milk or oatmeal.

All the products also help me to recover on a day-to-day basis, I couldn't live without them!What's your favorite Skoop product?
My favorite Skoop product would have to be the Daily Greens - Sweetgreens. I love how each scoop is ten servings worth of fruits/veggies, which is more than the average person can say they get in a day, and I get it in one scoop! I love to make a smoothie out of it—so I will add some almond milk, a scoop of Daily Greens, some fresh blueberries, and raspberries and I'm set!
