Fueling the Fire #MomsMeet #Sponsored

Every weekend, we grab our packs, strap on our shoes, and head for a trail. Somewhere closeby. Sometimes we climb up to a the top of ridge.


Other days we head to the coast and hop on rocks and dodge the waves.


Some weekends have us heading into the redwood forest.


Other times, we're chasing the dramatic views we get living on the edge of a continent. We would probably hike more often, but school and work schedules get in the way during the week. So, Sundays are our family-hike days. And we definitely log more hours and miles during the summertime.


When the boys were smaller, we had to carry them. Yikes! I'm so glad they're out of that phase. But I knew it was the safest way for them to be at the edge of the Grand Canyon, so I didn't grumble about it too much.


And when they were little, Jake and I carried all the snacks. We joke that they walked 10 feet and asked if it were time for a snack break. That really wasn't too far from the truth. Snack breaks were a big thing when they were learning to hike.


Now, they pack their own water and their own snacks. And they are certainly outpacing us on the hikes. I was fortunate to receive samples of the Fuel for Fire pouches* and we tested them out on various hikes this past month.

Our Thoughts
We received samples of every flavor - Strawberry Banana, Banana Cocoa, Tropical, Sweet Potato Apple, and Coffee. With the exception of the Sweet Potato Apple, we found the banana almost overwhelming in every other flavor. It wasn't that it was off-putting, just unexpected; it almost takes over every other taste, even the coffee.

But, once we got beyond that, we found the pouches satisfying and filling. I love how convenient they are to store - no refrigeration needed - and to pack. The boys did like how you can still have a fruit while you're hiking without worrying about the fruit getting squished in your pack during the trip. Easy and healthy. It's a much better option to fuel the fire than a sugar-laden candy bar. I'm a fan!
