Gu Energy Gels have been a staple of fueling for endurance sports for the past 20 years. Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Gel packs energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of any duration or activity. The 100-calorie packet contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption while diminishing stomach distress. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage. It is important to remember to always drink water when taking these gels, since water is used in the digestion process. Also, if you're using the caffeinated gels like Gu Espresso Love make sure you use them when you really need the added energy. We recommend before an intense workout, or at the end of a long workout when you need a boost the most.
Some of the Gu flavors have more caffeine than others. Caramel Macchiato, Espresso Love, and Jet Blackberry all have 40mg caffeine, while all other flavors marked with caffeine have 20mg. Peanut Butter, Strawberry Banana, Lemon Sublime, and Big Apple are the only flavors without any caffeine.

Towards the end of long efforts or during short intense efforts. One gel will get you 25 to 30 minutes of quick energy. Consume with at least 8oz of water.
Skratch has branched out and created their own energy chews; they call them Energy Chews. With the same focus on science and great ingredients, Skratch Labs Energy Chews use only real fruit for flavor, are loaded with sodium, are less sweet than most other chews, and utilize a specific ratio of fructose and glucose so you can get energy sooner. Skratch Labs Energy Chews have a higher moisture content which makes them less syrupy, sticky, or overly sweet. They also have a higher sodium content, about 160mg per pouch, which will help you replace those essential electrolytes lost through sweat during exercise. The blend of cane sugar and tapioca syrup better matches the ratio of transporters for glucose and fructose in the small intestine. This improves energy absorption so you can get the most out of every single Skratch Labs Energy Chews.
Skratch Labs Energy Chews don't use carnauba wax, coloring or flavoring agents, or excess ingredients that aren’t necessary. Skratch Labs Energy Chews are dipped in a sour sugarcoating to add a unique taste. They’re delicious, energizing, and the perfect chew to fuel your next workout. If you're interested in learning more about the science behind Energy Chews, click here to read a blog from Allen Lim PhD, co-founder of Skratch Labs.

These are our go-to product for that mid workout boost. This product allows us to avoid bonking mid workout with out overpowering us with a sticky, overly sweet flavor.
Honey Stinger Gluten Free Waffles have become a staff favorite here at The Feed. These waffles have been great for years, but with the addition of gluten-free options, Honey Stinger has also made the flavors and texture delicious! The inspiration for Honey Stinger Gluten Free Waffles was imported from Belgium where dutch riders often ate these syrupy, chewy waffles on long training rides...commonly known as stroopwafels. Honey Stinger decided to bring the concept to American athletes, and their iconic waffle was born. Delicious wild honey sandwiched between two thin, crispy waffle wafers is the perfect treat. They are certified USDA Organic and come in a convenient single-serve package. We often turn to these waffles when we need something lighter and a little easier to digest compared to an energy bar.
The waffles come in 5 fun flavors: Salted Caramel, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Vanilla Chocolate and Wildflower Honey!
The Feed’s Fave: Organic Vanilla & Chocolate
Here at The Feed, we enjoy the Honey Stinger gluten free waffles as an ideal pre-workout snack, providing ample amounts of energy and fuel without the gluten! These waffles also come in handy through out the day when you are hit with a mid-day snack attack, due to there delicious sweet taste they never fail to leave you feeling satisfied and ready to go!
This was one of our first recovery mixes at The Feed....it tastes great and it works. We use Fluid Recovery after any medium-high intensity workout lasting longer than 90 minutes. If you're workout is shorter, but very intense (45-60 minutes), this product also works. For intense workouts less than 60 minutes in duration, watch those calories and consider this as a meal replacement. The truth about recovery for endurance sports is that you need the right mix of fast acting carbohydrate + protein. Fluid has great ratios, along with glutamine an amino acid that prevents muscle breakdown.
Gluten-free, lactose-free and made from all natural ingredients, the Fluid Recovery Single provides glutamine, electrolytes, and vitamin c, in its 4 to 1 carb/protein blend. This recovery focuses on carb-based recovery to restore muscle glycogen, buffer cramping and break down lactic acid. Mix up a recovery shake or drop a packet of this into your smoothie within 30 minutes after your next workout to boost your glycogen synthesis and minimize your recovery time.
Recovery was the first product offered by Fluid, and they have perfected it and its flavors. Our favorite, the Chocolate Wave contains Dutch processed cocoa, making the mix taste like a delicious glass of chocolate milk.
The Feed’s Fave: Chocolate Wave
We love to mix this up in a blender bottle after an intense cardio or endurance session. Mixes easy, tastes great, and gives muscles exactly what they need to perform the following day.

Or a slice of heaven. We dare you to try one and not say, "Oh my!" They are that good. We even took it to a new level and take them out of the wrappers and slide them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up.

Split started with a simple idea from Chef Jeff Mahin. He asked himself “How can I make better foods on the go?” He has been a chef for most of his life. For years his focus was about how food tasted, presented and was sourced. It was only when he started to exercise and focus on what he ate did the idea of nutrition ever cross his mind.
Turns out, he really had no idea about it. Being new to athletics he tried just about every bar, gel, cookie (he does love cookies....but we can't blame him...so do we!) and waffle he could get his hands on. He focused on flavor, texture and how it made him feel while eating it and after eating it. After a lot of trial and error - meaning some epic bonks - he came up with a simple but profound thought. He performed better when A) He ate real foods and B) when the food he ate tasted good. Knowing this, as simple as it sounds, really lead him to where split was born.
split is about empowering you to make the most of your foods, to choose quality over commodity and to give your body what it craves and deserves. The science in their food is complex, but the concept is simple–split is the perfect combination of one good fat and one good carb.
The Feed’s Fave: Strawberry Spread and Almond Butter

Yes our glove box is a mini warehouse of sports nutrition.
