Pretty Lady: Antonia

26 Apr

MargitMae is excited to announce a new feature called Pretty Lady!  In each Pretty Lady, a MargitMae reader will share her favorite products that keep her lovely and healthy.  If you would like to participate as a Pretty Lady (or Pretty Man!), please shoot us an e-mail – we’d love to hear from you!

MargitMae’s first ever Pretty Lady is the amazingly fabulous Antonia!

What a babe!

Hailing from Nebraska, this 20-something transplant to Minnesota spends her time biking, running, and Pilates-ing around Minneapolis where she resides with her manpanion and her dog, Evey.  Over the past few years, Antonia has spent a great deal of time and effort learning about how to balance herself through fitness and food; she’s become a great champion for healthy living and is an inspiration to those around her.

In her quest for balance, Antonia has found what products help her maintain her lovely, healthy glow.  As Antonia is an awesomely low maintenance lady who, in her own words, isn’t “learned” about beauty products (*cough* keep reading MargitMae, Antonia *cough*), she has chosen to feature tasty treats that help her get to her best.  In her own words, here are Antonia’s Top 3 for Healthy Hotness.

  • Justin’s Nut Butter  Out on long runs and rides, many athletes need some sort of nutritional supplement to keep the body energized and moving. But be careful! Many of these supplements contain chemicals, sugar, wheat, and/or soy products that have made me seriously ill  (I thought it was being nervous about whatever athletic endeavor I was embarking on, but I was WRONG).  Justin’s is excellent, clean, and comes in small, cheap packages meant to be stuck in a jersey or running shorts.
  • C2O Coconut Water After a big workout, the body needs to be replenished. But again, Gatorade and similar products are full of crap! Even the more natural versions of them are still full of sugar. This is perfect and delicious and full of natural electrolytes.
  • LÄRABAR, Cherry Pie As with all products these days, you still have to be careful. Some Larabars are still filled with sugar and chocolate but some, like the Cherry Pie flavor have three ingredients: dates, almonds, and cherries. And they taste unbelievably good!

Thank you for sharing, Antonia!  Are there any other active beauties out there who have favorite food or beauty products to keep hotness and healthiness at maximum performance?
