Megabake – Quality sports bars

intraining Running Centre are proud stockists and supporters of local Brisbane company Megabake and is produced by bakers. The high quality, natural ingredient bars are a perfect source of energy ideal for before, after and during training to maintain your energy levels. Megabake bars are ideal for those with sensitive stomachs who are looking for a real food alternative in a pint-sized package.

Megabake was born out of a need for a premium, portable source of nutrition for endurance activities. The bakers, before they were the bakers, were disillusioned with the quality of the sports nutrition products available in the Australian market; overly processed, overly priced, inadequate nutrition, too many additives and not pleasant to eat.

Megabake is a Brisbane-based small batch baker of an energy bar of the highest order. We proudly stand behind what we passionately believe is the best energy bar available, and it is produced locally which means it is practically from the bakers door to your tummy.

Love 2 Eat during Summer

Now that the warmer weather is here it often means the barbeque gets more use, the perfect opportunity to serve some cool refreshing salads using plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Fruit and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet and that applies to runners too.

Fruit and vegetables are a rich source of antioxidants, naturally occurring substances that are found in certain foods that can help to prevent some of the damage (oxidative stress) caused by harmful free radicals.

Free radicals are generated during oxygen consumption (increased during strenuous exercise), exposure to pollution and UV radiation and over time can contribute to heart disease, some cancers, arthritis and inflammation. So, what can we do about it?
