and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading now.

I ended up not racing last year…life got in the way with starting another remodel, but, have a couple tris on the schedule this year. Though, I am by no means anything more than an average age grouper. I was part of the Honey Stinger hive a couple of seasons ago, but didn’t renew when I knew life was changing a bit. It is good to have sponsors though! The bike is truly my favorite leg, but I have promised myself to focus more on being a triathlete this year instead of just a bike racer that swims and runs around the bike portion. 🙂

How awesome that you compete at a high level in beach volleyball! That is a fun sport. I used to have a weekly game that I played in for a couple years — being 6 ft tall lends itself to volleyball quite nicely. Alas, the group eventually disbanded and along came triathlon.

Thanks for your note and I hope your friends get you into tris before you retire from volleyball! :):)

I compete in beach volleyball, semi pro level and masters tournaments now that I turned 40, and my three sponsors are heavilly involved in tri also. Are you still racing? I have promises my friends that when i retire, I will attempt a sprint tri…I teach spin and have swum all my life (not open water so much, but some) and have run track and cross country in high school, but never put all three disciplines together in one race…HELLO JELLY LEGS off the bike 😀

This recipe sounds awesome, but I am sponsored by a sports nutrition company that uses honey as their only sweetner and energy enhancer in all their products. As good as this sounds, I am thankful not to have to toil in making my own energy bars, and snacks! Good luck in your race season if you are still competing!

If that is what you have, go for it.

There are some schools of thought that roasting nuts alters the fatty acid content and are more difficult to digest. But, I wouldn’t let that interfere — go with what you have!

I’ve been checking for months. I believe it might have been a mixture of countries. Viet Nam is big for cashews. whole Foods was selling them from Viet Nam.

The almonds at TJ’s are US, and so are peanuts. Same with pecans and raisins.

I never looked at the origin before, but you make a great point (as usual)!

You hear about so many horror stories about anti-biotic usage in honeybees, polluted shrimp farms, tainted meat in dog food. And I know it’s probably unfair to plop the whole continent of Asia into that one category, but that’s just how I feel.

I’ve not seen actual RAW cashews from US, not that they are actually “raw” anyway, same as almonds. They are just not “roasted” LOL

But I’m still looking for raw cashews from Brazil.

I have been buying them from Trader Joe’s — now I need to look, as I am guessing they are not-USA grown. What is the concern about the Asian cashews? I am curious now!
