The pages of ROCKET FUEL are chock-full of portable recipes that can fuel a multitude of active pursuits. Just one problem: you need a reliable way to transport your grub. Actually, that’s not really a concern as Abeego has your back.
In my book, I’m quick to praise this forward-thinking company for providing a stellar solution to reusable food wraps. After all, who wants to return from a full day in the saddle or hike in the mountains with a pile of plastic wrap or wad of aluminum foil that will likely just end up being pitched. Not such an eco-friendly ending to a workout.
The true beauty of these wraps is that the hemp and cotton fabric that is coated in beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil making them malleable at room temperature. That allows the wraps to snuggly and effortlessly form around your DIY mini pancakes and bars such as these ROCKET FUEL Mango Lime Bars. Plastic wrap? Not so much.
The small wraps are perfect for portable fuel options like bars and waffle bites. I’ll employ the medium sized flats for things like crepe rolls or road trip sandwiches. And then I make use of the large wraps for covering large pieces of cut fruits and vegetables like watermelon and cabbage for covering containers full of meal leftovers. The pages of ROCKET FUEL contain a recipe for this Espresso Fruit Log that is a tasty pre-workout energy source. I give instructions for forming it in plastic wrap to be stashed in the freezer, but recently discovered that the large Abeego flat works even better and allows for a little more enviro-dogoodery. Trust me, the recipe taste better than it looks.
Clean-up is a breeze. Simply give the wraps a light scrub and let dry over a dish rack. Soon they will be ready to go for another one of life’s adventure.
You can learn about the plethora of other amazing uses for Abeego in your kitchen here.
And if you become lost in the woods with no rescue in sight, I’ve been told that you can sacrifice an Abeego as they make for great fire starters.
For a bounty of recipes that can put Abeego to good use, order your copy of ROCKET FUEL and get ready to take your workouts up a gastronomic notch.
