Sambazon Acai Not Dessert – It’s Power for Pedaling

Last year when I was 20 pounds heavier and looking for healthy ways to fuel, make calories count, and get creative with meals one choice my wife and I made was to include Sambazon’s Acai in our breakfast plan.  We started buying the frozen packs of Acai at Costco and making smoothies topped with fruit.  My brother had been an Acai proponent for years, but I never got it. Purple fruity ice cream had no draw to me. But turns out there’s a lot more.

Join OTH Elite Women’s racer, Jane Rynbrandt, and other CTS coaches this Tuesday, July 29 at 4:30pm at Irvine Lake.Why are health conscious bikers and athletes replacing a full meal with this purple wonder berry? Wonder about that Purple Berry called Acai?

Sambazon has been a regular feature at Over the Hump this season. We’re excited to have them, and here’s why: it’s not a bowl of ice cream and condiments. Acai is special.

Sambazon has been sharing their passion, ACAI, with racers on Tuesday Nights, providing a nutritious, and delicious food option at the Over The Hump. They are sampling and selling their premium, organic Amazon superfood juices and smoothies, açaí bowls topped with organic hemp plus granola, banana, and other functional toppings like coconut and cacao nibs, and providing organic sustained energy with our Amazon energy drinks.

No wonder our friend, trials and free riding explorer legend, Hans Rey, is an açaí connoisseur and Sambazon brand ambassador for many years.

Several things to know about Sambazon Acai products; they are all organic, fair trade, and provide functional, sustained energy and nutrition.

Josh Baer of Sambazon shared with us the Mission and the Fuel behind it:

Whether you’re looking for energy, immunity, strength or sustenance, our bodies are like machines that function best when it’s given the right food for fuel. Unfortunately, most packaged food and beverages are lacking any real health benefits and are made with ingredients produced through unsustainable practices.

At Sambazon we believe your purchase has the power to positively change your health and the health of the world. That’s why we ethically source highly nutritious Amazon Superfoods that provide positive nutrition while helping protect the valuable resources of the rainforest.

Through our market-driven conservation model, we make it more valuable to harvest these amazing fruits than cut down the trees from which they grow. As a result, our Fair Trade partnerships support 10,000 family farmers while helping preserve 2 million acres of the Amazon Rainforest from which these powerful ingredients are sourced.

Sambazon offers: pure positive nutrition with a twist. At its core the founders of Sambazon, the company, hold some values that make the product and the company very attractive to us Humpers. sambazon

Discovery, exploration, adventure, health and living life to the full.  Really, there’s a food company that exists for the same reason we ride? Get your Acai from Sambazon this Tuesday, and get your fill of some tasty purple goodness with strong physical benefits from a company that is also making a difference in the Amazon.
