- Whole Foods Market kicks off its inaugural “Ready for Action Week,” June 24 to 30, to encourage active living and proper nutrition to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Valued at $50, this bag will be sold for only $12. Bags are made with 100 percent jute and organic cotton lining from RIJI Green, a business committed to ending human trafficking.

This summer, I've made some big changes! I've really focused on getting my nutrition and workouts back on track: I've joined the Barre3 Challenge, I've challenged Ardara to the First to 15, I'm trying to eat healthy (particularly reducing processed foods and caffeine), and of course, running tons of races! With so much going on, I've really started to understand the saying, "Failing to plan is planning to fail," and I've tried to be better prepared with my food, my workouts, and life in general. Having the right products on hand has made things SO much easier--it makes choosing good options easy. That's which is why Whole Foods is launching their first ever "Ready for Action Week" and "Ready for Action Bag."
I love the items in this bag because it's perfect for my busy summers. Whether it's a weekend, or weekday, I'm on the go and cramming in at least one workout. So having deodorant (and a change of clothes!) in my car means I don't have to make a pit stop back home, and having shelf stable packets of nutritious superfoods means I can fuel my body on the go! I'm happy to see sunscreen in the Ready for Action bag as well, as it is an absolute summer MUST HAVE--I can't stress enough how important it is to protect your skin, even if you tan easily. Aloe and arnica are perfect for soothing skin and muscles, and I love the light effervescence of nuun electrolyte tablets for staying hydrated. And having an adorable jute bag to carry around my essentials is always a good thing!
