The yu•mi Challenge

We have done alot of research. All of our choices have to do with what we feel and think, through our research and experiments, are best. Sometimes, you don’t know what you don’t know. We are here to make it easy- but with a challenge.

The Challenge:

For 3 days, eliminate all forms of dairy (yep, no cheese, no yogurt, no milk- but almond milk, coconut milk and flax milk are all ok using the cleanest version meaning no sugar added– GO PLAIN), wheat, soy and processed sugar (plain fruit, within reason, is fine; also stevia is fine as it comes from a plant).

Before you do this, weigh yourself and jot it down. After day three, weigh yourself and jot it down. And- take note of how you feel each day.

Dr. Josh Axe shares some ideas here.

Hope you enjoy the challenge and the benefits!




How To Read Labels: It Just Takes A Little Practice

Great article by Runner’s World Mag. Once you spend a little time learning how to do this, it gets easy. In fact, it will become a natural state of mind fairly quickly. You will notice the poor choices and will remember that those poor choices do not make you feel good. Then, you end up going for the good stuff without even thinking about it. Like anything good, it just takes practice.

Here is a sample label that Runner’s World posted.


Love for Carytown Bicycle

We are so in love with Carytown Bicycle in Richmond, Virginia. We are having so much fun serving yu•mi. Please come by. It is a fun and relaxing atmosphere. And who knows…perhaps you can pick up a bike while you are there! Open daily Monday-Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 1-4.

What is yu•mi?

What is yu•mi?

It is NOT frozen yogurt. It is NOT ice cream. It is NOT a smoothie. You EAT IT with a spoon.

yu•mi (pronounced you me) is barista-style frozen treat that not only tastes good, but is filled with good ingredients that make you feel good while you eat it (and after). Dairy free. Wheat free. Gluten free. Soy free. A smidge of Stevia but otherwise- no sugar.

PEOPLE CRAVE IT. We hear it daily! And, well, we crave it too.

Here is a photo of our yu•mi this morning. Smooth texture yet nice and thick.IMG_3910

Thank You Pro-Athlete Lesley Paterson

So grateful to meet Lesley Paterson and Kate Lucas. They are in town to compete in the Xterra races this weekend and have been wonderful house guests. It works especially well when the three of us eat, think and train in similar ways  (ok- Lesley is pro…but Kate and I get in a good bit of hours too)…Nonetheless, we want the same results = hard work and dedication leading us to enjoy our lifestyles.

yu•mi is especially excited about Lesley and Kate loving us!

Thank you so much! This has been a fun week and there is way more to come.

Check out the yu•mi barista love last night. :)
