Transform your baking repertoire by using smart substitutions like unsweetened applesauce instead of fats like butter or oil. The texture and taste stays the same and the resulting breads and muffins are that much healthier.
Greatist Hits the Road: The LUNA Chix Summit
The road to a fitter, healthier, and happier lifestyle is tough, we know — and doing it solo can be even tougher. But Greatist has pledged to stay in your corner, and it looks like others are doing the same (frickin' awesome) thing.
This weekend marks the 7th annual LUNA Chix Summit, part of Team LUNA CHIX, a fitness program designed to bring women together to learn new sports, stay active, and inspire others to do the same. Hosted in Berkeley, California, the three-day event will feature fun, fitness challenges along with a jam-packed schedule of educational workshops on nutrition, injury prevention, running, cycling, yoga, and more.
And, lucky for us, the LUNA folks have invited Greatist's fitness editor (me!) along for the ride. My mission (after squeezing all you incredible Greatists into my suitcase, of course): To get moving with the 26 kick-ass LUNA Chix Local Teams, while taking notes on the Pro Team’s takes on performance training, methodology, and motivation (to keep us coming back for more!).
Starting today I'll be writing, tweeting, and Instagraming all weekend long — so if you're game to join me and countless others (for a good cause!), this is your chance to come along. And if all goes according to plan, I'll be refueling with LUNA bars and only LUNA bars for three days straight. (Favorite flavors, friends?)
Who knows, maybe next year the entire Greatist family can break out the bikes and hit the road together. Let’s just figure out how to get the dudes involved somehow…
Join the conversation with me on Twitter (@jshakeshaft), Instagram (username: jshakes1), and check back on Monday for some super-fun updates!Full Disclosure: Travel, accommodations, and all other arrangements to attend the LUNA Chix Summit were paid in full by LUNA. Special thanks to their team for including Greatist in their biggest summit yet!

I am SO jealous that you get to do this - what a cool conference!
I attended the summit last year as a part of the Chapel Hill, NC cycling team. It was awesome! It was my first time in California and I loved it! We got to visit Clif bar head quarters, attend workshops on nutrition and cycling/running/triathlon skills, got to learn from and train with the pro LUNA team, and we got a ton of freebies. Have fun!
Love it! Good to meet you at Summit :-)
It was great meeting you at Summit--I hope you had a great time! I hope you'll join the NYC run team for a few sessions this season :)
