As the days start to warm up and get longer, a cool down routine in the evening becomes even more important. 

Did you know you can get a subscription to beam’s dream powder? It’s what I use most nights before bed to help with a refreshing night’s sleep. When you subscribe, you’ll get the dream blend with a bunch of perks like even better pricing, free shipping, a free mug, and a drink frother just for signing up.

Dream helps me wind down at night and it’s made with compounds like melatonin and magnesium that support a better night’s sleep.

I’ve been a customer of their real food based bars since their early days, and they get better every year.

You can eat the before, during and after a workout (or anytime, really!) and they’re created from a need to have a performance and real food bar. 

One of my favorite fueling choices, they offer a variety of flavors including chocolatey, savory, fruity, spicy, and everything in between.
