"Skout products taste great, are satiating, and are loaded with nutrients, making them perfect for longer runs or hikes. Because they’re not overly sweet or too dense, the bars also make a great pre-race meal. As a plant-based athlete, I value whole foods that allow me to perform at my best, and Skout does exactly that."
