Imagine our surprise when the newest addition to Tri Camp - non-athlete and chocolate lover Lucy charged into Tri Camp Towers clasping a bag of homemade Paleo cookies. The rest of the team nearly fell to the floor in shock. However, these cookies were undoubtable delicious, so we thought we would share the recipe with you...
2 cups ground almonds
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil, do not melt it. Keep it in its hardened stage.
Quick, easy, no artificial ingredients and no cooking required (perfect!) – all natural flackjacks.
Last weekend I went to stay with some friends for a race, and was handed some neat, pocket sized packages. Nothing illegal. These little bundles of joy were actually healthy, natural flapjacks, perfect for bikes rides and quick training snacks. The best thing about them, they are super easy to make, delicious and don’t require baking. Even I can manage that!
Give them a go...
Interview with Olympic swimmer Caitlin McClatchey and World Record Holder Liam Tancock!

She bagged Liam and Caitlin for a catch up about important things such as swimming, swimming and more swimming. Would they consider taking up triathlon, training camps, sweets and Caitlin's very small head.

Non is the current World Champion after a storming year in 2013. She was the first lady to win consecutive world titles as an Under 23 and Senior, the only other triathlete that has done this is Alistair Brownlee. She confirmed her dominance in WTS Grand Final in Hyde Park last year when she obliterated the womens field, despite having a 15 second penalty.
