With the summer season and warmer weather upon us, we can give ourselves permission to embrace the great outdoors and challenge ourselves to walk, run or bike more than we have in the last year or so. Indoors or outdoors, daily movement is essential to our wellbeing. Fueling that daily movement is the part of the equation that can really make or break your overall mood. Plant-based, natural fuel like almonds, which contain protein, fiber, and energy-boosting nutrients, can help you feel motivated to walk further or run faster.
A great incentive to move more is the ability to do good for your community while fitting in that daily walk or run. California Almonds has partnered with Charity Miles, a movement-tracking app where you can support causes through exercise. The app lets you log various types of exercise, from running and walking to dancing and biking, and select a charity of your choice to support with your movement count. As of April 2021, Charity Miles has tracked 558,240 users who have completed 1,038,501 workouts and 2,913,801 miles with California Almonds, and there is always more need out in our communities. Simply download the app here to get started.
