Multi-sport endurance athlete and coconut butter lover Brigitte Stotter (pictured) is part of a growing number of athletes opting to fuel their bodies with whole foods instead of the more traditional goos and gels. Some of her favorite ways to use our coconut butters are in her breakfast oatmeal, added to pre-workout and recovery drinks and along-the-ride bars.
Brigitte's resume includes competitive finishes in a whole host of Ironman triathlons (140.6 & 70.3), marathons and endurance swimming.
