Forget Ultra for a minute, because there's another huge event beginning in Miami today that offers far greater pleasures for those of us into sports.
Sony Open Tennis matches start today, March 18, at 10 a.m. and continue through Sunday, March 31. Like Ultra, the tournament can be exhausting -- especially for attendees during the first week of matches when they're running from court to court as multiple matches are played simultaneously.
Look for the company's booth at the entrance. The smoothies and drinks come in handy pouches, and the bites and chips are made from 100 percent fruit with no preservatives, colorings, or artificial flavorings. Plus, they're handier than carrying around a bag of fruit at the event (a banana in your pocket is always awkward) -- and more healthful than grabbing a hot dog.
Buddy Fruits and Short Order are giving you two chances to score tickets
to the Sony Open so you can experience great tennis while you're
snacking on some healthful treats.

Saturday, March 23 morning session (with access to all the matches),

Let the smiling and the hashtagging begin!
