Homemade Sports Nutrition - Recipes for DIY Drinks, Gels and Chews
When you exercise for long periods of time or workout vigorously in the heat, you need to replace electrolytes and glycogen lost through sweat. Whether you are training for an endurance event or simply enjoy taking your workout outdoors, it’s important to properly fuel your body. Some commercial sports nutrition brands are expensive and others have ingredients you may prefer not to put into your body. What’s the solution? Try making your own sports nutrition recipes - it’s less expensive, you control the ingredients, and you add the flavorings you enjoy best.
