When training, we need to replenish the minerals we lost through sweat, such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, chloride, and calcium. So if you only drink water, you won’t be able to nourish your body appropriately. Same goes for gulping down sports drinks that contain anything not in its natural form (it’s harder to digest, has minimal if any nutritional qualities, and it’s probably gone through some chemical changes. Ew).
Here’s a recent recipe Jaime whipped up during her Sports Nutrition Course. Try the Hydration Station during your next workout!
- 1 1/2 cup coconut water
- 1 cup water
- 1 lemon (juice from)
- 1 tbsp agave nectar
- Salt to taste
- Blend all together (can add more water to dilute)
