Commercial sports and recovery drinks get an universally bad wrap: they’re full of sugar, unnatural dyes, extra preservatives, and are overpriced. Some critiques are fair, though if you’re doing extended cardiovascular exercise, you do need additional carbohydrates in your blood so you don’t hit “the bonk.”
Regardless, there are many benefits to making your own energy drinks at home: you save money, reduce waste (no more plastic bottles), and you get an extra boost of nature-created vitamins and minerals. The team of Everyday Roots know this and created an super easy guide so you can whip up one of these goodies.
With summer in full blast, lots of local farmers markets are bursting with fresh produce, so take advantage of this and get fresh fruits and veggies for your concoctions.
You know what they say, less is more, and this case, less refined ingredients is better. Visit Everyday Roots to get full recipes and tips to get you started.
Cheers to a healthy summer, gentlemen.
