Nutrition Unlimited - 1

I’ve decided to write a series of nutrition article on this blog, as I have been in this industry for so long I understood that Sports and Fitness Supplements are misused by lots of recreational exercisers and professional sportsmen.

How often do you buy sports drinks Red Bull, Power Gold, Foco or any other in the market? How often do you buy protein powders or weight gainers even amino acids? The question is don’t you have any other way to replace these by home made drinks. I have done an extensive research in this about how you can create some nutritious drinks by yourself to give yourself better nourishment than those sold on the market. Today I’ll give you two recipes which are worth trying.

Energy Drink

¼ Cup Sugar
¼ Teaspoon Salt
¼ Cup Hot Water
¼ Cup Orange Juice (Not Concentrate)
2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice3
½ Cup Cold Water

· In the bottom of a pitcher, dissolve the sugar and salt in the hot water
· Add the juice (orange and lemon) and the remaining water; chill


Total: 04 Servings

Nutrients:
Carbohydrates: 12g
Sodium: 110mg

Protein Shake

½ Cup dried milk powder
½ Cup Low fat milk
2 Tablespoon chocolate milk powder
½ Cup Soya Milk

· Combine ingredients in a blender
· Cover and blend for 1 minute until smooth


Total: 01 Serving
