I workout quite a bit and sweat like crazy when doing so, I am looking for some good recipes to help hydrate as quick as possible. Thanks in advance and loving the nutriblast so far

Hydrate-orade Cool off withHydrate-orade Cool off with this refreshing post-run elixer. It’s fresh, it’s sweet, and just a tad salty to replenish lost electrolytes and get you back up and running! Handful of spinach ½ cucumber 1 kiwi (skin removed) ½ cup diced melon (cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon) 1 Tbsp raw honey Pinch of salt Coconut water to the Max line Another good "salty" addition could be celery. Enjoy :)
Sounds awesome, thank you Krista!
This sounds SOOOO good!
Would this work if I just getting over the stomach flu and need to hydrate.

This mix should help most people with hydration. As long as you are not dehydrated to the point where you would need IV fluids, this is a great alternative to the always popular, water :)
Great Question. In my quest to find an alternative to processed sports drinks I have created a Blast I like to call "NutriAide"! It will replenish your body with the fluid and electrolytes thatwere lost through exercise (and them some!) Now we can get a natural sports drinks made of real food and without refined sugar. Try it and let me know how you like it! NutriAide Recipe: Drink within 10-15 minutes of stopping exercise. Drink 4-6 ounces if your workout was less than 60 minutes and 6-12 ounces if it was 60 minutes or more. For workouts longer than 3 hours I suggest drinking 4 ounces every 15 minutes for 2 hours. This will have the most valuable impact of continued recovery. 1 celery stalk (contains sodium, potassium magnesium, chloride and phosphorous.) ½ lemon (high in all electrolytes) 1 apple (contains potassium and adds natural flavor) 4 strawberries (vitamin C, fiber) 1 tsp Sea salt (sodium *heavy sweaters add more, light sweaters use less)) 1 tbsp Chia seeds (omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber) Baby Spinach leaves or kale (excellent source of magnesium and calcium.) 2 cups water

JennGiles recipe and Krista both look good... I would suggest easy on the apple and limit strawberry as the fiber slows digestion down. I would add banana for the potassium and most definitely use coconut water instead of regular water. coconut water is the best hydration option out for raw.
