Electrolyte-Infused Water: Is It Worth It? (Plus How to DIY)

Lately, I’ve been a little obsessed with electrolyte-enhanced water. The other day, there was a sale at the store–10 bottles for $10–and my eyes did that whirly jackpot thing, cartoon character-style. What’s going on here?

Girl Drinking Water

Water with electrolytes isn’t exactly new–it flowed (heh) into the mainstream bottled-water scene about five years ago, and now you can find it on shelves in just about every grocery store. Electrolyte-enhanced waters have things like potassium and sodium added to them, which help your body absorb the water more quickly. These electrolytes are helpful in preventing dehydration, so they’re especially useful during and after intense workouts. But filtered tap water is A-OK for shorter workouts and day-to-day hydration.

So is it necessary to invest in bottles of the stuff? You can actually DIY a version of your own electrolyte-enhanced water using things you probably already have in your kitchen. Dr. Oz’s site features a recipe from Bob Harper with four ingredients: water, agave nectar, sea salt, and baking soda (WebMD has a similar recipe).Filling a water bottle about halfway with citrus juice–which contains potassium–and distilled water, plus pinches of salt and honey, can make an electrolyte-infused drink, too.

Of course, doing it yourself won’t be exactly like the stuff on the shelves–brands like SmartWater, for example, are also “vapor-distilled,” and most brands are also flavorless–but as someone who’s shelled out more than she probably needs to on bottles to drink post-workout, I love having these cheaper options at the ready.

Do you drink electrolyte-enhanced water–or just go for the regular stuff? Are you a sportsdrink fan?

Tahini Kale #RECIPE VIA #MaximizedLiving and #SmartMeals

Kimberly Roberto, co-author of the Maximized Living Nutrition Plans

Core & Advanced Plan Approved, Serves 4-6

The nutrition in this dish is out of this world and so is the taste. This recipe is great for people new to kale, even for those who say they don’t like it. You can customize it to your taste and it is great for packing on the go.

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches kale, stems removed and chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 3-4 tablespoons of tahini (sesame paste)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid aminos or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, optional
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Depending on the size of your kale bunch, you can adjust the quantities. Feel free to add more or less of any of the ingredients, just adjust according to your own taste.

 Directions

  1. Put all ingredients in a large bowl and massage the kale with your hands, really working the mixture together and breaking down the kale. It should reduce quite a bit.
  2. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!

9 Health Benefits of Broccoli via Care2 Healthy Living


9 Health Benefits of Broccoli | Care2 Healthy Living.

Love It or Hate It… Broccoli is Good for You!

By Randy Fritz

“I do not like broccoli. And I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.”  –George Bush

The same year President Bush made this statement, Johns Hopkins University published a cancer study showing that broccoli prevented the development of tumors by 60 percent and helped reduce the size of the tumor by 75 percent!

These finding are just a “taste” of the many health benefits of broccoli. Discover these, the trivia and history behind this plant and some awesome recipes. Broccoli is a powerfood. Unless you are in a select group of individuals, (page 3) broccoli is your friend!

9 Health Benefits

1. Cancer Prevention

Broccoli contains glucoraphanin, which the body processes into the anti-cancer compound sulforaphane. This compound rids the body of H. pylori, a bacterium found to highly increase the risk of gastric cancer. Furthermore, broccoli contains indole-3-carbinol, a powerful antioxidant compound and anti-carcinogen found to not only hinder the growth of breast, cervical and prostate cancer, but also boosts liver function.

Broccoli shares these cancer fighting, immune boosting properties with other cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and cabbage.

2. Cholesterol Reduction

Like many whole foods, broccoli is packed with soluble fiber that draws cholesterol out of your body.

3. Reducing Allergy Reaction and Inflammation

Broccoli is a particularly rich source of kaempferol and isothiocyanates, both anti-inflammatory phyto nutrients. Research has shown the ability of kaempferol to lessen the impact of allergy-related substances on our body. Broccoli even has significant amounts of omega 3 fatty acids, which are well know as an anti-inflammatory.

4. Powerful Antioxidant

Of all the cruciferous vegetables, broccoli stands out as the most concentrated source of vitamin C, plus the flavonoids necessary for vitamin C to recycle effectively. Also concentrated in broccoli are the carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene, other powerful antioxidants.

5. Bone Health

Broccoli contains high levels of both calcium and vitamin K, both of which are important for bone health and prevention of osteoporosis.

6. Heart Health

The anti-inflammatory properties of sulforaphane, one of the isothiocyanates (ITCs) in broccoli, may be able to prevent (or even reverse) some of the damage to blood vessel linings that can be caused by inflammation due to chronic blood sugar problems.

7. Detoxification

Glucoraphanin, gluconasturtiin and glucobrassicin are special phytonutrients that support all steps in the body’s detox process, including activation, neutralization and elimination of unwanted contaminants. These three are in the perfect combination in broccoli.  Broccoli also contains isothiocyanates (which you read about in inflammation) which help control the detox process at a genetic level.

8. Diet Aid

Broccoli is a smart carb and is high in fiber, which aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating. Furthermore, a cup of broccoli has as much protein as a cup of rice or corn with half the calories.

9. Alkalizes Your Body

Like many vegetables, broccoli helps keep your whole body less acidic, which has a host of health benefits. Read the dangers of an over acid body at: Balance Your Body.
