Optimize Your Inner Olympian
By Neka Pasquale, Founder of Urban Remedy
We’re so inspired watching the Olympics this week. Swimming, gymnastics, volleyball, basketball. In addition to motivating us to workout more, it has us thinking about how food plays a vital role in training and recovery. Whether you’re in the pool, hitting the trails or heading to the office, what you eat impacts how you perform. Read more from our founder, Neka Pasquale, about how eliminating refined sugar increases performance.
Neka also recommends these organic, low-glycemic products to optimize your inner Olympian!
A quick hit of beet, apple, and ginger for on-the-go energy.
Recover faster with an anti-inflammatory shot of sweet and spicy.
Protein-rich, nutritionally-balanced fuel for the long haul.
Beets are the ultimate endurance ingredient pre-workout to take it to the next level.
A hydrating blend of antioxidants to get you to the finish line.
Low in sugar, high in protein. Great for before, during or after workouts.
