Wednesday Workout: Informal On-The-Go and Recovery Food

  From the dawn of sports nutrition when PowerBars were ubiquitous to the DIY world of handcrafted nibbles for athletes on-the-go and recovering, sports nutrition has become an industry. For this Wednesday Workout, we wanted to revisit a few classic low cost and relatively simple items when it comes to nutrition. Without diving into the deep science, the basics are well agreed upon: you’ll need some protein, carbohydrates, and some ingredients to make it all palatable. We’re thinking a smidge o...
