The winter weather invites opportunity for some of our favorite mountain-side sports. Whether you’re hitting the slopes, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing, it’s important to remember to stay hydrated during a day on the mountain.
It’s easy to forget to keep hydrated when the weather is cold, and you’re not left feeling hot and sweaty after your workout. But the truth is that cold weather workouts (especially on the mountain), require even more attention to staying on your hydration A-Game. The Nuun Elite team has many Nordic skiers that understand the value and payoff of proper mountain hydration. With a number of those athletes heading to this year’s Winter Olympics Games, we think they’ve got something figured out!
The start of a new year is an exciting time for organizing race calendars and goals for the upcoming 12 months ahead. Here at Nuun Headquarters, we’ve got some lofty goals and exciting events on our 2018 line up.
Our “top picks” bucket list is a reflection of our resolutions this year: Travel more, Inspire Others and Keep Muuving!
This flavorful chili will satisfy your taste-buds and is perfect for a post long-run recovery meal. It packs a major protein punch through plant-based protein sources (legumes/beans), and is full of essential and non-essential amino acids for muscle recovery. To top it all off, this recovery meal provides a balanced blend of key vitamins and minerals!
This chili should be served over brown rice to round out your proteins, and avocado slices for some of those healthy fats.
For a little EXTRA yum, sprinkle with some shredded cheese just before serving!
Running and Cycling resolutions can take a number of different forms as we welcome the new year. This is an exciting time to evaluate your progress from last year, and make personal builds as we move into 2018. One of the most valuable things you can do for your resolution, is to create a plan or support system to keep your goals in place! Here are some of our favorite ways to keep the resolution stoke high.Read More

When is the last time you tried something brand new?
At Nuun HQ, we are kicking off 2018 with a different type of resolution. We call it: The Nuubie Challenge. We’re challenging ourselves and others to get out of our comfort zones and try a NEW activity each week of January.
Zumba, Rowing, Mountain Biking. These are just a few activities on our Nuubie lists here at HQ…but the list goes on.
This January, we’re inviting YOU to step up to the challenge as well!
At Nuun we take our bubbles very seriously, which is why we’re crazy about the combination of a bubbling effervescent tablet with a glass of bubbly! The white grape mimosa is our unique take on the traditional mimosa, replacing your regular citrus pop with a sweet, grape twist.
Pop. Fizzle. Clink. Hydrate…

The number of distractions around us today in sport, in business and in life is louder and faster than any other time in our lives. Let’s face it, this year has been overwhelming to many. It’s been a year of personal bests, joy and laughter, and deeper connections, but wasn't without sadness, frustration, and challenges along the way. I want to take a quick look back at the last year with all of you, with the hope that you take away a small nugget to apply to your goals in life, be they personal, athletic, or professional.
This year, we made some conscious choices as a team: to stay laser focused on our purpose of inspiring people to move more. To progress our mission of creating the world’s best hydration to address our chronically dehydrated society. And to collectively to create a culture where you want to work, not have to work.

When I eat pasta, I like to keep it simple with a traditional marinara only has a hand full of ingredients. This is a base recipe that's quick to make, and it's easy to add additional ingredients to match the flavor of the week. For example, add diced carrots, celery, and your protein of choice to make it into a heart bolognaise sauce.
This sauce freezes well, so you can make a batch in bulk and store it for future weeknight dinners.
Have you ever wondered why a five-mile run leaves you feeling parched in the summer, but not so much in the winter? There’s an answer for that! Spoiler alert: the answer is NOT that you’re any less dehydrated in the winter.
As humans, our bodies respond to our environments to protect against potential illness or harm. In the case of colder environments, our blood vessels constrict to conserve body heat at our cores rather than distributing freely to our extremities. Due to the fact that we maintain core body heat and blood flow, other responses in the body are not triggered as quickly as they usually would be in warmer temperatures. Because of this, our regular thirst sensations are reduced in the winter.
