​Finding True North at Wanderlust Whistler

As result of our “Find your Adventure” giveaway, Nuun Hydration sent one lucky ambassador (and friend) to Wanderlust Whistler 2018. We were so excited to hand over passes for a long weekend of relaxation and rejuvenation to Kate Gayton! Below is Kate’s Wanderlust Whistler diary:

Yoga, active recovery and setting asides some quiet time to decompress have always been an integral part of my training, and life in general. So to immerse myself and learn more teachings for 4 solid days at Wanderlust Whistler was a fantastic opportunity. Wanderlust’s mission is to find your true north, and after returning home to the beautiful Whistler, BC from 6 months of travelling and riding bikes and hiking most days it was also very welcomed by my body. Furthermore, my adventure buddy Nina would be joining me, so I was looking forward to some quality time with her.

​Watermelon Jalapeno Nuunarita

This year, we’re celebrating our favorite summer fruit by way of a Nuun margarita (or as we like to call it, a Nuunarita)! August 3rd is National Watermelon Day and we’ve mixed up JUST the cocktail for the occasion. Why, oh why do we love watermelon so? Let us count the ways…

1. Watermelon is made up of over 90% water. Bonus points for hydration!
2. It’s the fruit that brings the party. No summer BBQ is complete with watermelon slices.
3. It’s PINK! Come on, it doesn’t get any more fun than that!
4. Watermelon is full of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and antioxidants. #healthpoints
5. It’s delightfully sweet and refreshing after a hot workout.

This blended margarita is the best of all watermelon worlds. It’s refreshing, spicy, and tasty with a dose of Nuun Hydration! Does it get any better than this? (Hint: No, no it doesn’t.)

Nuun and the Ketogenic Diet

Being a lifestyle hydration product, Nuun seeks to use and source ingredients that are clean, and inclusive of as many diets as possible. The Ketogenic (or “Keto”) diet is no exception.

The Keto diet follows the primary principles of limiting carbohydrate intake (to less than 20g or 5% of overall caloric intake per day). This diet focuses on a high-fat, and adequate protein plan to supplement the necessary nutrients and calories needed per day.

Over time, the body adapts to rely on fats for its primary source of energy (vs. carbohydrates). This shift allows the body to tap into fat stores (ketones) for energy rather than glucose. The overall goal is to reach a metabolic state of “ketosis” which is indicative of a certain level of ketones in the blood. Studies have shown that following a keto diet can aid in certain weight loss strategies and help with various body composition efforts.

So where does Nuun fit into all of this?
