Chef Vishal: Curried “Rice”

When I was growing up, a staple in most meals was shok, which essentially is blend of seeds and spices tempered with various vegetables. The end product is a wonderful side dish you can eat with rice, or any type of Indian bread.

“Riced’ cauliflower makes creating classic Indian shoks very easy. If you haven’t combined cauliflower with curry, then you’re missing out. The mint-yogurt help balance the heat coming from the spices to create a truly incredible dish.

BONUS! Sore or achy muscles? This recipe contains turmeric and ginger which are rich in anti-inflammatories to help alleviate sore and achy muscles.

Hyper Hydration

Pre-loading electrolytes (or hyper hydration) has gotten a lot of attention in recent years. Recent studies have shown that hyper hydrating can increase your performance during endurance exercise by increasing the availability of fluids and electrolytes, and it's a practice I've personally seen training benefits from.

Have you ever bonked during a long run and reached for a gel or a chew? There are actually two possible reasons. In most cases, your body needs carbs for fuel. But in some cases, your body is having difficulty circulating water and electrolytes. By pre-loading electrolytes, you help ensure your body has what it needs to deliver fluid to your muscles during exercise. Drastically increasing your consumption of sodium and fluids can help increase circulation of water and nutrients in your blood, so your muscles can be firing on all cylinders.

Nuuntini Testing: Nuun Shandy

The Nuun Shandy was first created after a particularly tough marathon a few years back. We couldn't wait to crack open an ice cold beer at the finish line, but we also knew we needed to rehydrate. But we felt awkward and clumsy holding a bottle of water, a can of beer, and a banana all at once. Instead, we dropped a tab into a can of beer and were pleasantly surprised to find out we loved it! That post-race beer tasted better than ever, and we were replacing lost electrolytes while also enjoying the celebration.

Over the years, we've experimented with different flavor combinations, trying to find what we like best. Click below to find out what our favorites are!

move at noon

​We all know sitting at a desk all day is bad for your health. The 7 mile run or the 60 minute trainer ride before work help, but aren’t enough. The key is to stand up and move for a few minutes several times throughout your work day. Taking the long way to the restroom, going for a walk (or run) at lunch, and taking the stairs instead of the elevator are all easy ways to move more.

And this easy, do-anywhere movement sequence (courtesy of our friends at InHealth Sports Injury and Performance) only takes 5 minutes! It's our daily "muuv at nuun" routine, and it not only gets you out of your chair, but will also help ease tension in your back and shoulders from sitting hunched over at a desk all day.
