Workout Recovery Elixer

I’m no fighter, but I try pretty hard to follow Randy Couture’s low alkaline diet because I find it really helps recovery. It’s tough to drink most sports drinks when on this diet though because most contain a lot of sugar and empty calories. Take a look at the diet here:

Here’s my solution! I like to mix a little honey or agave nectar to sweeten up and provide nutritious simple carbohydrates to Trader Joe’s Green Drink. It’s similar to other low-pH drinks, but it’s a lot cheaper. I find the mix works better than a sports drink while helping to flush lactic acid from tired muscles post workout. I’ve been drinking one a day right after training and have noticed reduced soreness. That’s really important since I’m a bit of a wimp!

Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received. If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.
