Hydration-how do you rehydrate after a killer workout, or during a killer workout?! I have tried many things (sports drinks, tablets, powders etc) some are WAY to sugary for me, some are too fizzy for me and some are just right.... haha a little "goldie locks and the 3 bears" for ya!
I reached out to Skratch Labs after finding them at a local running shop. Like I said I had tried other tablet type water hydration things and they taste great however they add a little fizz to my water and while running that makes me burp and not the most pleasant, I do like them as a recovery drink though. Anyway back to skratch labs! I was so excited when Skratch Labs agreed to send me their 20 pack of assortment flavors 4 each of lemons + limes, orange, raspberry, pineapple, and matcha green tea + lemons (does contain caffeine).
Here is a little info I took from the website for you:
This is a sports drink containing simple sugars, electrolytes, and only real fruit for flavor. We originally developed it for professional athletes who were dissatisfied with the sports drinks available to them. To quell their complaints we started tinkering in our kitchen and in the field, making our own drink mix from scratch without any coloring agents, artificial sweeteners, synthetic flavoring agents, or other excess chemicals. The result is light tasting no-nonsense sports drink, that you can drink anytime you're sweating.
+ non-GMO + gluten free + dairy free + vegan + kosher + delicious
All flavors vary between 80-90 calories per packet. What I also love is I can read all the ingredients!
I tried all 5 flavors before I decided to write my review.... my order of favorites Lemons + limes, Raspberry, Pineapple, Oranges, matcha green tea + lemons.
Lemons + limes is my ALL time favorite it is sooooo refreshing and has such a great taste! The next 3 are pretty much an even tie for second place lol. I have noticed that I like it better when the water is cold/out of the fridge and not room temp. I'm not a fan of the matcha green tea, I don't like green tea to begin with but I went into it with an open mind.... but it's just not for me.
Anyway if you are looking for a GREAT hydration mix I HIGHLY suggest Skratch Labs!
Please leave a comment, I would love to chat!
What changed for you that made you decide to run?
