From Katie Compton's Beta Red Brownies to Matt Cusack's Beta Red Orange Cranberry Muffins and Kelly Newlon's Beta Red Limeade, I've gotten to try some great combinations. I now want to see what you have up your sleeve. Have a special Beta Red recipe that you've come up with for pre-workout? Or maybe something to fuel day-long adventures or races? How about a killer post-workout treat? Whatever it is, I want to know.
Turmeric has a long list of healthy benefits, but what most attracted me are its’ strong anti-inflammatory properties.
These Beta Red Orange Cranberry Muffins are a great pre- or post-workout snack. We substituted isomaltulose for regular sugar to make these muffins blood-sugar friendly. Like traditional sugar (sucrose), isomaltulose is a naturally-ocurring disaccharide. However, unlike traditional sugar, isomaltulose is broken down slowly and releases glucose and fructose into the bloodstream gradually. This allows you to have longer-term energy and avoid the blood-sugar roller coaster experienced with traditional sugar. This makes them more effective for fueling hard training sessions.
