It’s a not-so-well-kept secret in endurance sports that more and more elite athletes are loading up on nitrate-rich foods like spinach and beets to improve performance. We take a look at some of the research behind this, and give a simple and tasty recipe to get you started on improving performance through better nutrition.
We're looking forward to trying Heidi Coulter's Beta Red Apple Yum with Greek yogurt (for protein) as a post-workout refueling treat. This recipe was submitted to our How Did You Make That? Contest. There's still time to send us your favorite recipes with Beta Red or Enduro Bites. We’ve had some great combinations and we want to see what you have up your sleeve. Have a special Beta Red or Enduro Bites 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, We want to know. The best entry gets a sweet Enduro Bites / Beta Red prize package.
