Ways to Get Your Electrolytes (That Aren’t Sports Drinks)

Published: (Updated: ) in Health News by .

When we talk about “getting enough electrolytes,” we usually mean the big three: sodium, potassium, and magnesium. There are many others, including calcium, chloride, and bicarbonate, but the big three are the ones targeted by supplement and sports nutrition companies. In part, that’s because sodium especially, but also potassium and magnesium, are lost through sweat. Athletes need to replenish these electrolytes during and after hard workouts or endurance outings in order to maintain optimal hydration and performance. Sodium and potassium work together to manage fluid balance throughout the body and facilitate muscle contractions and nerve firing. Magnesium is critical for cellular energy production and the transport of sodium and potassium across cell membranes. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail about the other functions of electrolytes in the body since Mark recently covered the topic in his Electrolytes 101 post. Suffice it to say that if you don’t maintain the proper levels of electrolytes, you’re in a world of hurt. Should I Be Taking Electrolyte Supplements? Not everyone needs to supplement with electrolytes, but everyone needs to get the right amount. Your kidneys do a good job keeping electrolytes in balance by retaining or excreting specific electrolytes as needed. However, the kidneys can only do their job if you provide enough electrolytes to begin with, and there’s the rub. Even Primal folks who consume abundant produce and animal products may struggle to get enough electrolytes from their food due to mineral-depleted soil. Paleo godfather Loren Cordain speculates that potassium intake in particular lags behind our biological needs. Furthermore, if you’ve jumped on the ketogenic train, you need more electrolytes than the average person. When you drop your carb intake, insulin secretion decreases accordingly. This triggers ketone production as well as a rapid flush of electrolytes. Failure to replenish lost electrolytes, particularly sodium, is probably the number one culprit behind the dreaded keto flu. Sports drinks are not the best way to up your electrolyte intake, though. Most of them are designed to provide energy (read: sugar) and hydration first and foremost. They probably won’t offer the amount of electrolytes you want, plus they usually contain other undesirable ingredients you don’t need. Luckily, it’s easy to up your electrolyte intake with better, more Primal-friendly sources. I know meditation is good for me, but I don’t know how to start. I’ve tried to meditate before, but my mind is too busy. It sounds easy, but it feels hard. Not sure what the hype is all about?

How Much Sodium, Potassium, and Magnesium Do You Need? Sodium: The current recommended daily intake for adults is 1,500 mg per day, but that’s probably not enough for most people. The sweet spot seems to be between 4 and 6 grams per day for adults who do not have salt-sensitive hypertension or kidney disease. Potassium: … Continue reading “Ways to Get Your Electrolytes (That Aren’t Sports Drinks)”

Gluten-free, Paleo, and Primal Cinco de Mayo Recipes

Published: (Updated: ) in Health News by .

A lot of people use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to hit up their favorite taco shop and kick back with a margarita, completely unaware of the historical significance. Did you know that May 5th marks the anniversary of the day that Mexico drove out French military in 1862? Now you know why you’re clinking your salt-rimmed glasses and piling on the guacamole. While there’s nothing wrong with a meal of Mexican food, it might be tough to stick with your eating style if you’re picking up takeout. Here are 6 Mexican-inspired recipes that you can whip up on May 5th, whether you’re following a gluten-free, paleo, or Primal lifestyle. Shrimp and Cauliflower Rice Bowls Recipe An artfully arranged rice bowl is a hearty meal that’s packed with a variety of colors, flavors, textures, and even temperatures. The thing is, the good stuff usually sits on top of a packed bed of rice, which could push your carbs over the edge if you’re trying to keep them low. Riced cauliflower is an easy substitute that creates just as satisfying a bowl as the real thing. While it looks like a lot of effort, this shrimp and cauli-rice bowl recipe comes together in just a few minutes. Get the recipe here. Keto Burrito Recipe Everyone loves a good burrito. They’re hearty, filling, and you can stuff them with whatever you’re in the mood to eat. Wrap them up, and they make a convenient and flavorful meal on the go. Can you have burritos when you’re keto, though? When you’re keeping your carbs low, good burritos can seem out of reach. Traditional flour tortillas send your carb counts through the roof, and inflammatory grains drain you of all of your energy. Other store-bought tortilla options are either just as carby, they have questionable ingredients, or they simply just don’t hold up. We found a way. This keto burrito recipe has all of the flavor you’re looking for, without the carb-loaded carrying case. Instead, we use a thin, crepe-like egg pancake that compliments any burrito ingredient combination you can dream up. Get the recipe here.    Egg Tacos with Avocado and Lime Recipe These aren’t fried eggs, nor are they scrambled. The eggs in these tacos are just slightly set, with a warm, runny yolk that is barely scrambled into the whites. Slide one of these gently cooked eggs into a warm tortilla, top with cool avocado and lime and slices of jalapeno and you’ve got the perfect breakfast taco. Although these egg tacos are delicious for dinner, too. Get the recipe here.  Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas Recipe The whole point of sheet pan meals is to make life easier by delivering a flavorful, balanced meal to your table with very little cooking and cleanup involved. These sheet pan steak fajitas deliver on all counts. Strips of steak, bell pepper and onions served with avocado and salsa is a delicious mix of protein, colorful vegetables and healthy fat. Everything cooks together at … Continue reading “Gluten-free, Paleo, and Primal Cinco de Mayo Recipes”
