You see Gatorade everywhere: in gym vending machines, on the soccer and football fields, and everywhere people are getting fit. We have been led to believe that it is good for us, but the reality is that it is filled with chemically-processed refined sugars (¼ cup in a single serving), artificial dyes, flavors and preservatives. No, thank you!

In my latest Fit Foodie Snippet, I will show you how easy it is replenish your electrolytes. Naturally.
