​5 Reasons We’re Opting Outside This Black Friday

At Nuun, we believe that moving more + proper hydration are catalysts to help you thrive through life. Although this may sound obvious, our actions in society are counter to these fundamentals and as a result, making us unhealthier.

Think about the headwinds we face everyday when it comes to movement alone. We live in a box (our home). We likely drive in a box (automobile) to work and sit in a box (office), only to stare at a box (computer and cell). Then we repeat the drive home back to our box and sit and stare at a box (TV/computer). Most people live a sedentary lifestyle, indoors, for 20+ hours every single day.

This Black Friday, Nuun is encouraging our team to counter society’s sedentary lifestyle and pause on our shopping indulgence by opting outside. Our friends at REI started this movement a couple of years ago by closing their doors on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The intent was to give up on shopping for the day and just get outside. Think of it as healing for our body and our planet. Let’s be real, we all know that it is pretty difficult to get outside without moving.

Here are 5 reasons to opt outside this Thanksgiving weekend:

Chef Vishal: Curried “Rice”

When I was growing up, a staple in most meals was shok, which essentially is blend of seeds and spices tempered with various vegetables. The end product is a wonderful side dish you can eat with rice, or any type of Indian bread.

“Riced’ cauliflower makes creating classic Indian shoks very easy. If you haven’t combined cauliflower with curry, then you’re missing out. The mint-yogurt help balance the heat coming from the spices to create a truly incredible dish.

BONUS! Sore or achy muscles? This recipe contains turmeric and ginger which are rich in anti-inflammatories to help alleviate sore and achy muscles.

Hyper Hydration

Pre-loading electrolytes (or hyper hydration) has gotten a lot of attention in recent years. Recent studies have shown that hyper hydrating can increase your performance during endurance exercise by increasing the availability of fluids and electrolytes, and it's a practice I've personally seen training benefits from.

Have you ever bonked during a long run and reached for a gel or a chew? There are actually two possible reasons. In most cases, your body needs carbs for fuel. But in some cases, your body is having difficulty circulating water and electrolytes. By pre-loading electrolytes, you help ensure your body has what it needs to deliver fluid to your muscles during exercise. Drastically increasing your consumption of sodium and fluids can help increase circulation of water and nutrients in your blood, so your muscles can be firing on all cylinders.

Nuuntini Testing: Nuun Shandy

The Nuun Shandy was first created after a particularly tough marathon a few years back. We couldn't wait to crack open an ice cold beer at the finish line, but we also knew we needed to rehydrate. But we felt awkward and clumsy holding a bottle of water, a can of beer, and a banana all at once. Instead, we dropped a tab into a can of beer and were pleasantly surprised to find out we loved it! That post-race beer tasted better than ever, and we were replacing lost electrolytes while also enjoying the celebration.

Over the years, we've experimented with different flavor combinations, trying to find what we like best. Click below to find out what our favorites are!
