An excellent gluten-free option, brown rice forms a solid base for on-the-go power meals. This is due to it being rich in B vitamins, minerals, iron and dietary fiber, all of which are good for heart health, digestion and balanced cholesterol levels. It’s rich manganese content, which, among other things, converts carbohydrates and protein into energy, makes brown rice a natural fuel that can be consumed pre, mid and post workout.
Beets are at the top of the nitrate list and carry a host of other vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that our body needs. Proven to boost blood flow, improve mental clarity and increase stamina, it’s no surprise beets are regularly consumed by athletes and health conscious individuals alike.
The tender and tangy leaves of Arugula also pack a nutritional punch. Just like beets, Arugula delivers loads of nitrates that help with muscle oxygenation during exercise. It also contains antioxidant properties and is good for improving metabolic functions, strengthening the brain and keeping skin healthy.
