I’ve been wearing Roka wetsuits for triathlon for the past five years and they have been a terrific for my swimming speed and comfortability. When I learned they were expanding beyond wetsuits and goggles and introducing eyewear, I immediately got a pair of their sunglasses, which I have been wearing for the past four months. No matter how hard I try, I can’t shake them off my head, which is great since I am always on the move. All Roka products are high tech, performance focused, with functional design.

SaltStick Caps, Buffered Electrolyte Salts
SaltStick Caps are my go-to for training and racing. They reduce heat stress, muscle cramping, and maintain electrolyte levels. SaltStick offers the ONLY electrolyte capsules, liquid add-ins and chewable tablets that were formulated to closely resemble the electrolyte profile lost during activity: sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium.

My other go-to fueling and hydration resource is Nuun Hydration. I simply add their hydration tablets to my handheld water bottle. It tastes great, there are lots of amazing flavors. I’m currently obsessed with their Watermelon Sport Hydration and The Blackberry Vanilla REST. Nuun began as the first company to separate electrolyte replacement from carbohydrates. It is a healthy, hydrating beverage without all of the extra sugar and additives. Nuun Hydration uses clean ingredients that are non-GMO, gluten free and vegan.
For nearly a decade, I have been using these plant based superfood ingredients, adding them to smoothies, including their all in one organic essential superfood blends with proteins, greens, probiotics and enzymes for post workout recovery or simply for breakfast or an afternoon snack. I also add their Maca for Adaptogens, Camu Camu for extra Vitamin C, and Cacao.
