How to Make Quickfix: Better than Gatorade or Powerade and Just Pennies a Serving

Readers, I'll be taking (another!) break from writing for the next few weeks to work on other projects. In the meantime, enjoy this updated post from CK's archives.

Today I want to share an easy and laughably cheap sports drink recipe borrow and modified from the famous 1980's era fitness book Eat to Win. This recipe has served us very well here at Casual Kitchen: it's healthy, contains no HFCS (quite unlike almost all sports drinks), and it replenishes you during and after even the most grueling hot-weather workouts.

You can make this recipe up in seconds for mere pennies, or you can pay as much as $1.50 to $2.50 for a quart-sized plastic jug of heavily advertised, HFCS-laden Gatorade or Powerade. You're welcome.


8 ounces orange juice
24 ounces cold water
1/2 teaspoon salt

Shake well and drink during or after workouts.
