The Winter Olympics are taking center stage and while you won't be in Sochi to cheer on Team USA, you can create your own Olympic experience. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a list of the best ways to enjoy the Olympics without actually being there.
Athletes know that one thing is more important than anything else, hydration. While Olympic athletes always have to be properly hydrated, it is important for every walk of life, whether you are training or just getting up to start a new day. SOS Rehydrate has created a healthy way to hydrate as well as making it easy to use as you can pour the SOS Rehydrate power into a water bottle and off you go. Amazingly SOS Rehydrate is comparable to an IV Drip, the blueberry powder mix combines the right balance of electrolytes with no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, flavors or colors. If you want to make sure you are always hydrated and you don’t want all of the unhealthy ingredients that so many sports drinks contain, turn to SOS Rehydrate and enjoy all of the healthy natural flavor! For more information visit SOS Rehydrate.
Even Olympic athletes crave a snack once in a while and choosing properly is always on their mind. Yogen Früz has created a new frozen yogurt flavor that will satisfy any sweet tooth without making you feel to guilty. Yogen Früz recently introduced Caramel Latte, a low-fat twist of a latte that is creamy and rich while also being kosher and gluten-free that is also a natural source of protein, calcium, and contains probiotics. Yogen Früz is just about the perfect snack to take of that craving while still allowing you to live a healthy and active lifestyle! For more information visit Yogen Fruz.
