10 Things Better Than A Sports Drink


Sports drinks are commonly consumed for all kinds of athletes, but even those who don't work out very much like to drink them. Why? Because they are delicious and "quench your thirst!"

But even for athletes who drink these before/during/after their workout or activity, there are other foods and drinks that are BETTER than a sports drink. 

Better in what ways? 

According to Huffington Post and AdvoCare, these alternatives are better for your health, rehydration, replenishing, recovery, energy, level of potassium (electrolytes lost during high sweat loss), and calorie intake.

DIY Car Kit Ideas: List of Items

A DIY car kit is not the same thing as an emergency kit - they serve different purposes.

A true Emergency Kit should go in the back of the trunk, including items such as band-aids, Neosporin, and other trauma or survival aids. On the contrary, DIY Car Kits have non-emergency items ---but used for your own personal "emergencies," such as spilling ketchup on your shirt or a sudden headache when on the go.

**A DIY Car Kit should be in a small to medium sized container, with a zipping or buckling component to ensure the items stay inside. It can be a flimsy material bag, or a sturdy plastic container. But make sure it is small enough that it will not take up a lot of space in your back seat. The ideal size would be able to fit underneath the seat or on the floorboard.

See the items below to configure your own Car Kit according to what YOU think you'll need "in case of emergency!"
