As I look forward to the Indy Monumental Marathon in November and my first 50 miler (Land Between the Lakes) in March of 2017 I am trying to figure out the nutrition part of things so as to be best prepared. One of the nutritional resources I have been trying is 33Shake, a Chia gel that only contains 4 ingredients: Chia Seeds (Salvia Hispanica), coconut palm sugar, organic Madagascan vanilla, Himalayan pink salt. To these ingredients, so as to preserve freshness you “add water for a traditional blend, fruit juice for increased carbs, or even fresh coffee for a caffeine hit. Bottom line is they taste great and to date they seem to work great as well. No energy spikes as I get with many gels or GI stress. I will be doing a more thorough review as I use them more.
