Here’s a healthy take on a classic beverage. We’ve swapped the high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavoring for honey and fresh ginger to deliver a potent anti-inflammatory punch, perfect for post-training recovery.

    Hi Andrew,

    I’m struggling with a condition which requires a FODMAP diet, and training.

    Any suggestions? I can’t eat wheat for the carb power, sadly. I want to be an elite athlete but am unsure how much protein I should be taking in, and what other tummy-friendly foods I can branch out into.
