One of my best travel tips to ensure you feel great throughout your entire trip is to STAY HYDRATED. Keep energy levels up by doubling your water intake the day before a flight and the day after your flight. Recently, I made another trip to a climate where the sun and humidity are seriously intense.
How did we sustain and prepare ourselves for a recent production project in the middle of the jungles of Central America? Vega One and Vega Sport products pushed us to stay healthy and active throughout the entire trip! We had a lot of work to do and we couldn’t let anything slow us down.
Production stocked up on Vega One Bars which we enjoyed in flight, (any seasoned vegan traveller knows Vegan fare can be scarce on planes).
Breakfast was a breeze thanks to our convenient Vega Shaker Cup – highly effective for shaking up Vega All-In-One Packets.
Sometimes we would put the packets in a blender with fruit and fiber – however when we were in a real hurry the Vega Shaker Cup was supreme.
QUICK TIP: Leave the lid ON the shaker cup when you drink it to avoid spillage. Intense sun and temperatures soaring over 100 degrees meant we had to stay hydrated at all times. I did a lot of surf, yoga, photo shoots, stair climbing (our jungle house was 100 feet up a tsunami route), and woke up with the sun each day at 5:30AM. I tested the effects of the Vega Sport Energizer by surfing on a day without taking a packet versus taking one before a surf session. My mind definitely felt more alert, clear and focused on the mornings I mixed a packet with water before surfing and yoga. The Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer has ingredients like green tea, yerba mate, coconut oil and rhodiola, specifically selected to:
Provide immediate and sustained energy
Increase endurance, aerobic and anaerobic capacity
Enhance mental focus and physical recovery
After 11:30AM the intense sun is almost too much to bear if you are not covered in shade/shelter or spending time in the water. After an intense morning of activities we would often recollect after lunch for more excursions, pool hopping and ATVing. Some days we spent hours in the sun. I firmly believe we avoided heat stroke in part thanks to our excellent survival skills, staying hydrated, and taking Vega Electrolyte Hydrators. Changes in altitude and climate are easily combatted with Vega Sport Hydrators to help you adapt. Bonus: The Electrolyte Hydrator tastes ‘berry’ amazing. “Electrolyte Hydrator is formulated with all the essential electrolytes your body needs to stay hydrated during workouts,” it is meant to:
Replenish electrolytes and minerals
Enhance metabolism and alkalinity
Provide antioxidant protection
Special Thanks to Vega One / Vega Sport for fuelling the team on our latest tropical adventure! Summary: Vega products are fantastic because they taste great and they work!
