Amid a global pandemic it’s easy be paralyzed by the what-ifs. There are so many questions that it’s hard to move forward. The same can be said about making decisions in the myriad of sports nutrition options. Now, perhaps, more than ever is a time to take a deep breath. It’s a time to look at the bigger picture, assess what works, what doesn’t, and move forward thoughtfully.
Back to Basics:
Maple syrup is the foundation of all UnTapped nutrition. Instead of using cheap sugars that needs synthetic flavoring and arbitrary supplementation, maple syrup is a flavorful, nutritionally rich carbohydrate forming the base of all our sports nutrition.
Synthetic additives gum up your digestion and slow you down. We rely on real-food ingredients to add variety to your nutrition. Real lemons, real raspberries, real coffee, real chai spices not only have a distinguished real taste, but they deliver macro-nutrients that allow your body to work, facilitate muscle contraction, and let you charge through the day.
Real Fueling Guide:
It’s important as ever to be prepared. If you’re exercising indoors because of time constraints of social ordinances, you’re likely sweating buckets and burning through calories at a prolific rate. If you’re able to get outside, you’re perhaps exploring new areas or find that the typical refueling stations are temporarily closed. It’s time to be prepared to make the most of your time out.
60 minutes before exercise:
1 UnTapped Waffle
1 bottle of Mapleaid, sipped
…with this combination, hunger pangs are satisfied but you’re not stuffed. You’re topping up on a combination of fast acting and slow burning carbohydrates, and you’ll have a tasty infusion of electrolytes.
30 minutes before exercise:
1 UnTapped — Maple, Coffee, or Salted Raspberry
…it’s nearly go-time so a quick 100 calories of maple or caffeinated maple will have you ready to work.
Curious about Caffeine?
Coffee UnTapped takes the same nutritional value of Maple UnTapped and infuses it with organic coffee which provides 27mg of naturally occurring caffeine. Other caffeinated athletic products can be 4-6x as much caffeine which can leave you feeling jittery and anxious. Coffee UnTapped is suggested for early morning workouts or when you need a little more oomph in your output. For longer events, athletes find Coffee UnTapped the perfect fuel for the finish line push.
UnTapped Waffles offer both fast acting and slower burning carbohydrates. They work great to satisfy hunger leading into an event and sate your appetite in longer events. With between 140-160 calories per waffle, they’re easy to digest and won’t fill you up to the point of slowing you down.
