When should I eat Fuel For Fire?
Anytime as a convenient, delicious snack or a pre/post-workout fuel source on race, competition or game day!
Fuel For Fire Smoothies make the perfect addition to your kid's lunch box, and prove handy to toss into your own lunch bag, backpack, gym bag or car for an anytime, anywhere fruit and protein smoothie snack.
Athletes that use Fuel For Fire pre-workout typically consume one of our smoothies 30-60 minutes before a workout, but the exact timing really depends on your own digestion and experience with pre-activity fueling. Experiment a bit and you'll find your ideal timeframe. After a workout, Fuel For Fire ideally should be consumed within 30 minutes to ensure that your body gets a balance of protein, carbs and nutrients it needs to restore depleted glycogen reserves, promote muscle recovery, and perform again tomorrow.
Can I use Fuel For Fire as part of my nutrition plan to train for an endurance event (marathon, triathlon, etc. )?
Absolutely! Many triathletes, runners and cyclists have made Fuel For Fire a critical part of their training and pre- and post-race nutrition, with great results. Depending on the length of the event, Fuel For Fire can be used alone or in conjunction with other fuel sources to ensure proper nutrition. For longer events, the fructose in a Fuel For Fire can be a nice balance to many glucose-based energy gels, allowing your body to benefit from multiple carbohydrate sources. As with any fuel source, we advise you to incorporate Fuel For Fire into your training regimen before using it for the first time on race day.
What type of protein is in Fuel For Fire?
We use whey protein isolate for the 6 flavors in our original Protein Smoothies.
Our 3 Plant-Based, Vegan Smoothies use a 10 grams of blended pea and brown rice proteins.
Whey protein is derived from milk and is considered by exercise scientists and sports nutritionists to be the gold standard for post-workout recovery, as it is a quickly absorbed, high quality source of essential branch chain amino acids that are immediately available to promote muscle recovery.
Is Fuel For Fire safe for kids?
Absolutely. Fuel For Fire is a great alternative to the high-sugar, empty calorie drinks and snacks that so many kids consume. Parents can feel good knowing that their kids are getting protein alongside the fruit carbohydrates inside every Fuel For Fire Smoothie. Kids seem to love squeezing their food these days, so Fuel For Fire is right up their alley in a convenient, portable squeeze pouch.
Does Fuel For Fire need to be refrigerated?
