    when you mix the cream cheese and nut butter together in about equal parts it kind of whips up (I use a fork and just a small dish) almost moose like. I add stevia cause I am usually craving a sweet treat, but it doesn't need it.

    hey pebbles, curious whether P & V were especially concerned with sodium in particular or the general depletion of electrolytes. i've noticed that when i start to feel a little off coconut water seems to help a lot. it has minimal amounts of sodium and magnesium, but the dominant one is potassium. i wonder if it has something to do with the consequential potassium depletion discussed in the article being fixed or if its more to do with reestablishing electrolyte balance as a whole. thoughts?

    Someone on Facebook recommended almond butter, butter, and coconut oil melted and mixed, then refrigerated to harden. Going to try it tonight. Going to do 1 part of each.

    The way I read what they are saying, is that your body will begin to steal potassium from your muscles as a reaction to the rapid loss of sodium. So it makes sense that the influx of potassium from the coconut water would make you feel better. The best bet would be to keep sodium levels up thereby keeping potassium levels up in the first place.

    What is the best brand or way to get coconut water?

    doesn't coconut water generally have sugar/reasonably high carbs?

    15g in the Zico tetrapak so yes, one has to carb budget accordingly.

    I don't know. I was interested in balancing electrolytes. I like to use bullion to increase sodium (for leg cramps) but I don't like the water retention that comes with it.

    Sorry I am late with this - different timezone I suspect.

    Ddraig, You might want to ring the venue in advance and check. In my part of the world a homemade hamburger would still typically contain breadcrumbs used as a binder. Even if it didn't, they may well have used a commercial herb mix with additives, or their special secret flavouring may be a bit of soy sauce, or it arrives topped with their house special - beer fried onions.

    I can't do gluten, so in your situation I would either pay for the steak myself or take a meal with me. Steak and salad (no dressing, no marinade, no sauce, no chips) is the only thing I will eat prepared by others. Turning up with a meal in a container only feels awkward the first time, I do it regularly and you just to use a bit of chutzpah. Remember, it is your company that people want. The other trick is letting the host know, and turning up after the main meal has been eaten, so you can eat at home beforehand.
