  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp salt


1. Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher.

As written, this recipe will yield approximately the same volume as a 32-oz. bottle of Gatorade and provide virtually the same amounts of calories, sodium, carbohydrates, and sugar.  The potassium in this mixture is significantly higher than in Gatorade.
