If you have been eating low carb or keto for very long, you may have discovered that you need extra electrolytes. At first I didn’t believe it because I eat very clean and thought I was getting everything I needed. Well, I’m not one to add much salt to my food and I eat cheese, so I thought I was good on the sodium. I couldn’t figure out why I was getting lightheaded every time I stood up. Like to the point of seeing stars. Of course if you are having lightheadedness you should see a doctor.

Well, long story short, I needed to increase my electrolytes. Especially since I work out daily, I just wasn’t getting what I needed from food sources anymore. There is plenty of sodium in processed food, but when you don’t eat it, you might need to supplement. This article from Diet Doctor further discusses electrolytes and keto.

I found this Key Nutrients electrolyte powder on Amazon and it tastes pretty good. I take it at least once a day, sometime twice a day. While the lemonade flavor is good with just water, it’s amazing a little dressed up. This basil lemonade electrolyte fizz is a fun afternoon cold beverage that can be enjoyed any time of day!

Notes

Don't be afraid to get heavy handed with the basil! I added more because I loved the way it compliments the lemon flavor.
