Mixing it Up with Mix 1

By Pete Williams

For more than a decade companies have tried to come up with the right mix for post-workout recovery. There have been some decent protein powders, but by the time you get to the blender the window for fueling your muscles often has closed. As for RTDs (ready to drinks) they’re often little more than chocolate milk.

The folks at Mix1, launched from Boulder, Colorado in 2006, have found the happy, well, mix. The all-natural protein shake has a 2-to-1 carb to protein ratio that’s ideal for both pre-workout and post-workout recovery – or as a meal replacement. Unlike other drinks in the category that are kidney-crushing protein bombs, Mix1 has only 15 grams of protein – 10 for its lighter version. As someone who has dealt with a kidney stone from overdosing on protein powders, I’ll never drink anything with a higher protein content again.

We chatted with Mix1 founder Dr. James Rouse during this week’s show, along with Mix1-sponsored athletes Megan Wallin (volleyball) and Marco Hintz (triathlon).
