Green Powders and Nitrates

So I'm sure most of you have seen that dietary nitrates (not the kind from processed meats) improve sports performance if taken before a workout.

I wasn't vegan then, but I can tell you that you just have to get used to eating things cold. I got soo used to it that now I eat my leftovers cold all the time lol. To mak...
