My Post-Workout Smoothie
I'm sharing with you one of my go-to smoothie recipes that I often have after I train. It’s important to capitalize on consuming a meal, snack or smoothie that will replenish energy and provide protein for optimal muscle tissue building following your workout.
The beauty of making your own is that you can avoid junk ingredients that many bought shakes will often have. These extra ingredients that are difficult to pronounce, hinder your body’s ability from attaining maximum absorption and muscle repair. Don’t wait too long to eat after you train (within 30-60 min.) in order to prevent your body from using your hard earned muscle tissue for energy. I will often resort to a DIY protein smoothie with at least 20g of protein and have it within 30 min. of my workout. After you’ve exercised, you break down muscle tissue, so it is vital to consume some quality food with protein and mega nutrients to best assist in the repair and recovery your body needs for optimal gains.
I use a lot of power foods in this - be sure to watch to the very end of the video for superfood ingredient benefits!
