PRE-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE

  • 1 ripe frozen banana
  • 1 tbs organic cinnamon
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 1 organic medjool date
  • 1 cup organic spinach
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tbs raw cacao powder
  • 1 serving from a clean source of protein of your choice
  • HELPFUL TIP: THIS IS A GREAT PRE-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE TO DRINK 2-3 HOURS BEFORE YOUR WORKOUT. THERE IS A HEALTHY BLEND OF PROTEIN, FATS AND CARBOHYDRATES. THE FAT HELPS SATIATE YOU AND SLOWLY DISBURSE FUEL ACCORDING TO YOUR ACTIVITY LEVEL TOO!

INSTRUCTIONSBlend all ingredients in your blender until smooth and creamy. DELICIOUS!

POST-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE

1 cup cold water

1 cup coconut water

3/4 cup grapes

1 tsp cracked wall chlorella

2 organic medjool dates

1 cup organic dark leafy greens

1 serving from a clean source of protein of your choice

HELPFUL TIP: AFTER STRESSING YOUR BODY FROM A VIGOROUS WORKOUT LESS IS MORE. IT'S BEST TO FEED YOUR BODY  BIO-AVAILABLE FORMS OF CARBOHYDRATES AND AN EASILY DIGESTIBLE SOURCE OF PROTEIN. YOU WILL NOTICE THERE IS NOT MUCH HEALTHY FATS IN A POST WORKOUT SMOOTHIE. WHY? FATS ARE MEANT TO KEEP YOU SATIATED AND SLOW DOWN DIGESTION. AFTER A WORKOUT YOU WANT TO FEED THE BODY FOR MAXIMUM ABSORPTION.

INSTRUCTIONS: Blend all ingredients in a blender until creamy. Enjoy!

 

HAPPY SMOOTHIE MAKING!
