(topped with my Lemon Poppyseed protein cookie)
After a long, exhausting workout or run, my body craves replenishment. If you’re anything like me, my hunger doesn’t set in until at least 30 minutes after my workout concludes. Therefore, right after finishing my workout, my body needs primarily hydration with a kick of nutrients–nothing super heavy. I throw these ingredients into a blender for the perfect post-workout smoothie:
-2 Cups of filtered water (I filter my water with a Berkey filter)
-1 Tablespoon of spirulina (a robust, nutrient dense powdered sea plant)
-1/2 scoop of vanilla protein (I use Jay Robb’s vanilla protein)
-1/2 cup of fresh or frozen pineapple (pineapple contains enzymes that minimize bruising and aid in recovery)
Blend, enjoy, replenish!
