Recovery Green Smoothie

DSC_0290 copy

After an intense training session there’s nothing more your body needs than the proper nutrition to refuel and repair the muscle tissue and replace the electrolytes you’ve lost. One of the easiest ways to get in the electrolytes and protein in a fast, convenient form is to prepare a smoothie soon after your training session is over (preferably within 30 minutes if possible).

Ingredients:

Directions:  Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix.

Nutritional Benefits:

Kale (Contains more iron per calorie than beef, as well as calcium and Vitamin K)

Mango (Vitamin C & Vitamin A help keep your immune system strong, and most importantly they are simply delicious)

Banana & Himalayan Sea Salt (electrolyte replenishing, potassium & sodium)

Almond milk (great alternative to dairy, contains calcium and Vitamin D)

Sunwarrior Blend protein (muscle repairing amino acids)

Chia Seeds (Contain more Omega-3 fats than salmon, gram for gram, and tons of antioxidants)

Hemp Seeds (perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 Linoleic Acid and Omega-3 Linolenic Acid – for cardiovascular health & general strengthening of the immune system)
