Hope you’re enjoying your Wednesday! This week is flyin’.
It’s important if you’re working out, you realize that you’re putting (good) stress on your muscles, which can sometimes lead to oxidative stress. To help optimize your body’s recovery process it’s important to include some antioxidants, like blueberries, dark green veggies, or nuts to help combat that oxidative stress. This smoothie is high in antioxidants AND protein, and it makes for a great recovery snack.
The deets: Did I just say “deets?”
-1 scoop Vega chocolate sport protein, 30g protein (for low FODMAP take a little less than half of the scoop so the pea protein is still compliant, and add some liquid egg whites for extra protein if needed)
-1 tbsp PB, 4 g protein; 8 g (good) fat (over half is heart-healthy monounsaturated fat; and ~30% is polyunsaturated fat) source
-1 cup blueberries
-1/2 cup raspberries
-handful of leafy greens
-1/2 cup plain, lactose-free yogurt (for low FODMAP) OR probiotic Greek yogurt
-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla almond milk is good, too)
BLEND & serve 🙂
Top with some almonds and strawberries for fun
Hope you enjoy your day! Today is nutrition homework day for me. Keep moving forward!
