I love smoothies! They are great for a quick, protein-filled, nutritional breakfast that you can make and run with. Here are three of my favorite smoothies that I have found are great for workouts (pre and post). Don't they look delicious?
This smoothie has the necessary carbohydrates you need to fuel your body before a workout. It also has banana for potassium to help keep your muscles from cramping or getting too sore, cinnamon for detox and increased metabolism, and just a hint of maple syrup to give you yummy minerals such as magnesium and iron.
My personal favorite, this smoothie tastes like a blueberry pancake. Cashews offer some protein for a great post-workout snack, bananas for potassium, blueberries for antioxidants and necessary vitamins, cinnamon for increased metabolism, and just a little carbohydrate to keep you full.
This smoothie is best for after you workout as it is packed full of protein to rebuild muscles. The sea salt contains a lot of essential minerals that you need in your diet. By adding sea salt to your smoothie, it will help with any soreness felt later on as well as muscle cramping and rebuilding. Cocoa powder also contains many minerals and makes the smoothie taste like a chocolate dream.
I hope you try these smoothies, and be sure to let me know which one is your favorite.
Which are you more likely to try?
I hope you are having a blessed and beautiful day!
Until the next time,
