Recipe: What’s in my Super Green Smoothie?
What is in your smoothie?
Most athletes make smoothies with zero live ingredients in them and if you are eating this on a daily basis you are not getting a lot of nutrition.
Smoothies are a great way to get a lot of calories in quickly along with some good healthy vitamins and minerals- IF you are adding better ingredients!
It makes a huge difference in recovery and energy after training, not to mention all the good greens, fats and antioxidants you can get without cooking.
You may notice there are not as many fruits in my smoothie recipe. I choose to limit my sugar intake daily, even from fruit, to help stabilize my blood sugar. If I’m feeling low on energy, I will throw in a banana and some berries or an apple to get some extra carbohydrates from a healthy source.
I prefer to get my carbohydrates more from vegetables.
Since I have done this, my energy stays consistent throughout the day and I don’t have highs and lows in my blood sugar which helps stabilize my energy and mood.
I check the labels of every product I use and look for products that have the fewest number of ingredients to limit my toxins as much as possible. If I don’t know what an ingredient is, I look it up and learn about it. Many times it’s a toxic filler or emulsifier that I just don’t need to be consuming.
Protein powders are the worst. Most are filled with “crapola.”
You can see the protein powder I use below is from grass fed goats and has 3 ingredients.
I also LOVE the Paleo Valley 1 ingredient Grass Fed Bone Broth Protein.
I stay away from plant proteins that cause gas and bloating.
Never use soy protein because of the terrible absorption rate and you need twice as much as whey to get what you need, not to mention most soy in our country is genetically modified!
Feel free to add almond butter or any other fun healthy ingredients you may like.
