Pre & Post-Exercise Smoothie

Smoothies are an excellent choice for pre & post-exercise meal. They are packed with vital nutrients, protein and they are easy for the body to breakdown and absorb.  Smoothies are also a great choice for breakfast or whenever you feel like a healthy 'pick me up' or treat during the day.

Smoothies are simple & quick to make. You have a meal in a glass ready in a few minutes. :)

Here are two of my favourite smoothies: 

Very Berry Smoothie

1 cup of water
1 cup of spinach
1 banana
1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1/2 inch peeled ginger root
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1 tablespoon of goji berries
1 tablespoon of plant-based protein 

Green Power Smoothie

1 cup of water
1 cup of kale leaves
1/4 avocado
1/4 small pineapple
1 tablespoon of plant-based protein
1 teaspoon of wheatgrass powder
A few brazil nuts or almonds  
A few fresh mint leaves

Simply blend all the ingredients together and then sip slowly. Treat your smoothie as a meal.
