Next Level Smoothie
Forget the norm... This combo packs a superfood punch without tasting like chalky dirt.
Smoothies are fast, easy and delicious. I love prepping mine in advance so when I'm in a rush or need a fast recovery meal post workout, I'm not scrambling with 'what to eat!?'. Make sure when making smoothies that you don't get in the habit of throwing tons of fruit with juice and calling it a day. Just like any other meal, you want your smoothies to be balanced with carbs, protein, fat and loaded with micronutrients + phytonutrients to keep the body energized and efficient.
