Green Recovery Smoothie
Celery and banana are rich in the electrolytes Sodium and Potassium (which you lose when you sweat). Together with the proteins in the hemp powder and nut butter, they are the perfect ingredients in a recovery drink. Keep hydrated and drink this Green Recovery Smoothie after a workout for best results.
1 celery stem with leaves
1 ripe banana, peeled
1 kiwi, peeled
1/2 avocado, stoned
1 lime, juice
1 tbsp hemp protein powder, optional
1 tbsp almond butter or soaked almonds
1 cup coconut water or plant milk of your choice
Mix all ingredients in a blender with a few ice cubes until smooth.
Every year during the summer and into the fall I find a new way to challenge myself physically and mentally by venturing into new arenas of health and fitness.
This summer I’ve decided to dedicate my time to yoga and running.
This week I begin training for a 5k and in the coming weeks I’ll find a race to participate in once I reach my goal.
Should be a fun journey - and a tough one too.
Although I love running, I hate it as well so this should be interesting.
At least the yoga will help me with soreness and injury prevention ;)
I’ll update as I go along - the hardest part is getting started.
Wish me luck!
