Leading an active life and exercising more are two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, so I want to share with you my favorite post workout smoothie.
I usually add some greens because they’re a good plant based protein source and also are rich in vitamins and minerals that our bodies need. If you’re not used to have green smoothies, I recommend you to start adding spinach, you won’t notice (almost) any difference. Kale is another great option, but it has a stronger taste.
Having this smoothie after an intense workout is great, but you can also have it any other time. I love to have a smoothie for breakfast, as a snack or to replace a meal. If you want to know more about smoothies and make your own recipes, take a look at our eBook Simple Vegan Smoothies.
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle, but you really need to exercise at least 3 times a week if you want to be healthy and feel your best. I’ve never been an active person, but I’m working on it. We can do it! ?
