While training I have had to figure out a way to keep my nutrition in order and get my body the foods that it needs to perform. This morning I thought I would venture out of my normal breakfast and find a new way to start my day. I was successful! I am now adding a new protein shake to the mix. I would compare this to the Green Machine by Naked Juice, but this is my version:
Put this all in a blender:
- Big handful of spinach
- 1 cup of frozen fruit (I used pineapples)
- 1/2 of a banana (Fresh or frozen)
- 1 cup of coconut water (I used plain, but you could use any flavor)
- 1 scoop of whatever protein you use
You may need to add more liquid if the blender is having a tough time. Play around with the proportions because you may want a different consistency to your shake. You can pretty much do anything with this and add any fruit. Spinach is rich in vitamins and minerals, it is also concentrated in health-promoting phytonutrients such as carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and flavonoids to provide you with powerful antioxidant protection.
