Here's 10 Vegan Superfoods for the Perfect Breakfast if you're looking to incorporate more into your diet!
Are Smoothies Good Before a Workout?
Food is fuel for our body, it is essential to know what we should put in our body before and after a workout. As long as it’s packed with healthy protein and carbohydrates, your body will benefit from the nutrients.
Drinking a smoothie pre-workout can supply you with the energy to fuel your body during a workout. Drinking a smoothie post-workout can allow your muscles to absorb and use the nutrients provided more efficiently.
Here Are Some Quick Tips To Keep Yourself Nourish and Hydrated:
- Drink a smoothie at least 30 minutes before your workout (1-4 hours pre-workout is ideal)
- Drink a smoothie within 1-hour post-workout
- Drink half a smoothie before a workout and the other half after
- While drinking a smoothie reaps the benefits of essential nutrients, make sure to drink plenty of water.
- Add 1 tbsp of chia seeds in 2 cups of water or coconut water for at least 10-20 minutes for super hydration and extra energy throughout your workout!
- Add a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to your chia water for some flavor and anti-inflammatory properties!
