Some of you contacted me and wanted to know what I have as my post exercise protein shake…
I have to admit, there are times when I choose to have more carbs, depending on how I feel physically and mentally. I listen to what my body is telling me.
Here’s my own post exercise protein shake recipe…
This is my everyday protein shake. Even if it’s my “day off” training I still have it.
a. 25 grams protein (I use an organic protein powder called Vital Protein, vanilla flavour)
b. 1 heaped tablespoon of Vital Greens (supplement powder)
c. 200mls of unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
d. ½ cup frozen blue berries
e. 100 mls water (from the water purifier)
I bung the lot into the blender and that’s it!
Note… the following banana option for me is more of a “once in a while” occasion. When I’ve been an absolute ratbag and accidentally skipped a meal and my blood sugar feels like it’s hit rock bottom. I’ll either add 1 small banana (those little baby ones) or half a banana – if it’s a large one, to the above shake.
I actually look forward to having it each day.
IMPORTANT: I’m NOT an affiliate for these products! I just use them because I like them and they’re not filled with junky fillers and other “nasties” that some supplements contain.
So there you go… that’s my own post exercise protein shake. 🙂
