NUTRITION FOR TRAINING
This year I have jumped back on the 1/2 marathon race bandwagon. I took a few years off but have decided to do some again which means no messing around with nutrition and training.
Protein shakes are the best! They are low calorie and allow me to get extra protein that my muscles need when I can’t humanly consume it through food alone. I love my protein shakes and I have a few go-to’s but I really wanted to get a bit more variety so I made this one and I love it.
The recipe is quite easy:
For hydration: 1 C coconut water
For iron: 1 C baby spinach
For good fats: 1 Tbsp peanut butter (I make my own)
For protein: 1 scoop protein powder
For yum: 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
For potassium: 1/2 banana
That’s it! Use a good blender to blend it all together. Tastes like a peanut butter cup.
1 C coconut water
1 C raw spinach
1 scoop protein powder
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1. Put all ingredients into a strong blender.
2. Blend until smooth
