Pre-Workout Power Up Smoothie, Protein and Healthy Fat


Pre-Workout Power Up SmoothiePower up your day, your workout or whatever it is you are doing.

This smoothie has the nutrients to get it going. A good quality protein powder, in this case, SP complete, is a key ingredient for a pre-workout, energizing smoothie.

Another important component is the chia seeds. They provide long lasting sustain release energy, because they digest slowly. Chia seeds are also a great source of healthy omega 3 fatty acids, namely ALA, alpha linolenic acid.

Organic Fruit and Leafy Greens

fruit and leafy greens2The fruit and leafy greens provide a host of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The addition of 90% chocolate provides additional nutrients, for example magnesium. I am so happy that many natural health people are talking about the benefits of chocolate. The 90% version has very little added sugar or other additives. It’s the sugar, milk and other junk added to commercial chocolate bars that make them unhealthy.

Nutrient Rich Combination

This is important if you want to achieve beneficial hormone optimization from your workout, like growth hormone and testosterone. Too many carbs can ruin this effect. All that is needed is a few carbs for energy during the workout.

Put it Together

power up smoothie ready to blendStart by soaking the chia seeds in water for about 10 minutes, until they swell up and become soft. Rinse some leafy greens and add them in. I got these greens from a local garden. They do not use pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. All the plants are nourished with compost. Use whatever greens are fresh and available in your area. The add a few squares of chocolate. Raw cacao would be even better. Slice up about half a mango. Cut the leaves off of the strawberries. Put it all in the blender with the protein powder. Top it off with unsweetened almond milk, or coconut milk.

You could also use this as a post-workout smoothie. It will help to replenish protein and nutrients.

I often like to work out at the beach. There are lots of opportunities for exercise, throwing the football, hula hooping, or swimming in the ocean. Any type of workout should be fun. That way you are more likely to actually do it.

    I have to give this question some srieous thought. I am not a nutritionist and everything I am reading fruits and vegetables are staples of a balance meal. You could go on the atkins diet where you consume mainly protein but its not a healthy long term solution. Fruits and Vegetables have high amounts of fiber which makes you feel more fuller. Hit me up on my blog I will continue looking in to this.

    I think that everything published was actually very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?

    I am not saying your content is not good., but suppose you added a headline that makes people desire more?
    I mean Pre-Workout Power Up Smoothie, Protein and Healthy Fat | Alkaline Diet Plan and Health is kinda vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news titles to grab viewers to
    click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit
    more interesting.
