Nutrition: Protein smoothies

February 2, 2018

 

We are going to be sharing nutrition advice and recipes from now to help get the most out of your training. Here's our starting point: Protein Smoothies...

 

Protein Smoothies are a great way to boost protein in an easy palatable and digestible way, especially in the morning. You can make up your own combinations depending on what you like.


There are so many protein powders on the market, it can be very confusing to decide. Our recommendation would be https://www.foodspring.co.uk

 

Store cupboard staples

 

As well as your protein powder, keeping certain ingredients handy in your cupboard can help to keep you prepared for quick meal on the go. Here is our suggested list:

  • An variety of seeds, flaxseed, pumpkin seed, sesame seed, sunflower seed and chia seed.

  • Cacao powder.

  • Nut and Seed butter - beware, natural fats are high in calories so don’t over do it. A teaspoon at the most.

  • Milk of your choice - personal I prefer goats milk but almond milk or coconut milk are great for smoothies.

  • Frozen berries and fruit.

  • Frozen banana.

  • Medjool dates - for a little extra sweetness. Although again, watch your intake of these as high in sugar.
