A LOT of people probably still have Kanye’s New Workout Plan on loop with their endless reuses of #balikalindog. What most people looking at getting into shape are missing the point on is that it’s not just about the amounts of what they are eating but more in what they are taking in.
Workouts are as much about recovery as it is the activity. Hours after you’ve cranked out your last rep, your body still keeps burning, breaking down muscle, repairing, and replenishing long after. Post workout recovery smoothies replace nutrients you’ve used up and rebuild muscles. But before you chug down that overpriced, specifically-labeled, post-workout recovery reconstitute of powdered product positioning and marketing strategy, consider something more real and natural.
Mooshi Green Smoothies + Juice Bar introduces its new line of Fitness Blends as post-workout supplementation for fitness buffs. Lean protein takes care of the rebuilding and carbs provide the energy to maximize these processes. These new blends have an excellent carbohydrate to protein ratio along with optimal amounts of antioxidants and phytonutrients, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. These blends, approved by licensed Nutritionist-Dietitian Kyrene Gail Tiu-Ong, RND of Dietwise, allow the replenishment of electrolytes, increase metabolic rate, reduce oxidative stress and prevent fatigue thus promoting faster recovery to keep up with rigorous workout schedules.
The Berry Protein Smoothie contains soy milk for a base which is an excellent source of protein. It is also low in saturated fat, and its phytosterols also help reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. The strawberries blended into the mix pack much fruit flavor and, with the blueberry topping, antioxidants which help reduce muscle damage. Bananas add body along with a good dose of potassium to prevent muscle cramping and stiffness. Spinach yogurt, chia seeds, and a whey protein boost push the protein content while walnuts add crunchy texture and good fat.
While peanut butter may be high carb, it’s tasty, satisfying, and contains healthy fats and protein that help meet a gym junkie’s nutritional needs. Soy milk, again, provided the protein-packed, non-dairy base with organic peanut butter adding a nutty flavor. Banana adds weight with its classic PB-complementary profile. Banana slices, granola, and chia seed toppings add nutritious texture, too.
If you like Pina Coladas and getting a good sweat, the ultimate island flavor duo of coconut water & pineapple in the Tropical Protein Blast would be the flavor fix for you. Pineapple is also an excellent source of Vitamin C and fiber. Banana and spinach yogurt figure in for heft with whey for a protein boost. Coconut and chia seed toppings finish the drink.
All their #GreenSmoothies have absolutely no sugar added and take the natural sweetness from the fruit and great flavor from the expert combination of the other natural ingredients. Recover and replenish after #workout with #Mooshi #Fitness Blends.
