When I lived in California I had an amazing workout routine. I started everyday with Pilates at 6AM, Yoga at 7AM, and a lift sesh with my Brother at 8AM. We usually wouldn’t lift for more than 45 minutes, so I’d end our routine with a burnout of some sort, whether it be curls, abs, or running for the remaining 15 minutes.
After work, usually around 6PM I had a date with the treadmill for about 30-45 minutes and closed out my day with a beautifully anticipated steam room session before heading home for dinner. Life was good.
Because of this workout routine, I adopted this Super Green Drink. It’s perfect post workout, or you can do what I did, and sip a quarter at a time–which you should be doing anyway if you’re work out is over an hour.
Super Green Drink or Green Monster (raw, vegan, gluten and soy free)
20oz Water or Green Tea
1 Handful of broccoli (stems & all)
1-2 Scoops of protein
1 Scoop Glucose-amine
1 Scoop Flaxseed (golden, grounded)
1 Scoop “Nature Source” Green Enzymes
1 Scoop Super Greens
1/4 Cup GF Oatmeal*
*Post workout I would drink this and eat 1/4 cup of oatmeal for the much needed carbs; however, when I was running late or knew I would be short on time I would put the gluten-free oats in the drink. It thickens it up, and tastes phenomenal with the green tea!
Depending on what is in your fridge, consider adding the following:
Red or Green Cabbage
Obviously Green Drink combinations are endless, and while my favorite recipe is timeless, even now I find myself adding things like Aloe Vera Gel, Apple Cider Vinegar, Turmeric, and Milk Thistle to make them even better.
