I’m not someone who can exercise on an empty stomach so always try to start my day with a smoothie — often in place of brekkie but sometimes as well as... depends on my schedule! This super charged green smoothie recipe not only tastes delicious (I promise, though I know it looks like pond slime...) but is easy and CHEAP, and is full of good stuff to charge you through your workout and will boost up those iron levels — super important for us menstruating women and you other anaemic types like me.
You can switch in whichever protein powder you like, I've tried my fair share and really rate Free Soul vegan protein blend. It’s a pea and hemp protein blend with no soy or lactose, and it tastes delicious, like strawberry, and is unlike so many which taste all chalky and gross. It’s my go to for smoothies like this one…
big handful of spinach
2 big spoonful of Free Soul vegan protein blend
a tsp turmeric
splash of milk
tsp chia seeds
a tbsp nut butter
blitz all together until smooth in a processor and enjoy pre- or post-workout.
