Smooth

Hey all!

It is no secret that I am a workout junkie. In my humble opinion, there is no better feeling than completing an intense sweat session. Over the past year or so, I have become completely obsessed with Body By Simone. The studio offers classes in both cardio and strength training. The combination of both has really helped to get me strong and feeling good!

Usually, after a good workout, I like to replenish my body with a protein smoothie of some sort. When making a smoothie at home, try to stick to this equation:

  • 1/4 fruit (1/2 banana, 1/8 cup pineapple
  • 1/2 veggies (greens, carrots, cucumber etc.)
  • 1/4 liquid (water, coconut water, milk of choice –coconut/almond etc)
  • ice

I always like to add protein powder, chia seeds, stevia, green powder, and sometimes 1/4 avocado or 1 TBS nuts.
