Smoothies are a great way to infuse your morning with a ton of nutrition.
On mornings that I will be doing a vigorous bodyweight workout, I need to eat something, but solids take too long to digest.
I usually blend up a delicious smoothie chock full of protein from a non-powder source, greens from a concentrated green food powder, EFA's from Cod Liver Oil, fruit for carbs and fiber and a scoop of an amino acid pre-workout supplement.
Here is a general recipe to follow:
1/2 - 1 cup lowfat cottage cheese or greek yogurt
1 tbsp green food powder
1 tsp cod liver oil
1 scoop Scivation Xtend (or whatever pre-workout supplement you choose)
1/4 - 1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
Blend and drink immediately
