I pretty much have one to two protein smoothies per day. With the intensity of my training, running in excess of 80 miles most weeks plus strength workouts — this is my easy go-to, quick prep meal. Plus packing in 4 or more cups of greens, is a great boost for my system post hard training. This smoothie used a new protein powder I was testing, Amazing Grass Protein Superfood Chocolate Peanut Butter with some of my added spices for an extra boost of healing properties. #FeelAmazingEveryday
Amazing Grass Protein SuperFood contains a unique blend of USDA Organic pea, hemp, chia and quinoa, delivering 20g of complete plant-based protein per serving plus 7 alkalizing organic greens and two-full servings of wholesome fruits and vegetables. Each flavor is also grain-free, paleo friendly, and can be enjoyed alone with water, added to a smoothie or almond, cashew or coconut milk. The line’s unique pea protein is the only available source that is 100 percent grown, harvested and processed in the USA, providing one of the smoothest, best tasting plant-based proteins on the market.
To this super protein I add turmeric, which is a natural anti-inflammatory (hello, please help my leg muscles recover) and has been shown to help with Rheumatoid Arthritis (which I also suffer from) with joint pain and swelling. Also, adding chia packs an Omega, calcium, protein and fiber punch to your diet. And some ground cinnamon to help regulate sugar in the body. This smoothie is quick to make and has so many health benefits for your body.
