My recovery drink of choice! In preparation of running my 28th marathon in New York City – I have slimmed down by watching what I eat, counting the calories and trying to limit eating and drinking what I love in moderation. My miles have increased and my recovery is so important to being able to get back out there again and hit the pavement with more miles at a faster pace. After going through chemotherapy for my lymphoma this past year my body is really in tune to what fuel I ingest. So the recipe is lots of salads, protein, fruits and water! My whole grains are limited, but I love Heritage cereal in the morning.
We love our Vitamix for juicing and mixing our protein drinks. Best investment ever!
Here is my Power Shake recipe that I zap together in my Vitamix every other day – unless there are high mileage days that just need that extra boost! Try it! You will love it too!
Optional: Mix it up with frozen mango or pineapple too!
Blend it up in your Vitamix or blender
Serve it up cold in a frosted mug!
So yummy and refreshing and it give me a LOT of energy! 🙂
