It doesn't have to look pretty. It just has to taste good!

My favorite way to refuel after a workout is with a green protein smoothie! For optimal muscle recovery, it's best to refuel within 30-60 minutes of vigorous exercise.

Why go green? Leafy greens are high in dietary fiber, and rich in folic acid, vitamin C, potassium , and magnesium, calcium, iron, as well as a host of phytochemicals -- powerful antioxidants associated with reducing risk for cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.  

micronutrients found in leafy greens help replete electrolytes, maintain strong bones, and promote proper neuromuscular innervation.
