Quick Nutritional Breakdown
Sweet and colourful. Raspberries are high in vitamin C, are high in antioxidants and also rich in potassium which is good for the heart and blood pressure. Frozen or fresh it doesn’t matter.
High in the good fats, high in minerals high in fibre and keeps your tummy satisfied for a long time. This will stave off your hunger. Also high in potassium which balances the fluids and electrolyte levels in the body.
Spinach is high in iron, which helps the body to maintain high energy levels necessary for you to have a decent workout and not be totally drained for the rest of the day.
A natural carb source, which provides you with quick releasing energy.
The building blocks for muscle repair. We went with one scoop of ‘ON Nutritions Gold Standard Whey French Vanilla flavor‘, mainly because it doesn’t overpower the flavour from all of the other ingredients in the smoothie.
Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids. You may be alarmed at the word ‘fat’ but these are the good fats, saturated and trans fats are the bad ones. Introducing olive oil into your diet is good for your heart and cardiovascular health.
High in protein and full of probiotics for a healthy gut. Probiotics are bacteria microbes that help improve your digestive function and your immune system.
