It can be a challenge to maintain a healthy lifestyle when you are a person who is constantly on the move. Nutrition can sometimes suffer if you aren’t able to adequately make time for a healthy meal or snack. Luckily, the nutrition Gods created smoothies. Smoothies are a great way to get your protein, fruits and veggies into your diet without a major hassle. Especially if you are like me and hate eating salads, just throw some kale in a smoothie and bam, you can’t even taste it! Smoothies can be used as a meal replacement, healthy snack or the ultimate post workout supplement. I have three smoothie recipes that are not only super yummy but will also help you hit those goals! These recipes are simple to make and usually take a max of 5 minutes, so yes you can hit the snooze button in the morning now that you are saving 20 minutes by making a shake instead.

1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Mango or handful of frozen mango chunks

Mix in Orange Juice and protein powder. Once that is blended then add in the mango and yogurt. Blend until creamy. And Bam, enjoy sunshine in a glass.
Post Workout Goodness
1 TSP of Peanut Butter
1 Scoop of Protein Powder (Chocolate or Vanilla)
