Whey Protein Smoothie Bowl

Here is my go-to post workout meal. It has the 2 most important nutrients your body needs after an intense workout: high quality protein (for muscle building and recovery) and unrefined carbs (to replenish your glycogen stores).

(**If you take BCAA’s, add in as well. BCAA’s promote muscle growth and recovery. I always add a scoop in.)

It’s also loaded with essential fats,vitamins, and minerals. Not to mention it’s super refreshing after a good sweat sesh. Feel free to top with as many toppings as you can- the more the merrier!

  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
