CARROT CAKE BEFORE WORKOUT ANYONE?
A delicious and simple pre workout smoothie to help with energy levels
If you are like me, you train early in the morning but not keen on having large meals beforehand, have a small portion of smoothie with an added 1/2tsp of bee pollen and raw cacao nibs.
CARROT CAKE SMOOTHIE
1/3 cucumber and coconut water for electrolytes
1 large carrot
1/4 small sweet potato (if organic wash properly but keep skin on)
1/4 lemon (again if organic and I waxed keep skin on as this is where a lot of the goodness resides
These are all for energy and antioxidants to help mop up free radicals produced during workout.
1/4 tsp cinnamon perhaps more
1bsp of hemp protein powder
1tsp of Maca
Blend blend, blend!
Have a small portion preworkout and leave the rest for straight after.
Leaving bee pollen out will keep it vegan as well.
