Shake it out! Two Nutritious Shakes for Triathletes


One of the things to consider after exercise or training and a good way to start your recovery is to replace the fluids lost during exercise. A good nutritional idea and an important one at that is to consume a carbohydrate, post-training, such as fruit or juice within 15 minutes to help restore glycogen. Here are two Post-Workout Shake recipes from our friends at Trismarter.com to help with your recovery.

Green Goddess Shake
When you don't feel like eating after a workout that lasts 60 min. or longer, a shake is the perfect solution. Blend and sip Green Goddess Post Triathlon Workout Shake during the hour post-workout, to maximize recovery and top off glycogen stores.

Ingredients:

    Green Goddess Shake
  • • 1 cup organic spinach
  • • 3 stalks organic celery
  • • 1 medium organic golden delicious apple
  • • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • • small piece of fresh ginger root
  • • slices of lemon
  • • 1 tablespoon flax oil (organic, high lignan)
  • • 4 oz. water

Pour into a blender and enjoy!


Immune Booster Shake
Are you feeling run-down? This only takes 5 minutes to prepare, but is full of nutrients to boost your immune system. It works best if you use a Vita-Mix blender, but can also work with a regular blender. Just expect the drink will be very pulpy and thick.
