Staying Healthy and Fit
So if you love to workout or are just starting in on integrating fitness into your life, this organic, vegan shake can really help. Makes for a great dessert too!
It's simple and has all the ingredients for a healthy recovery shake/meal. You can avoid all the powders and strange ingredients in after workout pills, etc. Though some of the vegan protein powders are decent they lack the freshness and nutritional value of fresh food. Here are a couple of options for the weight lifter, the yoga inclined, the bicycler fanatic, the can barely move after exercising initiate, and beyond.
My favorite after workout vegan shake is a banana peanut butter shake! We use a sweet Ninja Mega Blender that we got on sale off Amazon but just about any blender should work. Sit back, relax, and allow your body to absorb essential carbohydrates, fat, protein, and natural sugars. Not only does this pack around 23 grams of protein (2.6grams from the bananas) but also has 1359 mg of potassium, 31 grams of natural, unprocessed sugars, 66 grams of carbohydrates, and 37 grams of essential, plant based fat. For those looking to pack in extra protein for heavy body building workouts, up the amount of peanuts or peanut butter depending on which one you decide to use.
I have essentially been eating a vegan, whole foods, plant-based diet for over a year now and am able to landscape full time and workout 2-3 times a week while maintaining or gaining body weight and strength. The workout program I am on thanks to the Cody App, is Dylan Werner's, True Strength Builder 1. If you wanna see someone absolutely stoked and flexible from yoga its worth checking out, I would start with the True Strength Fundamentals. So basically this is one of my go to, after workout vegan power shakes. It is nutritionally dense, packed with all the essentials, fresh and delicious. Most people that have tried this have it for dessert on the regular.
Other variants on the shake include adding a handful of fresh organic strawberries or pineapple.
