« ...Gotta Get My M.E.D.S... | Main | ::[WATERAID] MADAGASCAR 2016:: »


When I was training for the Olympics full time, I had to consume as many calories as possible. On the water for 3 or 4 hours a day, in the gym for strength training, and running or swimming for additional cardio (on top of our 10+ weekly on water sessions) added up to between 4000 and 5000 of extra calories everyday. If I didn't ensure that I was fueling up my body with excellent nutrition, then my performance would suffer and I wouldn't be maximizing my daily effort.
Our training sessions were often only an hour apart, so I'd need food fuel that I could consume on the go, bring in the car, or even eat or drink in the shower.
A daily smoothie provided me with a quick fuel-up in between meals and training sessions.
Now that I've switched gears, and my focus is on health, happiness and overall fitness rather than high-end world-class performance, that same smoothie recipe is my go to for a light breakfast or a lunch substitute when I don't have time to sit down for a full meal.
I always rely on real food over bars and supplements to keep the nutrition value high in my recipes. A really high quality protein powder is all I need to add to a smoothie to create a whole meal.
I've tried them all, but BiPro Protein is the supplement that I've chosen to use in my smoothies and shakes. It's NSF certified for sport, naturally sourced and tastes really great, way better than most powders I've used.
Give my smoothie a try with a scoop of BiPro Pure Whey Protein Isolate!
The Full Meal:
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
1 whole banana (frozen or not, preferably ripe)
A few heaping table spoons of yogurt
A handful of baby spinach, baby kale or a mix of both
1 cup of milk or liquid of your choice
Wizz around in the blender, vitamix or in your ninja until it's nice and smooth.
Add a little more milk if it's too thick! Pour it into a shaker cup and take it along with you, do whatever you want! It's your smoothie now!
Late for training/work/school? Quick! Here's my first thing in the morning breakfast replacement...
The Kickstarter:

A frozen banana
2 large table spoons of smooth peanut butter
1 cup of milk or liquid of your choice   
2 shots of espresso (or half a cup of black coffee)
Wizz that around in the blender and prepare to have your mind altered.
Charged Up!
