For the past couple of weeks I’ve been incorporating 2 meat-free days into my weekly regime. I’m doing this for a number of reasons but I’ve been feeling the physical benefits and hope to continue for the foreseeable future. On these days I’m actually going vegan and sticking to plant-based foods only.
Here’s a great recipe for my post-workout smoothie. Plenty of fat from the coconut cream and some carbs to replenish my cells, as I want to train tomorrow as well! On the days when I train but don’t follow up the next day I’m restricting carbs as insulin blunts growth hormone and testosterone –
Throw everything into a blender and blitz for 20 secs or so. I topped the smoothie with some activated buckwheat for some crunch – feel free to use any seeds, cocao nibs or nuts.
