Smoothies and juices include a plethora of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals that remain vital to all people, whether you're a triathlete training for an Ironman or a busy mom who wants to shed 10 pounds. While nutrient requirements differ for these two ends of the fitness spectrum, this month's Active Cookbook combines smoothie and juice recipes that cater to the nutritional needs of endurance athletes (see post-workout and recovery smoothies) as well as the weight management concerns of fitness enthusiasts (see lower-sugar smoothie alternatives). Whatever your goals, smoothies and juices provide portable nutrition that's perfect for busy individuals who want to stay healthy and perform their best.
