The Runner's Recovery Smoothie

Written by


We all have our favorite routines and running recovery strategies, but I think you'll agree that none taste better than this one. After running, our bodies crave protein and carbohydrates. In fact, protein increases the rate of muscle-building if taken immediately after a run, so don't miss out on an opportunity to get the most out of your training.

Here's how I feed my muscles and jump on the road to recovery using fresh ingredients that boost recovery, reduce inflammation and ward off injury. 

Each piece of this delicious puzzle is a running super food.
