3 Best Times to Have a Smoothie
Smoothies are one of the most convenient ways to get in the perfect balance of nutrients, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise when I tell you that there are actually three ideal times you can enjoy a smoothie throughout the day. In order to really see a boost in your energy levels, you need to not only focus on what you eat but also when you eat it!
Here are the three best times to have a smoothie:
- Breakfast Boost
If you have a busy morning like most people, breakfast is likely the last thing on your mind. You may think you are making a healthier choice by grabbing a muffin instead of a donut with your coffee, but instead, all you signed up for is a sugar rush. Instead, you want to have a good balance of protein, healthy fats, and fibre to give you sustained energy throughout the morning. If you are short on time, a smoothie is a perfect way to get in all the nutrients without having to worry about eating a big meal during a busy morning.
- Snack Attack
So it’s 3PM and you’re starting to feel that mid-day slump. You are likely to look for something sweet or for some caffeine. Essentially, your body is looking for something to get an energy boost. Caffeine and sugar are not the best options at this time because you will get a crash in energy levels, which you want to avoid. Instead, you want to snack on something that has a balance of protein, fibre, and healthy fats. If you want to snack on the Revive smoothies (insert appropriate link), have half a portion and save the other half for another snack time or split with another family member!
- Post-Workout Fuel Up
After an intense workout sesh, you don’t want all your gains to go to waste without properly refuelling. A high protein smoothie like Berry Blu will help replenish your muscles while leaving you feeling energized for the rest of the day.
