Not that I’m back to my crazy workouts (it was just a matter of time… I’m an addict), I have to make sure I get enough protein. If I weren’t raw, it wouldn’t be something I’d have to think about.
But the fact that I am raw PLUS my workouts are really intense, my protein intake is something I need to watch. Mostly because I love muscle, and always want more =)
One way I do this is by adding protein powder to my already protein-packed green smoothies, with hempseed and flax. I DO prefer getting protein from unrefined sources; even though my protein powder is high quality, it’s still processed.
When I’m done with this container of powder, I’m not buying anymore. From now on I’ll just be getting protein from nuts, seeds and greens (which I partly do already).
Yay! In nature, there aren’t protein powder trees. Wouldn’t that be nice though?
After my workout today – which involved plyo-metrics, kickboxing, yoga and weight training – I made a DELICIOUS green smoothie and gulped it down. Then I stretched and watched the end of a Doris Day movie.
I could feel my muscles calling for some more building materials, so I decided to make a chocolate-y treat with mostly oats, nuts and rice protein powder. They’re turned out like truffles because I rolled them into balls and coated them with cocoa =)
Blend all ingredients until smooth! Sip and enjoy good health! Dang IT’S SO GOOD.
