Energize your Workouts: Put the E in your E-Smoothies

Energize your Workouts: Put the E in your E-Smoothies

June 26, 2019 0 Comments

I love exercising every single day; by now it’s part of my daily routine. I know that if I start my morning with a good workout the rest of my day will be totally invigorated. I have also noticed the importance of eating breakfast before working out, if not I can easily feel wheezy or with low energy.

Making sure I eat breakfast and start out with a good day is important because of how busy my days are. Throughout the day I bounce between chores, requiring a lot of energy. I’m always running, running to get my kids on time to school, to get to my tennis tournament without losing by default (you only have 5 min to be late), or to my spinning class, (if you arrive after the class has started you can only go inside when the first song finishes). With an around the clock schedule, I barely have time for breakfast, and like I said before, without any breakfast I would be doomed with low energy during my workouts. 

With that being said, I began my search for breakfast options that had 4 specific qualities: 

  1. Keep me energized
  2. Be delicious 
  3. Easy to prepare
  4. Convenient to take on the go

After extensive research and trying out different options I found one that could give me all of the things I was looking for. Simple, quick, and easy to make for a mom on the run, let me introduce you to the E-smoothie. Now, you may be asking yourself what the E stands for, well, its really simple: energy.   If you're busy, the most important thing you have to take into account is your energy so you can survive your whole day. So, to save you some time and hassle, these are my best tips for creating a delicious E-smoothie. 

TIPS

  • Always choose a liquid base such as water, milk, almond milk, cashew milk or coconut water, etc.
  • Drink it cold!!! It’s always more delicious if it’s cold, you can add ice, or just make sure your liquid base is kept in the fridge.
  • For every fruit you add, always add 3 veggies (you will see the options later on).
  • Don’t forget to add a superfood. It’s important to note that a lot of times these ingredients won’t be perceived in the smoothie, but they will definitely give you an extra energy boost. Some superfoods are: chia, flax seeds, oats, ginger, turmeric, amaranth, etc. 

These are just some tips to take into account for a delicious, simple, convenient, pre workout E-smoothie. If possible, make sure you use organic ingredients. So now, let’s get ready to fuel up our mornings with high energy levels. Here are some combinations you can make!
