Why My Smoothie Is Great ‘Muay Thai Nutrition’
Let’s break down why this Green Banana Strawberry Smoothie is great ‘muay thai nutrition’ and is an awesome post-workout drink to a demanding workout.
Vegetables: The kale and carrots provide your body with the essential vitamins A and C. Vitamin A is great for helping your eyesight and growth of bones (preferably your shin bones). Vitamin C makes collagen, a protein that helps heal wounds which are very likely when training muay thai.
Fruits: The banana and strawberries are full of healthy sugars that get digested quickly and supply your energy levels. The banana is also loaded with potassium which is great for heart health and maintaining a balance blood level. Strawberries also help with inflammation and keeping your immune system strong.
Yogurt/Milk: Greek yogurt is super high in protein which obviously helps with your muscle recovery. It also gives the smoothie a thicker texture which I love. The almond milk is low in calories and easy to digest. It also is loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals: Vitamin A, Zinc and Copper, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Riboflavin, Vitamin B12 and Calcium.
Flaxseeds/Ginger: I add flaxseeds to a lot of stuff because they have great health benefits because they are packed with full of nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, minerals, and essential vitamins. The ginger I add is proven to help aid with muscle soreness… which we all know is a daily part of muay thai training.
You could also add a scoop of protein powder if you’d like to add more protein to it. I personally am a fan of the all natural hemp protein but whey protein also works well. I hope you enjoy it!
