Organic dried mango and post work out smoothies
We have done intense hours of exercise, we left totally exhausted and hungry and so many times after leaving the gym we really want to eat a hamburger, cookies, and the delicious ice cream that awaits us at home or any other snack that you could think of. However, the exercise session will not be complete until you eat something, so we recommend that after exercise you should always eat foods with protein and antioxidants such as organic dried mango.
These foods will give our body the necessary protein so that the muscles can be strengthened and the antioxidants will help us to reduce the inflammation and cell damage that could occur after an intense session of exercise. On the other hand, if you want to eat carbohydrates we recommend that you must do it before the exercise session, try not to do it post work out.
In order to achieve a strong and healthy body you need 20% of exercise and 80% food because it won´t work if you do a thousand repetitions if you go out and go straight for some popcorn and a soda. All our efforts will not have been worth it.
The ideal time to ingest the smoothies is maximum one hour after having finished the exercise; to be able to drink them you can add water, almond milk or coconut water. Remember that you can customize your smoothies and achieve the flavor and texture you want.
1. Organic dried mango smoothie
For this smoothie we will need almond milk, 1 cup of organic dried mango, 1 tablespoon of chia, Greek yogurt without sugar, cayenne pepper. Integrate all the ingredients in the blender and let stand about 40 minutes.
The organic dried mango smoothie has many benefits, because mango is an excellent source of antioxidants and calcium that will help the health of your muscles and bones, in addition to providing energy, contains magnesium, copper and potassium. Chia is a source of fiber, antioxidants, proteins and omega 3 of vegetable origin. Cayenne pepper has anti-irritant properties, and Greek yogurt is a great source of protein. In addition, the organic dried mango will help you prevent eye diseases, cardiovascular diseases and even some types of cancer.
2. Cherry smoothie
For this smoothie we will need organic dried mango, strawberries (can be fresh or strawberry powder), 2 carrots, coconut water, ¼ cup of orange juice, cherries, cinnamon and Greek yogurt. Strawberries improve the antioxidant capacity of blood and fiber, cherries will help you repair muscle damage and help you fall asleep; cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties.
3. Green smoothie
We will need coconut water, ½ cup of baby spinach, 1 frozen banana, ½ organic dried mango, 1 tablespoon of stevia, and 1 table spoon of chia. This smoothie has many benefits, the banana provides a lot of potassium which helps prevent cramps, spinach contains vitamin K that helps retain calcium which gives us strong bones and also gives us iron.
4. Strawberry and banana smoothie
For this smoothie we will need strawberries powder, 1 frozen banana, almond milk or the one you prefer, ¼ cup of Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. All the ingredients must be placed in the blender until they have the desired consistency. The peanut butter contains healthy fats, which will help us recover energy. This smoothie is delicious and very easy to make at home.
5. Green tea
The green tea is ideal to ingest before or after the exercise session because it contains caffeine and can give us an injection of energy to perform our exercise routine. In addition, green tea helps to accelerate metabolism and helps burn calories. On the other hand, if we exercise in the morning, we can take it after the work out and it will help us to have energy to continue with our activities, besides it strengthens the immune system.
These are some examples of smoothies that will help you achieve your goals (you can add the protein supplement you take). In addition, the dried fruits are great allies as complements in the smoothies or if you do not have time to prepare a smoothie after leaving the gym we recommend you to take dried fruits such as organic dried mango, banana, apple or coconut because you can take them as a snack at any time of the day. They are easy to carry, very healthy and they will allow you to obtain all the nutrients your body needs and complement the exercise with an excellent diet.
