Smoothies are my favorite!! I go to Costco purchase my big bag of frozen fruits, head down to GNC and select the right protein that suits me (Strawberry) Yummy :-) I use my Magic Bullet, one scoop of protein, add my fruit and Almond Milk.. YUMMY! The ingredients of smoothies are usually fruits and vegetables, they release simple and complex carbs which release into your body the first 15-20 minutes, the complex carbs are shortly released into your bloodstream within 30 minutes. Smoothies are just what you need, giving your body enough energy to burn for the entire Ameanspinn session.
1/4 cup sweetened or unsweetened coconut chips
2-3 bananas peeled
1/4 cup mix fruit of your choice ( strawberries, mango, etc)
1/4 cup Vanilla Almond Breeze Milk
1 tablespoon of protein or powered hemp protein
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Add Bananas, mixed fruit, almond milk (or 1% milk) and protein to a blender. Pulse until pureed. If the mixture is too thick, add a just little more of almond milk to help loosen the smoothie. Pure into to a bowl or smoothie cup and top with your toasted coconut and sliced almonds. Enjoy
One of the best foods that you can eat before a spinning session is a banana. They are rich in carbohydrates and will be able to give your body the right amount of nutrition to help it workout. The potassium that is present in bananas will help in keeping up with the muscle and nerve functions. This combined with a healthy breakfast soon after a spinning session will enhance your body’s well being. Also Being the richest sources of fiber, oats will help in slow releasing carbohydrates into the body. Due to the slow release action of oats, there is a constant supply of energy while spinning.
People who enjoy a good cup of coffee will be able to vouch for the goodness of coffee. They find that their entire day feels a lot more energized and they perform better. The reason is the caffeine. When you consume some caffeine before a workout, you are pumping your body with energy to cycle throughout the session time. Your chances of feeling tired easily are also replaced with energized times. Your body will thus burn a lot faster because of the boosting effects of caffeine.
