Your best post workout smoothie should include healthy, protein-rich foods like yogurt, milk, natural peanut butters, nuts, or even tofu. We know that protein is an essential macronutrient. It helps build muscle, and it helps develop healthy hair, blood, and antibodies. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) is 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram or 2.2 pounds in body weight. So, a person weighing 150 pounds would require about 54 grams of protein each day. You can use the USDA National Agricultural Library’s daily requirement calculator to calculate your daily protein requirement.
Making smoothies a part of your post workout routine carries other important benefits. It can help you spread your protein intake throughout the day so that you don’t focus on just one meal or one type of protein. The current dietary guideline recommends eating several different protein-rich foods, including vegetables, nuts, seeds, and soy products, and these are all healthy additions to the best post workout smoothie. Be sure to choose protein-rich foods that are low in saturated fats and processed carbohydrates, but rich in important nutrients.
