Make sure you're fueling your muscles with nutrients and goodness. I know you can buy all kinds of formulations for protein shakes, but I find them super sweet, artificial in taste, loaded in carbs, and crazy expensive. If you are living on a college budget, save some cash--just make your own--live better, eat better, save your money!
Or try almond butter.
Got your blender? Go for it!
Nutri-Bullet or Magic-Bullet
1/2 - 3/4 banana, sliced
1/4 cup peanut butter or almond butter
2 scoops lean whey protein (like Myoplex / EAS Lean 15)
1/2 cup almond milk
Large handful of ice cubes
1. Wash your hands.
2. Add everything to your blender.
(Tip: I prep the whole concoction in the fridge the night before so that I just need to pulse everything the next morning as I head out the door! Just put a lid on it until ready to use!)
