We have 3 essential smoothie recipes for triathletes and even if you are not exercising at that level, you can still enjoy them.  They are: a pre-workout smoothie; a recovery smoothie; and a nutrient-dense smoothie to fill you with healthy protein to help you avoid the packaged sports foods.

The recipes are from Pip Taylor, a nutritionist and professional triathlete, writing at the Ironman website. Pip says …

Too many triathletes rely heavily on packaged sports foods. These might be great for race day and for key workouts, but getting a substantial proportion of your daily calories from sports drinks, gels and chews is less than ideal and will leave you lacking in the nutrient department. Try to incorporate more real fool and include a couple of nutrient-dense smoothies throughout the week. Green vegetables (with a little fruit to sweeten) are a convenient way to boost your nutrient intake.
