Post workout smoothie!

Being underweight all my life was a struggle for me. And for my mother to keep feeding me right to gain weight.

For many of you, weight gain is just as simple as breathing air. I get it, and it is equally painful for a person like me with a high metabolism.

My mother used to incorporate veggies like kale, spinach and beetroots to my regular food. Today, adding greens to my meals comes instinctively to me.

This smoothie can keep you full for long hours due to its balance of macro and micronutrients—one of the reasons why I like to have this smoothie post-workout.

One can consume this smoothie before a meal, and that may prevent overeating.

To a smoothie maker; A banana, 1/2 orange, some semi-cooked beetroot, some raspberries 3/4 cup yoghurt or milk of our choice and blend with 1 tbsp of almond butter and flax seeds. Sprinkle some cinnamon and serve with love! (serves 2)

Nutritional banana contains vital nutritious values that help weight loss. Vitamin C helps prevent tissue damage; Vitamin B6 helps produce red blood cells, and potassium supports brain growth.

Raspberry packed with antioxidants fight against cancer, heart and circulatory diseases. Tannin content controls blood sugar.

A study in 2012 has suggested that consumption of beetroot juice boosts physical performance. Beetroot also contains many other nutrients like iron, potassium, selenium, copper and the list goes on.

The most popular fruit helps with several benefits. Orange contains Vitamins B6 that help boosts the making of haemoglobin. Helps to keep blood pressure under control because of magnesium. Alkalises the body and keeps the eyes healthy with the help of carotenoid present.

Enjoy this version of smoothie and comment down or tag me on instagram if you have ever tried it.

Tips and Tricks: Store the peels in a ziplock bag with water and use the water as a fertilizer after few days.
