Slurp Your Way To Stronger Muscles...
Believe it or not, 'When sipped at the right times, in the right amount and blended with the right things, smoothies can build and repair lean muscle tissue, help you feel full and satisfied and may help decrease levels of ghrelin, a hunger-related hormone,' says Jenna Werner, creator of Happy Slim Healthy.
By adding plenty of protein to a smoothie, you will get a much more balanced food choice.
The protein will slow down digestion, keeping you fuller longer, and help prevent sugar spikes and crashes. If you’re making your smoothie a meal, aim for at least 25 grams of protein but if it’s just for a snack, 10 or more grams will do.
If you’re looking for an extra boost of the hunger-curbing macronutrient, consider adding a scoop of protein powder to make a super high-protein smoothie. So get out your blender…what are you waiting for!
