Green Protein Quencher

Cals 230 Carbs 36 Protein 16 Fiber 7

You knew eventually I would post some type of green-protein-smoothie drink. What fitness guru doesn’t. That’s because there the bomb. So creamy, filling, healthy, and delicious. I eat a green protein smoothie at least once a day if not twice. It’s such a convenient/cheap way to get protein, veggies, and your fruit!

With the right balance of fruits and protein you can kick your hunger pain to the curb. Protein in particular Whey, delivers satiety through its interaction with your appetite-suppressing hormones. Low GI fruit such as kiwis and bananas score low on the glycemic index scale, meaning that they are absorbed slowly, which translates to a steady stream of energy. Fiber and omega-3 fatty acids from ground flax-seed help keep your blood sugar levels on an even keel.
