CrossFit nutrition: Pre & post WOD protein smoothie

  It can be challenging to find enough time to whip up a proper protein filled breakfast before an early CrossFit session. I’ve discovered that protein smoothies make those early mornings just that little bit easier.   I’ve been looking for a protein supplement that is not filled with sugars or artificial sweeteners, additives and preservatives. I realise that protein supplements are still outside what is considered paleo, but the current brand I’m using seems to be a good compromise between health and results as it’s all natural ingredients and no nasties. As a bonus it’s very yummy and doesn’t upset my very sensitive stomach.   Pre-workout: Blend all ingredients until smooth and drink 30-60 minutes before workout. 2 tbsp all natural chocolate protein powder 0.5 banana 4 large strawberries 1 passion fruit 0.5 cup coconut milk 0.5 cup water Post workout: Blend all ingredients until smooth and drink 45 minutes after workout. 4 tbsp all natural chocolate protein powder 1 banana 6 large strawberries 1 passion fruit 1 cup coconut milk 1 cup...
