Thrilled to see U.S. Women’s Field Hockey National Team athlete Lauren Pfeiffer enjoying my Blueberry-Chocolate Protein Smoothie recipe post-workout. She understands the importance of post-workout nutrition and it’s inspiring to me, seeing how dedicated these ladies are to their sport and how they fuel their bodies and minds! I am honored to be a part of their “team” and share my passion of health, nutrition and fitness with such a like-minded group!
“It is important to refuel your body after a workout with carbohydrates and protein in order to recover properly. Smoothies are an easy way to get your post-workout nutritional needs (and they taste good too!).” ~Lauren Pfeiffer
