Pre-Workout Power Smoothie

By Eddie Schlagintweit

Getting the right food before a workout can be a make-or-break factor. A mixture of simple and complex carbohydrates, slow-burning fats, and vitamins makes the difference between hitting the wall or hitting your personal best. 

This A to Z Pre-Workout Power Smoothie covers all the bases: the banana, raspberries, and medjool dates make a mouth-watering combination, and deliver an immediate burst of energy that will have you racing off the start line. Healthy fats from the unsweetened coconut milk and hemp hearts, plus iron from the organic spinach, stabilize your energy levels and keep your work rate high. Bonus: omega-3 fatty acids from the hemp hearts boost muscle strength and repair post-workout. 

If you are preparing for a workout longer than an hour, add in a long-lasting complex carbohydrate, like rolled oats (sub gluten-free oats if gluten sensitive). Round it all off with a tablespoon of PureFood A-Z powder for all your essential vitamins and minerals, and you have a smooth and delicious cup of vitality that will have you feeling unstoppable for your workout!
