you burned upteen calories. I've been exercising for a long time, but it was refreshing to read which specific berries and combinations of fruits and vegetables can help you after a hard run to keep down inflammation instead of reaching for ibuprofen.
You'll love the top 10 tips and tricks for a smoothie prep. I also loved the information about what to eat before and after you run since many times I have wondered what would be the best "body fuel" for that. Reading the Hawaiian smoothie to charge you up for a nice run on the soft sand made me want to pack my bag, head to the beach and hit the sand.
This book was so full of tips about smoothies; it made me ache to go run and grab one to refresh and energize me! This is a GREAT book that you should download-----now!
It's apparent the author has done his research on the science behind smoothies too. There are pages of information that would be helpful to athletes of all types. I never knew certain types of berries could be substituted for Motrin in helping with inflammation!
This book has opened my eyes to the different types that can be made and the different ingredients to use for different circumstances - yep, it's different!
The biggest surprise was the coconut water and its uses.
The whole family love smoothies and we've had fun trying recipes relevant to what we're doing - just getting going in the morning, cycling, running - whatever.
Glad I bought the book!
NOTE: The author uses a very expensive blender, but I find my lower range one does the job beautifully, and it's quick and easy to wash up. It's not in stock any more, but this one is near enough: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-HR2160-50-Blender-Pulse/dp/B0051UGYZE/ref=sr_1_7?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1328376173&sr=1-7
After reading through this book, I am sure it would help any and all runners, regardless of whether they are beginners or have been running for years. I really liked how the author discussed the importance of nutrition and how smoothies can help your body get the nutrition it needs easily, quickly and deliciously.
I cannot wait to try out a variety (and yes there is quite a variety) of smoothies to see how they impact my running and my recovery time.
I have been a runner and I know what 'the bonk' feels like. I remember a few better days too, and now I know why they happened...
Nowadays, I'm more of a cyclist, but I'll be carrying smoothies in my drinks bottle in future.
This is an excellent book, even if you don't run, cycle or play sport. But you might find you're so full of energy after drinking some of these smoothies that you'll want to get out and run anyway.
You don't have to be a runner to benefit from the advice in this book. People involved in high-intensity resistance training will benefit greatly by drinking these smoothies instead of processed shakes or chocolate milk.
As someone who is physically active, and diligent about maintaining good health, I know good advice when I read it and this book will be a great addition to my library.
