Here’s what I drank for breakfast while in my ice bath after my long run:
- 1 packet No Sugar Added Carnation Instant Breakfast in Rich Milk Chocolate: I used this because it’s full of protein and vitamins. The kind with the sugar has just way too much in it, but this kind is very good for you.
- 1 cup Silk Light Plain Soymilk: Protein, omega-3s (a natural anti-inflammatory), calcium
- 1 cup Non-fat Plain White Mountain Bulgarian yogurt: Protein, calcium, probiotics
- 1 small red grapefruit: Vitamin C, which is excellent for muscle repair
It was a bit chunky because I didn’t blend it for long enough. I’m not used to making smoothies. I like my food in solid form. It tasted fine. Not delicious, but I was going to be drinking it in an ice bath, so how enjoyable can it possibly be?
