Focusing on including as much nutrient density as possible in your meals is one of the most sustainable, healthy ways to lose weight and burn fat. Nutrients to focus on include protein, fat, carbohydrates and greens (I call greens a separate group because they’re so important for their numerous health benefits).
It’s really easy to get those nutrients in your body with a green smoothie – so be sure to try out today’s “Warrior Green Smoothie.”
This green smoothie works great as a post-workout blend, could be a light meal replacement and will give you fantastic energy! It’s got antioxidants, vitamins, anti-inflammatory compounds, fiber, protein, simple carbs, and just a little healthy fat.
