Vitamin PACKED Green Smoothie

Sometimes after a great workout I don’t feel super hungry, but I know the importance of replenishing calories, fats, and proteins post workout.  A fantastic way to get those nutrients back into the body are shakes and smoothies.  Not necessarily “protein shakes” but shakes/smoothies made with whole ingredients.  There are so many ways to get protein in, other than adding powdered proteins.  Almond milk, regular milk, peanut butter, nuts, etc.
