DON’T: Pour in protein powder.
Protein powders are often filled with highly processed ingredients more suitable for bulking up. Use natural sources of protein instead to help sustain your energy throughout the day.
DO: Try nut butters, flaxseeds, or tofu.
A small dose of peanut butter or a tablespoon of flaxseed is a healthy way of adding protein to a smoothie. Silken tofu is another great option and blends easily with other ingredients.
