Sunday Runday Smoothie

It’s a beautiful day in Brooklyn.  Great morning for a run around Prospect Park.  One lap around the park is about 3.4 miles.  Perfect for those prepping for a 5K.  I was tempted to erase the whole run by woofing down a cheddar & dill scone from Connecticut Muffin, but I came home and made this delicious recovery smoothie instead:


1 Banana

1/2 Cup Frozen Strawberries

1/2 Cup Chopped Frozen Pineapple

1 Cup Mesclun Greens

1/2 Cup Brazil Nuts

1 Teaspoon Glutamine Powder

1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk

Food Key

– Bananas: vitamin B6 and potassium

– Strawberries: vitamins C & B5, potassium, folic acid and magnesium

– Pineapples: vitamin C, potassium, magnesium and folic acid

– Mesclun Greens: vitamins C & A, calcium and iron

– Brazil Nuts: magnesium, potassium and zinc

– Glutamine: aids muscle recovery and protein synthesis
