2. Protein shake
This shake is an easy way to get the protein you need to build up lean muscle mass along with high fiber fruits, such as strawberries, which digest slowly and you keep full and energized. Protein powders can be either whey or soy protein and around 100-200 calories per scoop with at least 10 to 20 grams of protein. Get an immune-boosting bonus from whey protein, which contains the building blocks for glutathione, an antioxidant. The banana provides delicious flavor of course, and it packs potassium to help maintain electrolyte balance.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
