Protein Power Smoothies: 75 High-Protein, Low-Carb Smoothies That Ditch the Sugar, Support Muscle-Building, and Optimize Your Metabolism (Paperback)
Smoothies are often touted as healthy snacks or quick meals. However, most smoothies are anything but. Blend together a banana, dates, more fruit, processed almond milk, maybe some protein powder, and a handful of kale, and you don’t have a healthy drink. You’ve got a sugar bomb with a few vitamins that tops 100 carbs and has preservatives and inflammatory ingredients to boot.
Smoothies can help you balance your weight and augment your nutrition, but they need to be made the right way. Protein Power Smoothies gives you the low-down on how to construct yummy yet healthy smoothies that are high in protein and low in carbohydrates.
