naturally super-charged, energy drink

Working out in the summer heat is difficult, even if you’re as lucky as I am and your fitness class is on the beach.

This easy to make, all natural, super-charged drink gave me just the right amount of energy to fly through my class and feel energized for the walk home along the boardwalk.

Here’s what you need:

1 carrot

1 stalk of celery

a handful of parsley

1 small beet

1/4 of a red pepper

1/2 a tomato

1 small apple

1 tbsp. protein powder of your choice (the one I use is a dairy and gluten free, rice protein)

Place everything in the blender, add 1/2 – 1 cup of water and blend until smooth.

I do mine in a food processor but you can you use a blender or juicer as well.

I like the food processor because you get all the fiber as a bonus.

This drink is chock full of good stuff like vitamins A, C and K, potassium, folate, antioxidant nutrients and phytonutrients such as beta carotene and lutein, and fiber of course!

Oh and here’s a picture of my ‘gym’. Great view, don’t you think!
