We know the importance of consuming vegetables in our diet and also the benefits of including them when we practice sports. When we talk about the foods that we should consume after a workout, we generally think of protein shakes that allow us to recover muscle, however, now we want to invite you to try consuming a green juice after your workout. Here are some food combinations and we also tell you why you should include a green juice after your workout.

  1. Contains vitamins and minerals. Let’s start with the best known and that is that we know that vegetables and fruits have vitamins and minerals that our body needs for optimal functioning.
  2. Help your hydration. Sometimes we drink sodas or drinks with large amounts of sugar and salt that we think can help us hydrate. However, if we opt for green juice and also add a little Himalayan salt, we will obtain the same results without the need to consume sugar or salt.
  3. For its protein content. By including a juice with spinach, chard, and kale, you are giving your body a good source of protein needed for muscle rebuilding.
  4. Low in calories. You need something nutritious, but at the same time that it does not provide you with large amounts of calories. Green juice is healthier than other drinks that will add inches to your waistline.
  5. It will provide you with energy. Fruits and vegetables will provide you with energy, without adding stress (like caffeine) to your body. Many people consume caffeinated beverages after their workout, when they could consume a green juice and would get similar results.
  6. Refreshing and light.  After drinking it, you will not feel indigestion or heaviness. Your body will absorb the nutrients quickly and the benefit of hydration will be almost immediate.
