The Hockey News - - Buzz - – JARED CLIN­TON

Find­ing a fast, easy and sat­is­fy­ing way to fuel up can be the best way to keep healthy eat­ing in­ter­est­ing. Al­ter­ing the clas­sic smoothie pro­vides an ath­lete a perfect pre- or post-work­out treat as an ad­di­tion to or in be­tween meals. “Smoothie bowls are a spin to the reg­u­lar smoothie where you can add ad­di­tional top­pings to make it even more nu­tri­ent dense and sat­is­fy­ing,” said di­eti­tian Bil­lie Jane Her­mo­sura, owner of Nutri­tion In­tel. “Smoothie bowls can be a part of break­fast or any other time of the day, in­clud­ing af­ter a train­ing ses­sion.”
