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.”

¼ cup mixed berries ¼ cup granola 1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut 1 tbsp hemp seeds (optional) 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
