Energising Protein Smoothie – #MondayGreens

Need some Monday Motivation? I’ve got you!

We’re beating the Monday Blues with Monday Greens and today I have a protein smoothie to energise you and repair you after a workout session. Even without the workout, you’ll still benefit from this blend.

Pomegranates are fantastic (one of my favourite fruit, and so are persimmons!) and we’re just entering their season! Bring them on! With a history of more than 5000 years, the pomegranate was originally found in Persia and Brought in Europe by the Spanish Colonists. 

They’re not only beautiful and alluring fruits  but also rich in anti-oxidants and Vitamin C, preventing free-radicals from oxidising LDL cholesterol (the bad type) and damaging tissues. A cup a day keeps the radicals away! 

“Pomegranates contain antioxidants that are believed to fight against free radicals, which are harmful cells that can become cancerous, in the body. This fruit is also a great source of Vitamins A, C and E, and contains folic acid. It is great for boosting the immune system as one pomegranate contains about 40 percent of an adult’s recommended Vitamin C intake. Other benefits of this fruit include: reducing the risk of heart disease, decreasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and promoting healthy skin. Properties in pomegranates help keep bad cholesterol from clogging up the arteries, supporting proper blood flow to the heart, and some studies have shown a reduction in systolic blood pressure when drinking pomegranate juice.” source

Sounds awesome to me! Let’s do this!
