E.M. Burton and David “Chef” Wallach go over the finer points of a post-workout or meal-replacement shake.
CrossFit teaches a way of eating that considers both macronutrient balance and food quality. As most athletes know, by weighing and measuring intake and recording it using various metrics, you can tweak your diet to check and improve its effect on your performance.
I have been blending up a version of this smoothie nearly daily for years, having discovered its overall benefits when I was focusing my nutritional goals in preparation for pregnancy. I like it at breakfast, but with some adjustments it could make the base for a recovery shake or mid-afternoon snack.
I’m still curious, however. My friend David “Chef” Wallach knows way more about this stuff than I do, so I sought his wise counsel. Needless to say, Chef had some advice to offer when it comes to making a shake.
