Bananas A-Whey Recovery Smoothie

Bananas A-Whey Recovery Smoothie
Macros: (approx.) Cals 249, Carbs 24, Fat 2, Protein 37, Sugar 15, Fiber 1

I've been reading more about the importance of post-workout meals - the only time of the day where you actually *want* higher glycemic "bad" carbs and/or sugar! The bad carbs and sugar allow your muscles to use the protein :) In fact, for your post-workout meal you should look for something low in fat/fiber because these nutrients slow down digestion! Typically, you would want to slow digestion with higher fat/fiber because you feel satiated longer - but for post-workout, you want something that allows for a quick digestion and absorption of protein.
