Happy summer everyone! As we all know to0 well, July is when the heat starts to kick it up a notch and we're left to fend for our comfort. The heat plays a big part in how we approach our training, but also our nutrition. Most of our clients cringe at the thought of prepping food over a hot stove, and by now... even a grill. We need some quick, easy, go to's! Here are some SUPER simple smoothie recipes to cool off in a delicious, nutritious way. They're great to put together at night for a morning kickstart, after a workout (recovery smoothie, yes!) or even to fill those long, hot summer afternoons. Throw in a scoop of your favorite natural protein powder for a muscle building kick. Check out a few of our simple LIVFIT summer smoothies!
