Pre workout energy/simp-carb shake
In my opinion, simple carbs should be ingested pre-post workout meals to cause insulin spikes to aid nutrients into being forced into the muscles when they need it the most. With that said, I developed this shake at home and I loved the taste and energy I get from it.
In a blender add:
2 cups orange juice (50g carbohydrates, 0g protein)
1 banana (25g carbohydrates, 0g protein)
3 tablespoons liquid honey (60g carbohydrates, 0g protein)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (for extra taste)
total: 135g carbohydrates, 0g protein
all simple carbs, which means quick energy and insulin spike, works awesome for post workout shake when protein is taken as well IMO.
