Smooothie and delish!

Smoothies are a great way to get organic and controlled nutrition in your daily diet and fuel your training and racing. Deciding what goes into them can be tough though. You want to get the right blend of macronutrients AND you have to think about the smoothie's purpose at the time of consumption. Your body needs different balances of nutrients at different times in the nutrition cycle. Oh, and it should taste good, too, right? That's where Colorado Springs based running coach CJ Hitz's book Smoothies for Runners 2.0 comes in.

A Little About CJ

After a long 20 year absence from the running scene, CJ caught the “running bug” in 2008 and has not looked back since. He’s dropped over 50 pounds in weight and continues to get faster each year (so far). CJ has competed in well over 150 races ranging from road 5Ks to trail 50Ks. He’s a national class masters runner who enjoys a fast road 5k or a grueling mountain race with lots of elevation gain & loss. Basically, he just plain loves running. CJ and his wife Shelley reside in Colorado Springs, CO where they are spoiled beyond measure with running trails and sunshine. He is a USATF Certified Running Coach with a passion for long distance running. His primary interest is to help runners squeeze out more of their potential and ability by improving the quality of their training and nutrition.

Hey, that sounds right in-line with what we do here are Tri Fuel Monthly, right? We want to improve the quality of your triathlon experience through great nutrition plans. Now we'll give you the tools to blend up some of the best smoothies. Soon you'll be a smoothie fanatic, too!

More Than Just Recipes

Coach Hitz's book is a collection of 24 great recipes that can fuel you up before a workout, help you recover after a race or help you replace a meal in a pinch. But it's more than that. Each recipe is followed up with a training tip. From core workouts to pre-race warmup secrets to managing friendly rivalries, his running tips are perfect for triathletes too!

Garden of Life Plant Based Protein

Whey protein powders have served endurance athletes recovery plans well for many years. However, there are plenty of reasons to consider using a plant based protein and Garden of Life is the leader in plant based supplements and nutrition. The Organic Plant-Based Protein you will receive is the cleanest protein available having quadruple, third-party certifications saying so. Not only is it Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified , Organic Plant-Based Protein takes it to the next level for sport by being NSF Certified for Sport and Informed-Choice for Sport Certified . This ensures there are no banned athletic substances—just whole clean nutrients. Organic Plant-Based Protein offers a blend of certified organic proteins from multiple sources, featuring U.S. grown organic peas, to give it a great smooth and creamy texture. Then they  added other quality proteins such as organic garbanzo beans, organic navy beans, organic lentils and organic cranberry seed protein. One serving delivers 3Og of complete protein providing a full profile of all the essential amino acids, 5.5g BCAAs and 5g glutamine, which are important to help reduce recovery time after exercise.

There are no synthetic branched chain amino acids—they all come from the organic ingredients.

The Organic Muscle Recovery Blend includes Organic Tart Cherries, Organic Apples, Organic Turmeric, Organic Gogi berries and Organic Blueberries—these antioxidants are known to promote faster recovery. Because many sports participants compromise their immune systems due to intense training programs, they added 2 billion CFU of a specially-selected, clinically studied probiotic that has been shown to support immune health during intensive workouts.
