The Health Benefits of Protein is that it is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. Protein is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the "building blocks" for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including the following: Repair body cells, Build and repair muscles and bones, Provide a source of energy and Control many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism.
The body is able to make non-essential amino acids from other amino acids in the body. However, the body is not able to make essential amino acids and the only way to get them is by eating high quality protein foods. Protein sources that contain all of the essential amino acids are called complete proteins.


Ingredients:
1 banana
1 mango
2 peaches
300g low-fat yogurt
1 - 2 scoops of Protein powder ( whey, soy, hemp or pea etc)
200ml rice milk and Ice
2 tbsp seeds (e.g. sunflower, pumpkin and sesame), freshly ground or chopped
1 - 2 tbsp liquid omega oil ( fish, hemp, flax... see their instructions )


Directions:
Peel the mango, remove the fruit and roughly chop. Wash the peaches, remove the stones and chop the flesh. Chop the banana into 3 pieces. Place all the fruit into a blender and whiz until smooth. Add the yogurt, Rice Milk and seeds and whiz again for a few seconds until frothy.

Notes: *Diabetics - reduce the amount of fruit by at least half, you can also add a teaspoon of ground flax to increase the fibre, which will slow the uptake of sugars into your system. If gluten intolerant, try replacing possible allergenic foods (dairy, whey, soy), instead add more water and use hemp protein.

Wellness Tip
Addressing Muscle Soreness
The smartest way to address muscle soreness is to avoid it. When starting a new training program, or upgrading an existing one, go into it gradually. Take several weeks, even longer if necessary. Should you experience soreness along the way, give your muscles a day or two of rest to recover.
