I had another long morning away from home ahead of me and I knew I had a small lunch to bring. I decided to fuel up in the morning so that I wouldn't be too hungry before I retuned home later that afternoon.
This smoothie is a powerhouse of nutrition. 25 grams of protein, 90% of my daily fiber, 50% vitamin A, 50% B-1, 125% Vitamin C, 140% Vitamin E, 500% Vitamin K, 70% Calcium, 50% Iron, 125% Magnesium, 109% Phoshorus, 70% Zinc, 363% a-Linolenic Acid. I've only highlighted the vitamins and minerals that came in over 50% of my daily needs but need less to say its very nutrient dense.
