Post-Workout Protein Cabbage Smoothie

I really liked my protein smoothie from yesterday so after my strength training today, I decided to try out another similar recipe, but this time with some cabbage. When reading The Kind Diet, I noticed how Alicia mentioned that cabbage is really good for your body so I wanted to give it a try. The smoothie ended up looking a weird color, but it tasted just fine! I couldn’t even taste the chalky protein powder or the vegetables. I definitely recommend this post-workout smoothie/drink since it has the perfect balance of potassium, carbohydrates, and protein for recovery!
