Recovery is what you do when you're not doing your sport. Ideally after hard workouts you get recovery into your thirsty muscles within 30 minutes. This is when your body is most efficiently able and ready to absorb the precious nutrients packed in those precious mixes and bars. But recovery doesn't end there. How and what you do when you're not riding, running, skiing, boarding, lifting, climbing or whatever else gets your heart beating, is also crucial. In fact, recovery products, like Clif Builder Bars or Fluid recovery mix, are fantastic options for meal replacement. The protein content in them makes you feel fuller longer, and they’re packed with a great dose of essential vitamins. Fluid Chocolate recovery mix during the day can yield great results. Here’s a recipe: Combine and Blend: Almond Milk, 1-2 Bananas, 2 scoops of Fluid Recovery, and 1 pack of Justin’s Maple Almond Nut Butter. Drink up & Enjoy.
