My Sun Warrior Recovery Shake & Protein Discount

Recovery shake!

Coach Rita recommends I have a recovery shake every day, which is great since I was already getting into this habit with my schedule as busy as it is these days. I guess it's working well too considering my progress pics below! 

We are both adamant about a few key things in your protein selection: 

1. Look for a short ingredient list (the more ingredients the less likely it's good for you)
2. No fillers (aspartame and sugar free)
3. Stevia is a great sweetener replacement
4. Look for high protein per serving (20-30g)
5. Added BCAAs are always a bonus, but not necessary, 
6. High carb are fine post workout and low carb if you are trying to slim down. 
7. And of course a yummy flavour!

Here's my latest Recovery Shake Recipe:

*Note: this recipe is for 2 people, my daughter likes to have this for breakfast. 1/2 the recipe if it's for 1.

2 scoops Active Greens
2 Tbsp chia seeds
4 Tbsp flaxseeds
2 Tbsp coconut butter
2 Tbsp almond butter 
2 handfuls cherries, pitted
2 handfuls blueberries
2 figs
Almond milk (to fill out the smoothie - usually about 1 cup)
6 ice cubes
Blend & enjoy!

Our friends at Sun Warrior Canada have a great deal for my readers today. You'll get 10% off with the Discount Code - TOSCA

*Valid until July 6th, 2012

Let the transformation begin!


  1. I can't believe the progress you have made in such a short time!!! You are so inspiring, and you will always be someone I look up to. I'm loving the little peeks into your competition fitness and nutrition routine. I can't wait to see the end result! And, of course, you are amazing! :)

  2. Looks like another healthy recipe. One that has a lot of ingredients, but is still good for you. I was under the impression that people were eating chia seed in place of flax seed. Is it important to have both?

  3. Great job. You look awesome after your first week. No doubt you will look amazing after your done with your prep training.

  4. Weight loss, in the context of medicine, health or physical fitness, is a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue and or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon and other connective tissue. Thanks.

  6. Proteins may be purified from other cellular components using a variety of techniques such as ultracentrifugation, precipitation, electrophoresis, and chromatography; the advent of genetic engineering has made possible a number of methods to facilitate purification. Thanks.

  7. I love this shake, I'll be honest Joe..
