Vitamin C is a great immune-booster, but it’s also an important element to energy synthesis throughout the body — which basically means that it helps our bodies convert food into energy. Luckily, this smoothie is full of vitamin C (grapefruit, pineapple and kale). It’s also full of protein, thanks to a scoop of easy-to-digest pea protein, which is essential for prolonged vitality. Because unsaturated fat is the most energy dense of all the macronutrients, the healthy fat in half an avocado and walnuts is also essential to feeling both mentally and physically alert. If you have a long day ahead of you, but still want to fall peacefully asleep at night, try this low sugar, low carb option.
