Top Off Your Workouts with a Healthy Energy Drink and a Power Cookie

I don’t know about you, but after I end my workout routine of jogging or lifting weights, I always delight in a refreshing pick-me-up and a bit of a snack.

And of course having a nutrient-rich drink and a non-junk food munchie is a smart thing to do since you’ve just stressed your body during your workout routine and broken down millions of cells.

At this point, you need something nutritious to help your ole bod make healthy, new cells.

My favorite post workout cell replacer is an 8-ounce glass of freshly extracted vegetable juice composed of about two ounces of carrot juice mixed with six ounces of a combination of celery, kale, Romaine lettuce, tomato, apple, and anything else that looks excellent in the veggie bin.

Swirling the first mouthful of this concoction through the choppers and up and over the tongue is a taste treat that can’t be beat.

Adding a small dab of hot sauce or juicing a tiny jalapeño without the other veggies (juice it first so the next user of the juice machine isn’t in for a hot surprise) makes a memorable drink that will leave you smacking your lips in happiness.

And here’s a fabulous recipe for an energy-boosting cookie that’ll help you build health:

Raw Apple Raisin Cookies

2 cups sunflower seeds, soaked 4 hours and rinsed

2 Fuji apples, grated 2 large bananas

1/2 cup dates

1 cup raisins

1 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbs flax oil

1 cup walnuts, soaked 2 hours, chopped

Process sunflower seeds and bananas through a Champion juicer with no plate (grate) or use a food processor. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Spoon dough on a dehydrator tray with a teflex sheet and form into small round cookie. Place cookies close together on the sheets. Dehydrate at 105F degrees for 4 hours, turn cookies over and remove teflex sheet. Continue dehydrating until desired moisture is obtained, approximately 3-5 hours.

So sweat up a storm with your daily exercise and then award your cells with a fresh glass of veggie juice and a healthy energy cookie.

What a fantastic way to end a workout routine, eh?
