The Popeye



This isn't the first time I've mentioned this fantastic and simple post-workout concoction. It's called the Popeye, and I started every morning with one when I worked at Bonobo's where they sell like crazy. Just blend fresh young Thai coconut water with a handful of spinach and you have everything you need to replenish your electrolytes, protein, and minerals. That is if you work out like me, which is 45-75 minutes of weight resistance, yoga stretches and cardio. All you hardcore athletes should look into a Brendan Brazier or Tim VanOrden plan to meet your nutritional needs. Btw, you can also throw in some of the coconut meat as well but I prefer to keep it light and frothy. The perfect drink for a hot summer.

I love that combo, too. I like to add a squeeze of lime to help the body assimilate the iron in the spinach, too. :)

PS... I still have to make it to Bonobos while I'm here.

XO,
