Says Jurek, "This smoothie combines the anti-inflammatory ingredients of pineapple (bromelaine), ginger, turmeric, and Udo's Oil (omega-3 fatty acids).
It's a great daily postworkout drink, soothing aching muscles, and a terrific addition to your regular meals before your run on a long training day.
It has a fruity, sweet taste like Starburst candy and is loaded with healthy fat as well as carbohydrates and protein.
The miso replaces the salt and electrolytes lost in sweat. In Japan, miso is viewed as an endurance-booster.
Edamame provides an extra whole-food protein boost. Fresh turmeric root can be found in the produce section of natural foods stores. You will need a high-power blender to process the roots. If you don't have one, opt for the dried turmeric and ginger.
