Tony Horton and his P90X workout program is top dog right now. Probably the most popular workout program of all time…or soon to be.
Why? Because it has you busting your ass for over an hour a day. It tells you the what, when, how and why of getting super fit and guides you along the way. As a typical up-sell with the actual program videos they offer a Results and Recovery Formula that is recommended after every workout.
Now, the recovery drink itself is pretty much what you would expect: protein, vitamins, amino acids, supplemented with creatine and full of sugar (fructose). However it is actually tasty. Dare I say, delicious; it tastes like an Orange Julius.
Long story short, you can significantly increase the healthy properties of your recovery drink by adding some fresh greens. I recommend using one of these green powerhouses: kale, wheatgrass, watercress or even some lamb’s quarters weed if you can find some.
