How Much & When?
For Day to Day
It's important to spread out your protein intake throughout the day to ensure your consistently supplying your body with the goods (aka amino acids required to do the jobs needed). Aim to include ~15-20g of protein into snacks and ~20-40g of protein into main meals each day. Remember more is not always better, our bodies have limited capacity to digest and utilise protein.
When it comes to recovery the aim is to stop the body breaking down muscle so it can begin the repair process. The first step is to refuel within 30 minutes of exercise so your body can get the nutrients on board to do the job. Carbohydrates and protein are a good combination for this, so aim to include ~20g of good quality protein immediately post-exercise then don't forget to keep including it into meals and snacks to support ongoing recovery.
Adding a banana to your protein adds carbohydrates and other nutrients making it more of a complete recovery smoothie. It also adds sweetness and makes it super creamy if your banana is frozen.
