After exercise, food sources of antioxidants (in other words, all the ingredients in this recipe) are fabulously regenerative for the body. This recipe is also chock-full of electrolytes (such as the potassium, chloride, and magnesium in cantaloupe and coconut water) and trace minerals (from the small pinch of Himalayan pink salt) to replace what you sweated out; and it delivers protein (in the protein powder, flaxseeds and almonds) to aid in muscle building and repair. You can find a guide to some of my favorite protein powders here.
Tip: Store ground flaxseeds in the freezer to preserve their delicate fat and antioxidant content.
Methyl donors: flaxseed, almond, amino acids (in protein powder)
DNA methylation adaptogens: blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, almond, coconut water
