Athletes have used bone broth for recovery and rehydration for decades. Now that the beverage has gone mainstream, you don’t need a slow cooker and tons of freezer space to enjoy it. Look for a pre-made brand, like BRU bone broth, which uses organic chicken and grass-fed beef bones, plus fresh vegetables and root juices for added nutrients. “Bone broth is calming, nourishing, filling, and provides collagen and anti-aging benefits,” says Jacobs. Substitute your afternoon latte with a warm cup of bone broth to curb those 3 o’clock cravings or use it as a base for a filling soup lunch.
Protein helps to repair, maintain, and grow muscles. Alyssa Mandell Sparks, a holistic nutritionist and senior instructor at SPEIR Pilates prepares smoothies daily to maintain joint and ligament health. “Your post-workout smoothie should offer you both protein and carbohydrates, and we should be drinking this smoothie during the 30 minutes following our workout for optimal absorption,” she says. You can add standard whey protein powders or look to plant-based sources of protein to enhance your muscle recovery smoothies. Get the recipes here.
