Pineapple Protein Smoothie

Autumn shmautumn! Lets bring back summer for a while with this zinger of a pineapple smoothie, and boost our digestive systems while we’re at it, for lemon and pineapple are the perfect pairing to get things moving through nicely.

To effectively digest protein and thus use it for repair and muscle building, you need a strong digestive system. There are two main tiers to good digestion: stomach acid and enzymes. Stomach acid is needed to break the protein particles into smaller ones then enzymes are required to do the rest of the work. Without these two elements, proteins would pass straight through you. Luckily lemon can boost stomach acid and pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain to break down protein.

In a nutshell: you should make this smoothie.
