I had surgery yesterday to repair some ligaments in my ankle that have finally gone kaput - thanks to years of gymnastics and tumbling.
One thing I'm focusing on is tailoring my diet to support my healing. Right now I'm in the acute inflammation phase and had this delicious smoothie this morning to support that processing.
Inflammation usually gets a bad wrap, but did you know that it's actually an essential part of healing - both for injury and post-training? There's a fine balance but inflammation helps to repair muscles and other tissues.
This smoothie includes ginger, turmeric, and dark red berries to help with inflammation, chia seeds for omegas, and protein for tissue repair.
