Celebrity trainer and Five Pounds author Harley Pasternak — who’s responsible for toning up Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Katy Perry, and more — is used to fitting an explosive workout into a jam-packed schedule. Fitting in a healthy meal is a little harder, which is why Pasternak turns to smoothies as a way to get good-for you protein, fiber, and fats on the go.
His trick: Add avocado to your blend. It’s got plenty of healthy fats and fiber to fill you up and keep you satisfied, plus nutrients that nourish your hair and skin. Watch the video above for more tips from Pasternak, and find his favorite recipe below. Giving it a try? Share the results on Instagram and tag @YahooHealth.
