10 Post-workout snacks

10 Post-workout snacks

Other than rehydrating one of the most important things to do after a workout is to refuel your body. I know sometimes we think “I just did a workout, I can reward myself with a piece of cake.” Think again, please. Honestly, whatever you put into your body directly after working out might possibly be the most important thing you eat all day. When you workout your body uses up any energy from things you’ve consumed recently, and then uses up stored glycogen or protein. After you workout your body uses up any available protein source to help rebuild and refuel your muscles. That being said, do you see where I’m going here? Protein, protein, protein folks! Here are some good things to refuel your body with post-workout;

  1. Greek yogurt
  2. Protein shakes
  3. Whole grain cereal
  4. Eggs
  5. Quinoa
  6. Salmon
  7. Pita & hummus
  8. Apples & peanut butter
  9. Chocolate milk
  10. Trail mix
