Before workouts, it’s good to dive into some carbs for an energy boost, but post-workout, you’ll often want to reach for some protein to replenish and repair muscles. Nonfat yogurt with berries is always a tasty and satisfying option that will hold you over until the next meal, while also providing a quick fix dosage of protein. Avocado toast is another great option that quenches hunger
and works well in the energy, protein and fat department. Another favorite is going with simple eggs. Omelets, a scramble, hard boiled, anything and everything. If you’re craving a meaty protein, you can opt for some grilled veggies with chicken, tuna, or salmon! Half a sweet potato does the trick, or it’s always good to keep a roasted assortment in the fridge for moments like these.
If you’re craving something on the sweeter side, a watermelon smoothie (feel free to throw some greek yogurt for protein!) is a great pick. The high water content (98%) will help keep you hydrated post-sweat session.
And of course, there’s always quinoa.
