After a workout it is just as important to consume the right nutrients as it is pre workout. We have listed five of our favourite post workout snacks.
Almonds are great because you can keep them in your handbag, desk or in the car. The protein helps your muscle recovery, and they deliver a massive amount of nutrients.
Hummus and pitta bread gives you both carbs and protein. Coupled with the slow-release energy from the whole wheat pita, it makes for a snack that'll keep you fuelled for hours.
Peanut butter and banana on rice cakes are a great snack as bananas are full of natural sugar, eating one as an after-workout snack is ideal. Spread two brown rice cakes with a half tablespoon peanut butter each, then top each with a quarter of a sliced banana for one of the best post-workout snacks.
Sardines aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but they contain lots of omega-3 and are also loaded with calcium, along with B vitamins, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese.
Sweet potatoes make the for the perfect post-workout snack because they are packed with vitamins and nutrients, including vitamins B6, C, D, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Serve with some lean protein like chicken breast.
