Five healthy post workout snacks:
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.
Apple with almond or peanut butter is a healthy but delicious snack that delivers protein. Combining it with a little sweetness and texture it gives you a filling snack with plenty of nutrition that also restores your energy and muscles.
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.
Greek yoghurt and berries is nutrient-dense and has just the right amount of digestible protein to help restore and repair your muscles right after a workout.
Strawberry and banana smoothie. Combine two scoops of protein with banana and strawberry slices and either milk or water, depending on the length of your workout. Long, intense gym sessions require the extra calories and protein milk provides.
