What to Eat Post-Workout

The most important meal you cant eat, besides from breakfast of course, is the one you eat after your workout. This is because for about an hour after your workout, there’s a period of time when your muscles are literally starving for nutrients, and the meal you eat at this time is crucial for building muscle and replenishing energy sources.

Here are the best things you could eat after a workout–

PROTEIN (repair and growth for muscles) and AMINO ACIDS (the building blocks for protein)

  • Eggs
  • Peanut butter
  • Nuts
  • Whey and soy protein
  • Chicken (or any other low fat meat)
  • Salmon
  • Tuna

This chicken peanut butter wrap will give you plenty of power!

CARBOHYDRATES (provides fuel)

  • Oatmeal
  • Brown rice
  • Grains (like quinoa or amaranth)
  • Vegetables and fruits
  • potatoes

You can’t go wrong with a sandwich after a workout. Check this one out! It’s leaded with protein.
