What To Eat Post Workout

As I wrote earlier, it’s very important to put the proper fuel in our body for recovery. We need to refuel, rebuild and rehydrate. Here are a couple of ideas for post workout meals.

If just doing cardio, one option is to have whole wheat crackers, fresh fruit with high water content and cheese. This is to rehydrate and replenish electrolytes while maximizing post-exercise calorie burning.

A post workout recovery meal for HIIT or high intensity interval training and/or weightlifting might look like this:

A power fruit smoothie with protein powder and a workout snack, for example banana and peanut butter on a rice cake. The goal is to replace energy stores within 30 minutes after the workout and to repair muscle tissue.

You get the idea! Enjoy your workout and your meal!
