Post-Workout Snacks

Wondering what to eat after a work out? Look no further! The following snacks listed below have a combination of carbs and proteins that will quickly recharge lost energy. Best of all, these delicious snacks are inexpensive and easy to make.

1. Greek Yogurt- Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt and contains probiotics. Add some fruit and nuts for a sweeter taste and you’ve got yourself a quick and delicious snack!

2. Banana & Peanut Butter- Peanut butter tastes good with just about anything! Pairing it up with bananas is definitely the way to go when it comes to fueling up after a workout. This is because bananas are rich in potassium, a mineral that is often lost while breaking a sweat.

3. Quinoa: Quinoa is a high-fiber, high-protein grain that should be eaten after a workout. Mix it in with some veggies, feta cheese, and a little bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar to create a light and flavorful meal.

4. Green Smoothie:  Smoothies are very easy to make. They provide a simple way to get the protein and carbs you need once you’ve finished an exercise, and antioxidants that fight cell damage or inflammation. Blend spinach, yogurt, almond milk, and the fruit of your choice.

5. AB & J Rice Cakes: This snack is a healthier twist on the classic PB & J sandwich. Take two rice cakes and spread 1 tablespoon of almond butter, as well as 1 teaspoon of strawberry jam on top.
