Wether you decide to go for a jog, do some yoga or simply stretch, what you put in your mouth after should be something healthy and nutritious. Every workout demands your body to be well fueled right after.
According to Authority Nutrition “When you’re working out, your muscles use up their glycogen stores for fuel. This results in your muscles being partially depleted of glycogen. Some of the proteins in your muscles also get broken down and damaged. After your workout, your body tries to rebuild its glycogen stores and repair and regrow those muscle proteins. Eating the right nutrients soon after you exercise can help your body get this done faster. It is particularly important to eat carbs and protein after your workout.”
Here are a some ideas on what meals to eat after a workout :
1. chopped brussels sprout salad
with chicken and walnuts
2. Berry Chia Overnight Oats
3. Bacon, Arugula, California Avocado and Tomato Sandwiches
5. Salmon Kebab
