5 Perfect Post-Workout Meals

_____

You just finished a tough workout...now what? Whether you are trying to lose weight, get healthy, or hit strength goals it is important to fuel your body post workout to get the best results. Making the right food choices can help to rebuild muscles, possibly prevent soreness, and diminish fatigue. To do this, choose healthy, nutrient-dense options that contain carbohydrates and protein. 

 

Here are 5 delicious options that are easy and simple to make, post-workout:

5 Perfect Post-Workout Meals

1. Avocado Toast with Eggs

This is a great way to fuel your body after a hard workout. It is full of healthy fats, protein, and carbs to help you regain energy and heal faster.

- 1 Slice of Sourdough Bread

- 2 Eggs Over-Easy

-1/4 of an Avocado Mashed on Toasted Sourdough

- Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on top

2. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a great way to re-fuel after a workout. Oatmeal is full of healthy carbs, protein, and fats depending on what you top it with. Here's how I love my post-workout oats:

- 1/2 c. Steel Cut Oats                                       - Wild Blueberries

- 1 tsp. Cinnamon                                              - 2 Tbsp. Nut Butter

- 1 c. Water                                                        - Drizzle of Honey

- Chopped Raw Walnuts

3. Protein Smoothie w/ Moringa Powder

A protein smoothie after a workout is a great recovery meal. Adding Moringa into these smoothies provides so many beneficial properties for your body!

- 1 c. Milk of Choice                           - 1 Frozen Banana

- 1 Tbsp. Moringa Powder                  - Ice

- Handful of Spinach                           - Protein Powder of Choice

 4. Globe Trekker Mix w/ Yogurt

Globe Trekker mix is nutrient-dense, energizing trail mix that would pair perfectly with some protein-filled yogurt.

- 1 c. Yogurt of choice (dairy or dairy-free)

- Globe Trekker mix sprinkled on top

- Drizzle of Honey (optional)

5. Brown Rice & Egg Combo

This combo is delicious. It's crispy, full of protein, and filling - perfect for recovery after a hard workout!

- 1/2 c. Brown Rice in non-stick pan

- 2 Eggs mixed into the brown rice

Without refueling your body, you might experience extreme tiredness, low blood-sugar levels, and possible injury in the future.

Make sure you treat your body right!
