Being a bar owner and workout nut, I wanted to share some simple yet highly effective recipes to use when trying to refuel your body after a good workout.
Obviously, you will want to supplement any food you eat with plenty of water, or a low calorie, low sugar flavored beverage. I personally really enjoy Bai, but there are many similar products that are just a good on the market.
The main ingredients in a post workout meal should include the following:
Lean protein (chicken, beef, fish).
Healthy complex carbs for energy (remember carbs are only bad if you have to many, or are not active). I prefer quinoa.
Healthy fat (such as in nuts or other legumes).
Vegetables (steamed broccoli are my favorite).
Stick with the above and you are well on your way to having a great post workout snack or meal.
