Post Workout Nutrition Tips

What you eat post workout is just as important as what you eat pre workout. Make sure you eat to refuel and recover!

  • Post workout requires carbohydrates and protein for optimal recovery. A balanced meal (whole grains, lean proteins, and veggies) will do the job!
  • Aim for the 30 Minute Window: this is the amount of time when the bodily most efficiently utilizes food post workout. If you can’t make the deadline, don’t wait any longer than 2 hours to eat a nutritious meals or snack.
  • Not hungry for a meal? No problem. Try to have a small nutritious snack like fruit and yogurt, a small bowl of cereal, or a palm size of almonds and a piece of fruit.

  • Quinoa, beans, and bell peppers.
