Obviously we are all starving after a workout. At least I am! But, what to eat after getting your run on? Here are a few foods that are the perfect go-to.
Eggs- This one is by far my favorite. This girl loves eggs and I eat them every morning when I return from the gym. They have both carbs and protein which is what you body is craving and are only 70 calories each.
Bananas- Not only are they a "good carb" they also help rebuild damaged muscles.
Salmon- Don't want to eat eggs for dinner? No problem. Salmon also helps rebuild your muscles and is an anti-inflammatory.
Nuts- If you are in a hurry and jetting to work after this is the perfect post workout snack to toss in your gym or handbag. My favorite is the antioxidant boost from Nature Box (www.naturebox.com). I always have it handy when I know I'm running errands after the gym. The best part about this one is that it doesn't waste any time getting to your system. It pack a quick punch of good carbs, fat, and protein.
Chocolate Milk- You better believe it! Not only is it delicious, it's good for you too! Same as the others, this has protein and helps rebuild muscle. Also, it will satisfy your sweet tooth so you don't go for an unhealthy treat instead.
Now that you are prepared go for a run..bikini season is almost here!
