pounds and help your body recover. Check them out!
Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie
Toss a banana, a spoonful of peanut butter, some protein powder (or greens powder),
water in a blender and you’re good to go! Banana provides you with the carbs and
potassium you need to recover from your workout, while peanut butter provides you with
the necessary fats and essential proteins. Be sure though to use a peanut butter that
doesn’t have a lot of sugar in it.
Greek Yogurt + Healthy Toppings
Greek yogurt is high in protein and contains probiotics to help keep your digestive
system in check. It also goes well with all sorts of toppings like fresh berries, which are
low calorie and rich in antioxidants. We usually aim for plain greek yogurt as the
flavored ones usually have a high sugar content. Pour a little honey in for a natural
Turkey Roll Ups
They’re the perfect high protein, low carb snack. Take some veggies and cheese (if you
want) and roll them up in a slice of turkey. And just like that, you’re done! It’ll hold you
over until you’re ready for lunch or dinner.
Hummus & Veggies
Hummus and veggies are the perfect combo for a post-workout snack. They’re both low
in calories but high in nutrients that your body needs. Just about any veggie goes well
with hummus too - carrots, celery, cucumber, zucchini, whatever! Just be sure you’re
picking a hummus that’s not high in sugar and has mainly natural ingredients.
Avocado Toast & Egg
Avocado toast is already a healthy classic. Add an egg on top and you’ve got an even
healthier snack. The avocado toast has the carbs you need to recover from workout and
the healthy fat your body needs. Whether it’s fried, scrambled, or hard boiled, the egg
adds a high amount of protein to help your muscles recover as well. Sprinkle some
black pepper and red pepper flakes on top for a little spice too!
