What is your body craving after a workout?

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Fluid and carbohydrates are the two most important fuels your body needs. Protein is also needed after high-intensity interval training or strength training due to the protein helping with muscle recovery. Getting these nutrients into your body within 30 minutes of exercising makes your body happy. It's during this time that it is able to most use these nutrients.

Be careful what you choose to feed your body because it can determine if the exercise gives you energy afterwards or slows you down. Some great snack choices are fruit and nuts, trail mix, protein bar (steer clear of sugar alcohols/sucralose!), veggies and hummus, almond butter on toast, or a smoothie.... Of course, our infamous protein shake is always a great option! If dairy brings you problems, try our new dairy-free version!
