You just finished an intense, grueling session at the gym. But now the real question:
What do you eat?!
Eating after your workout is much more important than you may think.
In fact, if you don’t eat after your workout, most benefits seem to be merely lost without the proper fuel to charge your body back up.
I don’t know about you, but after I finish a long workout, the last thing I want to do, is cook for hours.
So QUICK is my main goal after workouts.
One of my personal favorite is sweet potatoes.
These can easily be cooked in the microwave OR you can have them pre-boiled and ready to go in your fridge.
I like to pair my “carb” with a “protein” such as
– lean ground beef,
– fish, etc.
The possibilities are endless.
What you should really aim for is getting in a solid meal within an hour after your workout, with both ample amounts of carbs and proteins.
I find that helps the most!
