Post-Workout Nutrition: When & What to Eat After the Gym
1 Piece of Whole Wheat Toast + Tuna + Lemon: Skip the mayo on this version. If you need a little more flavor, add in spicy mustard or a little bit of mashed avocado.
Turkey & Apple: Maybe sounds like a strange combo, but it's actually quite tasty. You can also add cheese to this (or go for apple+cheese or turkey+cheese if the turkey/apple combo isn't appealing).
Protein Shake: This is probably the ideal thing to eat post-workout. Your body can more easily digest liquids so if you can make it a liquid meal, go for it. For an easy shake, blend a banana with protein powder and almond (or skim) milk. If you're on the go and can't get to a blender, buy a shaker bottle (like this one from Perfect Fit) which you can easily mix powder and water wherever you are. Maybe not as tasty as a smoothie but it will get you the proper protein you need.
