10 recommended post-workout snacks

Thursday, September 27, 2007

During weight training you use muscle glycogen stores to fuel the workout. Those stores must be replenished for optimal muscle recovery as well as muscle growth and repair, so you will need carbohydrates as well as protein. Foods with both that are also low in fat are the best for you.

Here are 10 great post-workout snacks:

  1. Skim milk (not only does it have protein and carbohydrates, it also has lots of water, which will help replace fluids lost from sweating)
  2. Yogurt
  3. Bagel with turkey breast slices (add desired veggies and mustard)
  4. Tuna salad (made with non-fat mayo) on whole-wheat bread
  5. Banana shake made with banana, orange juice and vanilla yogurt
  6. Jar of sports drink and a cup of non-fat cottage cheese
  7. Juice and a handful of dry-roasted soy nuts
  8. Low-fat or non-fat cheese and crackers
  9. Vegetable bean soup and a roll
  10. Dried fruit and low-fat cheese
All these snacks are easy to find in Tesco, Carrefore and Giant.. try it out and see!
