Snacks to help repair your body

November 27, 2012 1 comment

Ok by popular request, more snack suggestions for after a good workout session

Protein bar: For a quick, store-bought fix, feed those muscles with a protein bar. Just watch the sugar content. Look for bars with 10-30 grams of protein, less than 10 grams of sugar, and the fewest number of ingredients you can’t pronounce!

Beef and squash: Need something hearty? Try a handful of lean roast beef with an equal portion of butternut squash.

Tuna crackers: Mix up a batch of light tuna salad for a quick bite. Add two heaping spoonfuls to a handful of whole grain crackers.

Milk and cereal: Any time is a good time for cereal. Add 1 cup of low-fat milk to 1 cup of whole-grain cereal.

Chocolate milk: One to two cups of low-fat chocolate milk, good blend of extra carbs and protein.

Cottage cheese crunch: One cup fat-free cottage cheese, 1 teaspoon honey, ½ cup whole-grain cereal, and some cinnamon.
