Post Workout Snacks

After an intense workout or run, it's important to replenish your body with fluids and nutrients. Here are some good snacks to grab within the first 30 minutes of a good workout.

• Bread, a bagel, or an English muffin with cheese or peanut butter

• Dried fruit and nuts

• Cottage cheese with fruit

• Fruit juice with cheese

• Yogurt with fruit

• Veggie omelet with toast or roll

• Chocolate milk

• Cereal with milk

• Eggs and toast

• Turkey, ham, chicken, or roast beef sandwich

• Vegetable stir-fry with chicken, shrimp, edamame or tofu

• Crackers with low fat cheese

• Rice or popcorn cakes with nut butter

• Smoothie (with milk, yogurt, or added protein powder)

• A protein or energy bar

• A protein or energy shake

• Pancakes and eggs

• Any regular meal that contains lean protein, starch, and vegetables


I usually grab a 1/2 peanut butter sandwich and a glass of chocolate milk. What's your post workout snack?
