Post Workout Nutrition
You have probably heard that what you eat post-workout is important. In someways it is the most important meal because it affects how your body recovers from the workout. By eating the right things, you can bounce back quicker from a hard workout & This is the most optimal time for protein synthesis and replenishing glycogen in the muscles. The macro nutrients that our body needs to do this post workout are protein and carbs.
As you can see, what you eat or drink after a workout is really important! This smoothie gives you carbs and protein in a very delicious way. When I am wrapping up a workout or a run, I am already looking forward to this smoothie. It’s super creamy and the perfect blend of chocolate and peanut butter. Good nutrition doesn’t have to taste bad!
