Whether you are working out in the gym, running a half marathon, or doing yoga in your living room, eating healthy after your workout is a must. 

Here are five our favorite go-to healthy post-workout snacks:

1. Trail Mix/Granola. 

Trail mix is great because it provides healthy fats, carbs, and fiber, and it’s a good source of protein.

2. Apples and Peanut Butter. 

Apples are good for you. They provide energy, fiber, and satisfy your sweet tooth. Dollop on a tablespoon of peanut butter and you’re ready to go.

3. Smoothie with Protein.  

Smoothies that include fruit and a scoop of protein powder make great post-workout snacks. You can also add a little nut butter and almond milk. So yummy.

4. Avocado Toast. 

I’ll take that! The healthy fats, protein, and whole grains make this a muscle recharge must! Use wholesome bread like Ezekiel bread for the toast.

5. Energy Bar/Protein Bar. 

Energy bars are the ultimate goodness. Find one with low or no sugar, about 10gm of protein, and no artificial ingredients.

And the best time to eat these healthy snacks is within 30 minutes after your workout. Eating after your workout restores energy in your muscles and repairs muscle damage. If you wait too long to eat, you will have passed the threshold to recharge and repair your muscles by half.
