So you worked out huh? Great job! You did something good for your body today and for your health tomorrow.
Now don’t go crazy treatin’ yourself! Too many people make that mistake after a draining work out. People think, hmm I did weights for 30 minutes so I deserve a ginormous piece of cake. NO! You deserve to see results, and possibly a massage from a loving other, but don’t take back what you just worked hard for! It becomes a total waste of time, and we don’t have time for that do we?
Usually after a difficult workout people are hungry and make the quick mistake of grabbing whatever is nearby, no matter the calories or nutritional value. But, that can be helped! Always have a quick snack ready for you after a work out if you typically fall into this trap.
Below are the snacks that I almost always have in the kitchen ready for me after a workout. When I go to the gym after a work day I’m famished and exhausted by the time I arrive home, so having these snacks on hand is a huge help and way to prevent a feasting frenzy.
