The Best Post-Workout Meals

Here are some simple alive dishes rich in both protein and complex carbs to try after your next workout.

I don’t know about you, but after an intense workout I want to eat all the food. And occasionally I do. However, to avoid this happening on a regular basis, I have a few go-to post-workout meals that are not only quick and easy, but also consist of ingredients I typically keep standard in my kitchen.

Last night after circuit training I had one of my all-time favourite post-workout meals: sautéed kale with garlic, chili flakes, and a touch of shoyu; two eggs; and half an avocado. It’s simple, only uses one pan, and fills me up right good. Other times I’ll have a robust salad with chicken breast or tuna.

The key to a good post-workout meal is to consider the nutrients you’re losing during exercise, particularly carbs, which provide energy, and electrolytes. In addition, your body needs protein to repair muscle tissue.

Here are some simple alive dishes rich in both protein and complex carbs to try after your next workout.
