5 Best post workout snacks

5 Best post workout snacks:

Post workout = within two hours of working out.

Your post workout meal is the most important for your protein synthesis, What is protein synthesis? Protein synthesis is one of the most fundamental biological processes by which individual cells build their specific proteins. More detail at proteinsynthesis.

Number one is my go to post workout choice and I try to have it within 20 minutes of finishing my workout

1 – 20gm Vega Protein and greens (Vanilla), 5gm maca powder and 10gm cocopops (or your favorite cereal) – I put them together in a container and after I have finished I mix it all together in my shaker cup with 250ml water. It’s a chocolate milkshake with a crunch.

2 – Popcorn (2 popped cups) and 20gm whey protein – pop your organic corn in a air-popping maker and when its warm shake it in a bag with your preferred whey protein. This is a good travel snack too.

3 – Chocolate Milk 200ml

4 – Crackers (2 rivitas) and Chilli Tuna (60gm drained)

5 – 100gm Cottage cheese and 1/2 cup grapes

These are a few of my go to post workout snacks. If you’re more interested in the details of pre, during & post-workout nutrition here are two great articles I found on TNation here & here. Enjoy the read.

    1. Hello Pippa, Thanks. I love the vega protein(wish I was a vega sponsored athlete!) been using it for three years. try a few others along the way but always go back to Vega. I now only buy vanilla and add my own favor to it if I feel like a different one. What workouts do you do mainly?
