My top post-workout breakfasts
I joined the gym recently and apart from being just a smidge excited about all the new equipment to train with and of course the amazing muscle soreness as a result of said fun equipment, I had forgotten how hungry I am on gym days!
Running, yoga and body weight training just doesn’t create the same hunger as weights! I train in the morning and on gym days @fitnessfirstau I ensure my post workout meal portion is slightly larger than usual so I can sustain my energy for the day and not crash mid afternoon.
My go to post work out brekkies have been :
1. fruit, natural Greek or protein rich yoghurt, home made granola and hemp seeds/nuts for additional proteins
2. My fave mashed banana and 2 egg omelette so it’s yummy and sweet with a dollop of natural almond or peanut butter on top
3. If on the go a supercharged plant based protein smoothie (plenty of nutrient dense vegan protein powders on the market) with an additional piece of fruit
4. 2 eggs, sautéed spinach, sliced tomato, avo, chilli and some brown rice
There is always a source of protein, carbohydrates and fats.
Over the coming weeks I’ll be reaching out to my colleagues/health and nutrition professionals on their post-workout meals and snacks to share in an upcoming blog – stay tuned!
