It might be hard to figure how to refuel post-workout without going overboard. Here's a simple solution-- turn to these five recommendations, courtesy of theKitchn.com:
Greek yogurt, banana, and peanut butter. This powerful protein-carbs-fat trio is a popular choice that is filling enough to satisfy them after a hard workout and hold them until their next meal, but not too heavy or calorie-saturated to blow all of your hard work.
A fruit smoothie made with yogurt, milk, or soy milk. Protein-packed fruit smoothies are another great option. The sugars from the fruit provide the necessary carbs for refueling, while the protein (from yogurt, powders, or nut butters) helps fill you up.
Nut or energy bars. A high-protein nut bar helps keep you from feeling sluggish throughout the day. It's also an easy and convenient snack, making it a preferred choice for those on-the-go.
Eggs, plus something starchy, like bread or potatoes. Once again, a little protein paired with carbs is the magic combination. In this case, put an egg on it! Eggs on toast, egg salad, eggs with sweet potatoes are a few variations.
Chocolate milk This was pretty surprising, but many have cited chocolate milk as their favorite post-workout pick-me-up.
