At giveStrength, we understand that leaving one of our classes dripping wet with the sweat you worked hard to earn is one of the best feelings in the world. So how do you prolong this feeling after the sweat has dried, and you only have the lingering smell of eucalyptus to remember your workout by?
With a delicious, nutritious, post-workout snack - that's how!
Post-workout nutrition is incredibly important, no matter your goal. After a sweat session, your body is depleted and hungry for high-quality refueling. Eating a combo of protein and carbs within an hour or two after class can help you recover, repair your muscles, and boost your metabolism. And while we love healthy fats (hello, guac on everything), some studies show that consuming high amounts of fat after exercise may slow the absorption of other nutrients.
So, next time you're reveling in how amazing giving your all in class felt, keep the party going with one of our favorite post-sweat snacks!
