Post workout meals – Part 2

Last time I told you about how important your post workout nutrition is when it comes to reaching your fitness goals.
Today, I will tell you about post workout meals as we discussed the supplements last time.
If you are one of those people who doesn’t believe in supplements, or sometimes you just don’t have a supplement in hand, then this video is for you.

You need to eat right and not let all the hardwork go to waste.
As I told you, Protein and carbs are the two keys to a good post-workout meal.

One of the best things to eat after a workout is eggs. egg whites of one egg contains 3.5g of protein. So if you are looking for approx 25g of protein like a scoop of whey, you need to consume around 7 eggs to get 24.5g of protein.
If you don’t want to eat just boiled eggs, you can even make an Egg omelet with avocado spread on toast.

Another very good option is Chicken. 100g of chicken contains 20g of protein.
You can have Grilled chicken with roasted vegetables.

Salmon – Not only will you get a large dose of protein, but the anti-inflammatory omega-3’s found in salmon will help rebuild your muscles and increase performance.
Salmon with sweet potato and quinoa or brown rice is another good option.

Oats with milk and a fruit like banana.
Milk is a good to consume post workout. But remember, milk also contains some amount of fat even if you drink cow milk.

Greek yogurt with fresh fruits or dried fruits.

Finally, replenishing lost water and electrolytes can complete the picture and help you maximize the benefits of your workout.
