Re-fuelling your body with protein & carbs is essential after a workout! Here are some of my favourite post-workout recipes…
Almond Butter Chia Toast: No doubt you’ve already heard about how obsessed I am with this breakfast! I honestly can’t get enough. Almond butter is a great source of protein and contains nearly three times as much vitamin E, twice as much iron, and seven times more calcium than peanut butter. Don’t be fooled by the size of chia seeds, these tiny seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch. In fact “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength,” so, it’s a no brainer for this recipe to be on my post-workout radar. Plus it tastes freak’n delicious!
Feel Good Protein Smoothie: Packed with so many nutritious and delicious ingredients, if you haven’t tried this green smoothie I highly recommend you do. The protein powder will help speed muscle repair after hard workouts, leading to faster recovery, which is just what we want! If you’re wondering what Psyllium husk is, it’s an edible soluble fiber and prebiotic. You can find it in the health food isles at the supermarket or your local health food store!
Tiramasu Overnight Oats: Whip up this recipe the night before and I can guarantee your future, post-workout self will thank you! The oats will help to replenish your hardworking muscles and when breakfast tastes like dessert it’s a ‘yes’ from me!
Green Shakshuka: After my weekend workouts I love digging in to some form of eggs as they are such a high source of protein. KIC’s take on the classic shaksuka is literally packed full of green goodness with spinach, pesto, peas, leek and kale. This recipe is packed with much needed vitamins, minerals and fibers!
Pasta Primavera: When I head out for an afternoon run I’ll almost always have pasta for dinner! This recipe is so simple and the versatility is endless, it’s our new go-to mid-week meal to use up the veggies in the fridge!
