Hey guys, here are some post-workout meal ideas following yesterdays pre-workout food ideas.
Consuming the right nutrients after your workout 💪 is just as important as what you eat before.
During exercise 🏃🏻♀️ our muscles use up their glycogen stores for fuel.
This results in your muscles being partially depleted of glycogen. Some of the proteins in your muscles 💪 also get broken down and damaged.
After your workout 🏋🏻♀️, your body tries to rebuild its glycogen stores and repair and regrow those muscle proteins.
Eating the ✔︎ right nutrients soon after you exercise can help your body get this done faster. It is particularly important to eat carbs and protein after your workout.
Whole grain bread 🍞 with avocado🥑 , smoked salmon and 🍳egg.
Brown rice pasta 🍝with 🍣 salmon.
Tuna 🐟 , quinoa and 🥑 avocado 🥗salad.
Banana🍌 , almond butter and hemp seeds.
Chicken 🍗 and 🥦 vegetables.
While there’s so many other options available always try to consume carbs, proteins and fats that are easily digested.
Here are some examples of easily digested foods.
Example of carb options.
Sweet potatoes, quinoa, rice, rice cakes, oatmeal, fruits, pasta, dark leafy vegetables.
Example of protein options.
Animal or plant based protein, eggs, greek yoghurt, cottage cheese, salmon, chicken, protein bar, tuna.
Example of fats.
Avocado, nuts, nut butters, trail mix (dried fruits and nuts). .
I train first thing in the morning so after my workout I will generally have a protein shake consisting on whey protein, banana and almond milk.
I generally like to consume my protein shake / meals within 🧭 45 minutes after my workout.
Thats just my 🙋🏻♀️ personal preference.
Hope you found this helpful 🌸 and I hope you’re having a great day 😌
Xoxo Elaine 💖

I usually have protein shake with the option of yogurt in there with milk 😊
How do you do your Shake?
Avocado, salmon and egg is my fave! 🙌🏼
Protein shakes are killer!
Thank you for your awesome posts! They are greatly appreciated😁
Is cornflakes with milk is ok as post exercise food. I finish my exercise at 8.30pm
Tq for this
Is there a replacement we can use for seafood or almonds since I am allergic to it?
I exercise very late and feel like this would be too much?! Help
You are amazing! Thank you for this! Helps one know how to balance it out, especially for newbies like me 😊
I had salad 🥗 with salmon after my work out today 😀
Yes! SAVED 🙏
What’s more appetising than flesh? Putting a bird’s ovulation on top of it... YUMMY.
Posts like this make it so much easier for people like me who want to turn body fat into muscle but have no idea what food has what nutrients except protein-meat. Everyone says load up on carbs then they say to Google it when I ask lol.
So good ✨
I eat oatmeal🥰
