Fitability

Deb Bailey AFPA, MAT, CanFitPro, YMCA

When you've done your workout, you feel great - and hungry. But you resist eating a snack because you don't want to undo the good you just did, right?

But you need to have a light recovery snack of 10-15 grams of protein and 20-30 grams of carbs in the 30 minutes after your workout. Why? You will refuel your energy and encourage muscle recovery. 

Consider peanut butter spread on apple slices, a good-quality cheese with dates, or low fat plain yogourt with berries.
