Post-Workout Snacks to Refuel and Replenish

Grabbing a bite to eat after a strenuous workout is a must, as proper nutrients are essential to replenishing your body! We know, we know, you’re dying to start your “cheat meal a few days early, but you don’t have to sacrifice taste for health. We talked to Brooke Alpert, a NYC-based nutritionist and founder of B Nutritious, who knows exactly what your body needs to stay fit and healthy long after the workout is over. She dished to us a list of delicious snacks to treat yourself post-workout.

Apple with peanut butter

“This is an easy and very portable snack option, especially if you use the individual packets from Wild Friends Foods.”

Quick anti-inflammatory smoothie

“I love adding whey protein from Reserveage (they have a great unsweetened one!) to a smoothie for a great recovery. Throw in some coconut water and ½ cup pineapple, and you get all the recovery you could need from that HIIT workout!

Perfect Bar

“I love these bars! They are loaded with tons of nutrients, and they are delicious. My personal pick is the peanut butter flavor, and the smaller size is the perfect post-workout snack!”

Temple Turmeric Drinks

“The new dark cherry flavor is a great way to help your muscles recover. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and a great relief to your muscles after a tough workout with weights.”

Quinn Popcorn

“This popcorn is delicious and GMO-free. It’s a great snack any time of day, but also great for a post-workout to help replenish your glycogen stores.”

  1. Apple and peanut butter is one of my favorite running snacks. I eat it almost every day, even the days I don’t run! As simple as it sounds, chocolate milk is a great post-run snack too.
