Post-Workout Nutrition:Other than breakfast, this could be your most important time to take in food. After exercise (or a game) your body has used up its stores of energy and you need to replenish or “fill the tank back up”. Your body will be like a sponge for nutrients and fluids and you have a 2-hour window where your body is most receptive to nutrients.
Today I will be sharing a recipe from the food network. Salmon is nutrient dense providing protein and omega-3 fatty acids that will help with muscle/tissue growth, a healthy heart, and brain function. This recipe is great for lunch or dinner, so fire up your grill and enjoy this delicious meal.
Quest is bringing back their free sample program. Be sure to get your bars. I love this stuff. It's clean, has anywhere from 18-20 gramms of protein, filling and makes a perfect post/pre workout snack. My personal favorite is the white chocolate raspberry. Just be advised that if you happen to be allergic to almonds, most bars do contain them. Try them out and let me know what you think! -> https://www.facebook.com/QuestNutrition?sk=app_733419926675832
If you’re like many women, yourbreakfast and lunch tend to be light and you rake in most of your protein at dinner via lean options like chicken or fish. On paper that sounds like a healthy diet plan, but it turns out that loading most of your protein into one sitting may not be getting you the results you’re after.
It goes without saying that the best way to eat is to have 'meats, vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar.' Trust me, I've experimented with every fad diet there is, as well as the recommendations from the FDA, and ultimately my results went up exponentially when I subscribed to the above. However, there's an emphasis today on what quantity of each macronutrient one should ingest on a daily basis.
