Sometimes simple is best. With a teaspoon of butter, your favourite spices, two eggs and a sprinkle of feta you get an easy post workout meal full of a spectrum of protein. Your body will use this to build muscle as you sleep.

Everyone’s got different goals. Some people believe that you should get some protein powder in you quick – within an hour – after a workout or even immediately afterward or during!
I never eat during my workout. If I eat before a workout is usually something very light like a banana with peanut butter or some Greek yogurt with berries. I try to drink as much water as I can get in before a workout though.
I’m not one of those people who believes you need to eat immediately after a workout. Intermittent fasting works for me so drinking water immediately after workout is the best thing for my body.
But if I am hungry after a workout you bet I’ll eat! I try listen to my body but keep my fuel choices sensible. Today about 45 minutes after my workout I drink a glass of cold buttermilk. It’s high in protein and tastes like plain yogurt. Why do I drink it? Because I love the taste and I always have. It’s slightly sour and sick and I just love it.
Then I cut up a tomato and basil chicken sausage and fried it in a little bit of olive oil. I added two beaten eggs seasoned with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. I added a splash of cold water, beat the mixture some more and poured onto my browned sausages for a light fluffy frittata.
So today my post workout was packed with fats and protein. Also I drink lots of water! I ate a few pistachios too a little after since I was still hungry.
Everyone eats different things post workout. Every body is different. What do you eat after workout?

I like that they have chocolate milk on the chart. I used to work out, break my fast with chocolate milk and then eat a spinach salad with avocado and chicken breast!
