Come on now, we have like ALL heard it…
YOU MUST EAT PROTEIN WITHIN 30 MINUTES OF WORKING OUT!
And guess what dollfaces??? As annoying as it may sound- or as impossible as it might sound it is SUPER important to your recovery and your body being able to KEEP UP with more workouts ALL week long! So importantly, you should eat a little something about an hour before your workout that has a little bit of carbs to give you some energy for your workout but AFTER you need PROTEIN!
And unless you are Chad from this past season of The Bachelorette you probably aren’t walking around with plates of meats or biting into a sweet potato while you catch up on emails. So I have created a little list of perfect,
HEALTHY GIRL ON THE GO AFTER WORKOUT SNACKS
Let’s start like SUPER simple…
I’m not gunna lie MORE times than not this is my GO-TO snack if I am doing a later afternoon workout- because it keeps me full until dinner! Oh, and OBVI ALL THE LEMON PEPPER and Tabasco as you please 😉
Turkey Bacon, Heirloom Tomato, & Avocado
I think this is my favorite because it reminds me of a BLT, and heirloom tomato’s are just FANCY and SO DANG GOOD. And I mean- PERSONALLY, I think this tastes even better cold for some reason making it ZEE BEST on-the-go snack.
Salmon, Avocado, & Lemon BOWL
A little salmon-canned or fresh, 1/2 an avocado, 1/2 a lemon, Mrs. Dash Seasoning- and mix it ALL up. The perfect little on-the-go BOWL and all you need is a fork OH- and maybe a little Tabasco. If you workout in the evenings this is even more perfect because can ALSO double as dinner if you add some fresh veggies, or a good almond flour tortilla!
Darlings, you know the importance I place on eating fresh, nutrient rich food BUT when in a rush grabbing a good protein shake or protein bar is BETTER than not eating and letting your body recover properly!! So eat up, try planning ahead for those Healthy Girl On The Go SNACKS, or know where you can make pit stops to grab some on those CRAZY DAYS!
Now, for all my DENVER GALS this weekend the new FABLETICS store opens in Cherry Creek and it’s AMAZING!! AND they are giving leggings to the FIRST 50 people!!
I recently became a fan of Fabletics and I don’t think this obsession is going anywhere. Their leggins are SO flattering (and all high waisted) and have the BEST patterns and colors! But I think my favorite thing is all of their street style options- this chambray skirt is from them and I can’t stop getting compliments!
Healthy Girls On The Go GOTTA Look CUTE 😉
