Post Workout Meal Ideas


It is important to pay attention to the food you eat after a Balmoral beach boot camp workout. No matter when you choose to workout, it is of vital importance to follow it up with meals rich in protein and carbohydrates. Proteins are highly effective in helping the fatigued muscles to recover while carbohydrates are excellent for replenishing energy stores.

A Hearty Breakfast with Green Protein Smoothie

Dangerously Fit personal trainers say that the best way to include green vegetables into your breakfast menu is by making a delightfully nutritious green protein smoothie. You could try some lacinato or spinach as the main ingredient as these two vegetables do not have overpowering taste. To give your smoothie a protein boost you could add frozen and shelled organic edamame or may be a measure of spirulina-based proteins. You could blend these with coconut water or simply water and make a superb smoothie.
