Post Strength Training Snacks

October 27, 2016

Post Strength Training Snacks
Snacks following light strength training (lighter weights and more reps i.e 3 sets of 15)
These snacks are incredibly simple to throw together and can even be tossed in your gym bag before you head to your workout.

Homemade granola made with whole oats, dried fruit and nuts
Low-fat chocolate milk
Non-fat Greek yogurt
1 banana with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1/2 cup of edamame
Snacks for after intense strength training (heavier weights, lower reps i.e. 6-9 and big body movements)
These snacks are a little bit more like meals. After an intense strength training workout is not the time to being worried about counting calories, though you don't want to blow it out of the water and go crazy.

Protein smoothie made with 1 scoop high quality whey protein isolate powder, banana, almond milk, frozen berries and spinach
Two scrambled eggs, with two slices of whole wheat toast, and sliced avocado
Grilled chicken on high protein whole grain tortilla with hummus and cucumbers
Quinoa with black beans, diced grilled tofu, chopped kale, olive oil, and sea salt
Tuna (mixed w non-fat plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo) on whole wheat pita with romaine lettuce and roasted red peppers
