Your post-workout fuel should be packed with protein and carbs to boost muscle tone and replenish your energy. Here’s our favorite recipe to do just that.
We’ve been talking a lot lately about how to boost your workout performance with proper nutrition. In addition to knowing what to eat before and after your workouts, you need to pay attention to ingredients.
Protein and carbohydrates are both important for achieving great results, but the type of protein and carbohydrate definitely matters. Chocolate milk, for example, is sometimes touted as a great post-workout snack… But while it does contain both carbohydrate and protein, it also contains sugar and processed ingredients.
Enter these protein bars. They’re affordable, easy to make at home, and they give you a ton of great nutrients. Oats provide healthy, whole grain carbohydrates, while Collagen Sports Greens offer protein, including 16 grams from plant-based watermelon seeds and 10 grams of bone- and joint-supporting collagen per serving.
