Four Delicous Post Workout Meals

What is the best post-workout meal? Simple! One that is designed to restore and rebuild muscle! Here are 4 non-traditional after workout meals to provide all the nutrition you need after you workout sesh!

 

Chicken with Zoodles
Long ribbons of zucchini twirl around a fork like ramen or soba noodles in this dish that can be eaten hot or cold. Use a spiralizer or vegetable peeler to make zoodles, then quickly sauté them in a pan coated with nonstick spray until just cooked, about 3 minutes. Top with the remaining ingredients and stir to evenly distribute.

1 cup zucchini noodles
4 oz. cooked chicken
½ cup organic edamame, shelled
1 tsp. sesame oil
Chopped fresh ginger, green onions, chili pepper 

 

Turkey Burger
Instead of hitting the drive-through window, sink your teeth into a juicy, homemade turkey burger patty after your workout.

Season lean ground turkey with salt, pepper, and any herbs or spices from the meal plan’s free foods list, then shape into 4-oz. patties. Grill or broil about 5 minutes per side.

 

This post-workout meal has:

2 large lettuce leaves
2 slices tomato
1 slice onion
1 (4-oz.) turkey patty
½ cup sweet potato
1 tsp. olive oil

 

Cottage Cheese Combo
Give cottage cheese a flavor update by combining it with juicy tomatoes, crunchy cucumber slices, and creamy garbanzo beans.

A sprinkling of smoked paprika (or regular paprika or chili powder, if you prefer) adds bold, savory flavor.

This post-workout meal has:

¾ cup cottage cheese (2%)
½ cup garbanzo beans
½ cup cucumber
½ cup cherry tomatoes
1 tsp. olive oil
Dash smoked paprika

Chicken and Egg Bowl
There is no need to question which came first, just which one you will eat first — the chicken or the egg? Both pack lean protein into this light and lovely grain bowl.

We used brown rice, but you can swap in amaranth, barley, quinoa, or another whole grain.

This post-workout meal has:

¾ cup mixed baby greens
¼ cup cherry tomatoes
2 oz. cooked chicken
1 hard-boiled egg
½ cup cooked brown rice
1 tsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
