5 HEALTHY POST-WORKOUT SNACKS

If you've been following my blog for a while, you may know that I love food, and I am getting married soon. In order to get that wedding body, I've committed to doing the Kayla Itsines Bikini Workout. However, the big foodie that I am still cannot resist food and I couldn't help feeling dizzy post-workout.

I came across some tips from the registered dietician at Nuts.com, who shared that after a workout, your body enters recovery mode. Instead of avoiding carbs complete, a blend of carbohydrates and protein is the perfect nutrient mix to refuel tired muscles.

Hurray!! Bring on all the roasted potatoes and rice!

Nuts.com shared that not all carbs are equal, and suggested these healthy lifting snacks that will aid in recovery:

1. Power Trail Mix (17g carbs, 3 g protein)
This delicious power trail mix is crunchy, flavoursome and oh-so-delicious. I love munching on them just as a snack.


2. Edamame (17g carbs, 9g protein)
Edamame is young soybean that has been harvested before the beans had a chance to harden. Commonly served as a snack in Japanese restaurant, edamame is the perfect pick-me-up snack.


3. Raw Sprouted Granola (23g carbs, 8g protein)
A mix of goodies, granola is packed with nutrients needed for a good recovery. I love to mix them through fat-free yoghurt for breakfast.


4. Raw Chocolate Chip Granola Bites (36g carbs, 8g protein)
This is just the perfect snack for chocolate lovers to clear my foodie conscience!


5. Beef Jerky (13g carbs, 11g protein)
Great for munching on in between meals, beef jerky is a good source of protein while you're on-the-move.
