Who doesn't love snacks?

Tuesday tip: Great snacks, particularly post workout, include the combination of protein and carbohydrate. You need to refuel your body with nutrients to repair msucle tissue while also replinishing your energy (glycogen) stores.

Protein shake with banana, protein mix, chocolate milk and ice blended together.

Peanut butter and banana on whole grain tortilla (or rice cakes, or whole grain bread)

Pita and Hummus: one of my faves, but watch your portion size! Count out your chips or do something to combat mindless munching.

Apple slices or bananas with peanut butter are another go-to quick and healthy option. Just remember to go easy on the PB!
Yogurt (particularly greek yogurt) and berries or almonds. You could also make this into a small parfait by adding a touch of granola

 For you meat eaters (or semi-vegetarians), a bit of lean meat with a side of fruit would be a good choice as well.

 What are some of your favorite post-workout snacks?
