About a week ago I did an in-depth breakdown of the foods that I like to eat before running, depending on the type of workout and distance I’ll be doing.
As a follow-up to that post, today I’ll share a look at what I like to eat after running.
This is a great question, because eating the right foods at the right times before your workouts can greatly improve your performance. So today, I’ll answer this question in detail for you all!
No, seriously…. Would you? Because it exists.
OK, it’s actually less like ice cream and more like a sorbet. The point is, it’s a frozen treat, it’s called Ortaggi and I tried it last night after my first ever spin class at Flywheel. (Yesterday was a day of trying so many new things!)
Now I know, unless you just really love veggies, veggie flavored snacks don’t really sound so appealing. Luckily, last night I was surprised to find this extra healthy post-workout treat was refreshingly tasty.
It’s no secret that I love snacks. If you follow my Instagram feed, you’ll find this fact is quite apparent.
Right now, some of my favorites snacks include, red pepper slices dipped in Trader Joe’s Greek yogurt spinach and kale dip, homemade pumpkin muffins, trail mix (like salted cashews with raisins), and air popped popcorn with coconut oil and cinnamon. Oh and for an alternative to the classic peanut butter and banana combo, I’ve recently been spreading cookie butter (also from Trader Joe’s) on my bananas. It’s superbly sweet and tastes like cake, but it’s a lot better for you. (Well the banana is at least.)
