What you eat before, during, and after a workout is super important. Not only do you need to be fueled for peak performance during a workout, but also it’s important to eat well after one to aid in muscle/total body recovery. The general rule of thumb (unless you’re training for a half marathon currently aka me) is to consume a healthy balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Make sure you’re also including fruits and veggies! In total, a snack should be around 200 calories and come from wholes foods as opposed to process. Ambitious Kitchen provides a great guide that lists several of the most common post workout snacks.
