Post-Workout Snacks
1. Forget the protein bar, reach for whole foods
-
Try these healthy protein bar alternatives that are approximately 150 calories per snack: 2 dried plums plus 30 pistachios; half of a whole grain English muffin with 2 tablespoons hummus; 6 ounces nonfat Greek yogurt with 1/2 cup berries;  or low-fat string cheese and a piece of fruit

2. Say no to sports drinks and stick with water
or try lime-water, coconut-water 

3. Pick cereal-nut mix over trail mix 
Mix one serving of your favorite whole grain cereal, like Cheerios, Kashi Go Lean, or bran flakes, with 3 teaspoons slivered nuts or blend 1/2 cup cereal with 1 tablespoon slivered nuts and 1 tablespoon raisins.

4. Eat TWO mini-meals rather than a HUGE breakfast, or HUGE post-workout dinner
You’ll likely be ravenous when you wrap up your workout and could end up overeating at dinner.
Enjoy a snack, like egg whites and a banana, before your morning workout, and when you are done, eat a moderately-sized breakfast. Evening exercisers should eat a snack 30 to 45 minutes prior to exercising and enjoy a moderately-sized post-workout dinner.
