If you tend to be ravenous after a gym session or long run (who isn’t?), it’s wise to have post-workout snacks on hand that can kickstart the recovery process and curb hunger.
Here are a few high-protein, low-sugar, post-workout pick-me-ups we love. (Just make sure you keep them in the fridge.)
Six Star Clean Protein Shake
Six Star Clean Protein Shake is lactose free and delivers 32 grams of protein and 24 vitamins and minerals. It’s available in two flavors, in both a 64-ounce multiserve and a convenient four-pack.
Icelandic Provisions Krímí Skyr
This creamy yogurt, available in July, has 11 grams of protein and a wealth of probiotics, which promote a healthy gut—important for recovery. Stir in ground flax seeds or nuts for added fiber.
These cubes get their seven grams of protein per serving from peanut butter, milk, rice protein, and whole egg powder, all of which is bound together with honey. They go great with an apple or banana. Post-workout snacks don’t get much better than this.
