So let’s think healthy snacks full of protein, for after the session, which is actually more important for the body to help repair the muscle tissues and replenish glycogen stores which are very often depleted after a strenuous workout around the pole
Some top snacks that don’t take too long to prepare
1. Tropical fruit mix – This can be bought already prepared
Blend ½ a handful of each: macadamia nuts, dried coconut, dark chocolate chips for that added treat and dried banana chips.
2. Banana milk shake
One medium sliced banana with 1 cup low fat milk – blended together
3. Peanut Butter & Banana on Rice Cakes
Try a healthy peanut butter and banana sandwich. Instead of bread, try your peanut butter on two brown rice cakes
4. Hummus and Pita bread
Another great carbohydrate and protein combination: Hummus and whole wheat pita. Hummus, a dip made from puréed chickpeas.
5. Low Fat Yogurt & Fresh or Frozen Berries
Protein makes sense after a workout, since it contains amino acids that help build muscle. Your muscles are depleted of amino acids after a workout, so you need an adequate supply of protein to help build them up.
6. Whole Wheat Pitta with Tuna
Warm the pitta in a toaster and fill with cucumber, chopped into tuna and placed in your pitta, add salad and chopped tomatoes and or chopped fresh peppers for that added crunch
7. Turkey & Cheese with Apple Slices
If you are trying to skip bread then just spread the cheese over the turkey and add sliced apples for that added crunch
8. Protein Shake mixed or blended with Banana
A protein shake made from whey protein, water, and half a banana is a great choice, since your body quickly turns it into energy.
9. Scrambled egg mixed with chopped herbs and chopped onion
10. A fresh bowl of chopped cucumber, feta cheese, tomatoes and advocado
11. Sliced Apple dipped in home made
Remember to always keep hydrated too so increase your water intake before, during (sips) and after pole.
