Probably one the most asked questions I get, what to eat after a workout? Depending on what kind of workout you did, strength or endurance, your body needs proteins and carbs. I almost never do cardio so in my case it’s important to focus on more protein and less carbs after my workout. The other thing that’s important is the fact that it’s very important to rebuild your muscles within the next 30 minutes after your workout for best results. Skipping your rebuild after a workout is considered as a lost workout. Your post workout is just as important as the workout itself. No rebuild, no or less results. I usually have my rebuild shake with me, it’s easy, fast and very delicious, but this time I made protein waffles with my shake instead.
Recipe for 2:
- 4 scoops rebuild strength
- 2 eggs
- 2 scoops spelt flour
- 1/2 scoop baking powder
- 120ml milk
- coconut flakes
Mix it all together in a bowl, there’s no need to mix it step by step. Just so you know, I’m very impatient so everything has to go fast when it comes to food and I need to eat within the first 30 minutes so the rush is real! I use olive oil to bake and I always try to avoid any kind of butter to bake.
Toppings I love are banana’s, almond flakes, honey, muesli, peanut butter, chia seeds and even flat cheese.
Key benefits of the rebuild strength I use:
- 24 g whey and casein proteins create a rapid and sustained protein-building state
- Tri-core protein-amino blend of free amino acids, whey and casein proteins help rebuild muscle and speed recovery
- Iron essential for red blood cell protection
- Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) support muscle growth
- L-glutamine supports immune function and promotes muscle repair
