I love working out. It’s part of my daily routine and I feel so out of it if I don’t exercise. Fueling the body after a workout is a MUST! Your body just used a whole lot of energy and depleted stores of vital nutrients. Sometimes if you workout hard, it can leave you feeling exhausted and sometimes even a little shakey or nauseous. We don’t want that or at least I don’t! This is why I want to share 15 easy post workout snacks with you so that you can properly fuel yourself after working out.
15 Easy Post Workout Snack Ideas
1. Trail Mix
The great thing about trail mix? You get to choose what’s in it if you’re making it yourself. Whip up a big batch and divide it up into mini snack bags for the whole week.
I love Lära bars! They are made with real and simple ingredients which makes them the perfect post-workout snack. Now they make these crunchy bars that are grain free and made with sprouted chia seeds. So if you want an easy toss in your gym bag, no prep required type of snack, grab these on your next post-gym Target run. And big win, they’re on sale July 16th-July22 with no coupon required. Lärabar 5-pack bars, the minis, Fruit and Green bars, and Bites are all $4.99!! Target is one of my favorite place to stock up on snacks and to save money at the same time. 🙂
These protein cookies are perfect for an on-the-go snack and packed with a whole lot of yumminess! Get your protein, carbs, and some fiber with this bite size snack. I mean who doesn’t like cookies right?
4. Turkey with Apple & Cheese Slices
Skip the bread and opt in for this lighter option. Grab a cheese wedge and place it over two or three slices of lean deli turkey, then roll up for a quick, high-protein, eat-on-the-go snack. Add a sliced apple for some energy-boosting carbs.
If you’re not into chocolate or peanut butter in your protein shakes, this is the pick for you. The flavor is amazing, and the banana, pineapple, and mango pack plenty of nutrients.
6. Sliced Apple with Almond Butter
This post-workout snack is packed with nutrients and protein. I always try to aim for high-protein snacks and almond butter is a great way to get it. Pack your apple slices and almond butter in your gym bag for an easy post-workout snack.
Avocado toast! The combinations are endless. I like mine on GF toast with a spicy avocado spread and topped with an egg over-hard. It’s the perfect combo of protein, carbs, and healthy fat.
8. Hard-Boiled Eggs with Baby Carrots and Almonds
It’s no secret that I love eggs. I love this idea because it’s simple and straightforward. If you don’t have time to whip up a snack yourself, combine hard-boiled eggs for protein with a veggie and nuts for healthy fat.
9. Cherry Bliss Smoothie
Summertime is here and it’s the perfect time for a cooling cherry smoothie. This one is packed with antioxidants, protein, and ingredients that will fuel your body post-workout.
10. Greek Yogurt with Berries
This is one of my go-to snacks. You can pre-make a few and then pop them in the fridge for a grab-and-go snack on busy days.
I love simple recipes and this smoothie bowl is just that! This is protein packed snack/breakfast that will boost metabolism and fill you up.
12. Peanut Butter & Banana on Gluten-Free Toast
This snack is easy, simple, and super tasty. Combine sliced bananas and peanut butter on GF Toast and there you have it—carbs, protein, and fat all in one snack.
13. Egg & Ham Rollups
Another egg snack to fuel your body! These are so simple to make and are loaded with protein and healthy fats. Cook a egg scrambled and fill with whatever your heart desires! I like mine with turkey and avocado. 🙂
14. Chia Seed Pudding
Chia seed pudding is perfect for on the go snacking. You can meal prep these for the week and keep them close by for a nutritious snack. This one is packed with protein, omega-3s, and fiber.
A combination of carbs, protein, and healthy fat that you can’t resist. A combination of avocado, mango, and pineapple give the perfect flavor. The Green Island Smoothie is also packed with nutrient-dense fruits and veggies and 20g of plant protein.
How about that for some snaking? Always opt in for nutritious options that are easy for you and your lifestyle. Smoothies and Lärabars are my go-to for a quick post-workout snack.
