What to Eat after a Workout

Hello my happy friends! You don’t have to be a morning person to appreciate the benefits of a healthy start. You often ask what to eat after a workout? What should I be doing after a sweat session? What kind of workout should I be doing to achieve that flat stomach? Well, coming soon I have something to help you every day… More on that later.

The benefits of keeping active are plain to see, and just as important, arguably more, is eating that colorful nourishment. So what if we had a great understanding of how to do both? Wouldn’t that be awesome?! Enter today’s blog post!

I want to make it easy for you to know what to eat and how to workout… all before your morning meetings. Just so you can get to work feeling super happy and full of energy, oh and so that your metabolism is already kicking butt and doing its thing.

Firstly I would like to say the following fun routine is super realistic… both in time, cost and skill set, both in the exercise aspect and the kitchen… So if you believe you have a barrier to the below, please email me, tweet me, hit me up on Instagram as I would really like to help you out specifically 😉

The first thing is the time… it only takes 20 minutes! The workout is 10 (and yes it is intense) taking into account getting everything out of the fridge, cooking time and cleaning/soaking I have allowed 10 minutes for that too… On top of that I have added in tricks for you to do the night/day before when cooking your previous meal.

Please let me know if this is honestly unrealistic… otherwise here is how you can fit only 20 minutes extra into your day to benefit those weight loss goals. You also make your delicious breakfast… talk about serious wins 😉

Day before:

Ok, my friends! This is where time management can become your ultimate friend. The day before, or even a couple of days before when you are cooking, just kill two birds with one stone and add 2 cups of water with 1 cup of quinoa to a small saucepan, cover on high heat, bring to the boil, turn to low and cook for 10-15 minutes or until they open up. Allow to cool and then you have quinoa ready to go whenever you need it and it is 2-3 serves. (You can also substitute for brown rice)

The other alternative is to create my Blueberry Chia Pudding… serious high 5 action right here

Time to cook:

All you need to do now is get out

1 Tbs Olive oil,

2-3 Eggs

Pinch of Salt & Pepper

1 tsp Chili flakes (optional)

1/2 Cup Quinoa, cooked

1/4 Avocado

Method:

  1. In a small frypan on medium heat… add your oil and crack in your eggs.
  2. Using a spatula or a fork, whisk to break eggs before stirring ever 8-10 seconds or until cooked. Finish with your a pinch of salt, pepper and the optional chili flakes
  3. Serve with quinoa and chili flakes

So not only do you get your workout in.. the breakfasts is sorted, time for a shower and off to work! Again let me know if this is unrealistic… as I have done it a few times, yes, lab tested it myself, but am always thinking of you amazing people.

Happy mornings my friends!!!
