Post Workout Snacking Made Simple

Arin Segal

Summer is here and that means bikini season is officially upon us. I’m lucky enough to live right next to a river trail and have a gym in my apartment that overlooks part of Philadelphia and because of that, I’ve got almost no excuse not to be working out. But what do you eat after that intense cardio or weight session? Well, our friends at Nuts.com reached out with some ideas and Lisa & I wanted to share.

While what you pick depends on your specific goals, in general it is best to have a healthy mix of carbs, protein and a moderate amount of fat. Some suggestions? A green smoothie with protein powder, a piece of low GI toast (ie. Ezekiel Bread) with eggs, our protein bites or one of the options from the infographic below.

On the go? Pack a piece of fruit and protein shake! What is your favorite snack? Share with us below. Want more ideas?

Our Top Superbowl Snack Recipes

Lisa Eberly

I am not the biggest sports fan. Actually, most of the time I really don’t know what’s going on during a football game. However, I really love the Superbowl.

Did you know that more calories are consumed in the United States on the Superbowl than on any other day?

More than THANKSGIVING (which came in second place).

Superbowl is basically the biggest junk food day of the year.

Then again, that’s sort of why I love the Superbowl. A great excuse to snack...all day. Not to mention go to a fun party in jeans and tennies.

So how do you manage to stay relatively healthy during the game? We’ve compiled our favorite Nourish and other blogs’ snack recipes that would be the perfect addition to any Superbowl party.

You might even choose these over chips.

From Nourish:

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts (perfect with little toothpicks for Superbowl!)

 

From our favorite blogs:

Raw Brownie Squares


If you make one of these, be sure to tag us so we can share your delicious creation!

Oatmeal Raisin Protein Energy Bites

Lisa Eberly

Protein is KEY for lasting energy throughout the day. Zooming from a 6 am wake up call to a meeting to work to a yoga class to making dinner to more work takes a lot of protein. But, I can’t exactly chow down on a chicken breast and let’s be real, almonds and Greek yogurt can get old real fast.

These little bites are SO FRIGGIN’ CUTE and super delicious. I made a big batch for my company’s all hands meeting and let’s just say...people were not mad about it. Everyone was munching on them the whole time and someone even snatched the last 2 off my desk afterward! They were a huge hit.

Being that they are bite sized, take 10 minutes to make, and keep well, they are the ultimate snack to bring to any healthy event or to work. I mean, they’re basically healthy oatmeal raisin cookies packed with a protein-punch.

One thing I’m going to be a stickler about when ya’ll make these is the protein powder. I can’t stand protein powder. It smells and tastes so artificial and leaves a creepy feeling on my tongue that I can’t get on board with. So, I only use one specific brand of protein powder because it’s made from real foods and has literally zero gross smell or aftertaste, Aloha protein. They are my protein goddesses over there.

Oatmeal Raisin Protein Energy Bites
(makes 15 bites)
10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill Honey Almond Granola)
  • 1 packet (~½ cup) vanilla Aloha protein powder
  • 1 tbs flax seeds
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbs raw honey
  • ½ cup natural almond butter
  • ½ cup raisins (or chocolate chips if you’re feelin’ saucy!)
  • 4 tbs milk or milk substitute (almond milk, hemp milk, etc)

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients and stir. (I recommend adding the milk last!). Combine with a spoon or hands until it rolls into a big sticky mound. If it seems too dry, add in more milk.
  2. Roll little balls from the mixture.
  3. Place in fridge to store, but for best results, let them sit for 30 minutes in the fridge before devouring all of them...I mean sharing them with all your friends!
