Post Workout Foods

*From Holly Rigsby of FYM

These are Whole Food meal ideas that are best right after a workout - meals OTHER than smoothies (see "Drinks" for ideas - liquid meals are ideal after a workout due to rapid absorption and the fact that many of our stomachs just cannot handle eating a meal right after working out.)

If you are going to eat a whole food meal...Think Fast Digesting: Proteins and Carbs

Chocolate Skim Milk(If you choose soy, you will need to add a whey protein or casein to make up for the fact that it is an incomplete protein)
Yogurt and Fruit
Cottage cheese and Fruit

Higher GI Fruits
Fruit Juice
Honey - high grade

Avoid eating high fat foods during the post workout period for it may slow the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates and proteins.
