Post exercice snack attack!

June 14, 2017

Fruit smoothie

If you have been training or competing hard it's a good idea to make sure that you help your body to recover. What you eat and when can help in this recovery. Ideally you should try to eat a small snack within half an hour of finishing your hard training session or race. We've put together some of our favourite snack ideas for you.

PB (peanut butter or personal best?!)

A slice of toast bread with peanut butter and banana - you can drizzle a little honey on if you like it sweet.

 

Berry Good

If you have a blender you can make a tasty, healthy smoothie. Add together a handful of berries (fresh or frozen), a teaspoon of honey, a dollop of yoghurt, half a banana** and some ice. Blend together - then add milk (or similar) and blend until it has the consistency that you like. **Top tip: if you use a frozen banana it will make your smoothy extra creamy!

Go Bananas for Oats 

Put some oats in the fridge overnight with some milk (or similar), orange juice and a small handful of dried fruit and nuts. Slice some banana on the top. Sounds crazy, but it's super yummy!

Avo Good Day

Mash an avocado on to a slice of toast - season with a little salt and pepper. You can add  scrambled eggs to turn this into a main meal -  serve with a small salad on the side.

Nuts for Pasta

Pesto and pasta is a go-to for many athletes - your favourite pasta with a dollop of pesto and some chicken is a simple post - exercise meal that can be ready in minutes!

It’s Bean Great 

You can get lots of yummy tinned beans from the supermarket. Look for ones that don't have a lot of salt or sugar added. Mix beans with things like tomatoes, chopped cucumber and avocado. Drizzle with some olive oil and a little lemon juice. Serve on top of toast or rice cakes.
