16 Healthy Post-Workout Snacks

A lot of times (ok most of the time) I come home after a hard workout and am STARVING. I almost always eat the same thing after working out, but sometimes that just gets boring! I like to switch things up, but I want to make sure I'm refueling properly- getting enough protein and carbs to replenish my body.

To get out of my "eating the same thing" rut I rounded up 16 awesome post workout goodies from some of my favorite bloggers that are each healthy and packed with protein. Each of the foods featured a great (and delicious!) way to refuel after a hard workout. Plus, the foods are allergen friendly, or can be modified to be allergen friendly, and can be made ahead of time so when you're starving you can grab and go.

  1. I am TOTALLY with you! When I ran cross country for my college in order to be on time for my 8 AM class I had to choose between showering after our morning runs or eating breakfast....I chose breakfast. Always! :)

    1. Haha breakfast always wins in my books too!!

  2. Definitely coming back to these, because the post workout hunger is REAL, and finding the right snacks is not always easy.

    1. I'm always hangry when I leave the gym and food is the first thing on my mind when I come home! There's so many good recipes I don't know which one to make first :) I hope you're having a blast in Ireland!
