Feed the Burn

If 2019 is the year you’re taking your exercise routine to the next level, consider coming to our new Fueling for Fitness class at Henry Mayo Community Education. Taught by one of our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, this class is meant to bridge the nutrition gap for those aiming for optimal food for their fitness. To replenish your carbohydrate, or energy, stores and help heal and build muscle after an hour long intense cardiovascular and strength training workout, the right combination of carbohydrates and protein foods is needed. Learn how you can improve your pre- and post-workout at our 90 minute seminar. Until then, try out these post-workout snacks to help feed your burn!

Try one of these within 30-45 minutes after completing your next workout:

  • 1 whole wheat English muffin with 1 tablespoon of nut butter
  • 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt drizzled with 1 tablespoon of honey
  • ½ a whole wheat pita with 2 tablespoons of hummus
  • 1 medium apple and a string cheese
