You’ve had a good gym workout and now you need to refuel your body. Whether you’re ravenous or feeling a bit full and woozy from a heavy sweat session, it’s really important that we feed our bodies. If your goal is to burn fat, you don’t have to overdo it and eat more calories than what you’ve burned in the gym. Getting a good combination of protein, complex carbs and a little fat is the perfect way to refuel your body after exercise.
These tasty snacks will hit the spot.
Slap it on a cracker and you’ve got yourself a yummy high protein, low calorie snack.
