Post-Workout Snacks Are Important!

Feeling exhausted after an intense workout? Did you know that, during exercise, muscles are broken down and depleted in effort to produce a stronger body aerobically and anaerobically. There is a small window post workout (30-45 minutes) when your body is primed to take in the most nutrition (when your metabolism is highest and looking for power to burn fat). So, whether it is a handful of almonds or a small piece of chicken, remember to enjoy a small, high protein snack right after your workout!
