Post-Workout Breakfast: Eggs with Kale

For a post-workout breakfast,
your body needs certain high protein and
low carbohydrate foods,
like eggs with kale, colorful veggies and
crackers, to help your muscles recover and
refuel you.

At my event with Sweaty Betty,
I explained that it’s a very important meal
because you don’t want to “reverse” the effects of your workout
with a high caloric meal and something tough to digest.
You also want to choose healthy options
that will keep your endurance and strength up for
your next workout.

What you need to eat after you workout is specific to your own body
and bio-individuality. What you should eat post-workout is also dependent
on the type of workout your doing (a spinning class vs. a light yoga class)
and where you’re working out (in an air conditioned room vs. outside in the heat).

In general, the best post-workout meal
is high in protein and low carbohydrates.

See below for one of my favorite post-workout breakfasts:
