There is no doubt in it that for maintaining a muscular body, diet plays the main role. You put a lot of effort into your workouts, and always looking to perform better and reach your goals.

Consuming the right diet after you exercise is just as important as what you eat before. Studies suggest that consuming the right amount of carbohydrates and protein is especially important after a workout.

Here are some of the smart food choices, that if taken after work out, will surely boost health and immunity.

Brown rice and boneless skinless chicken breast:

Prepare with your favorite low-sodium spices for a nutritious recovery meal.

Some athletes prefer white rice over brown to reduce possible stomach upset from the higher fiber intake.

Egg scramble:

Easy one-skillet meals where one whole egg, egg whites, vegetables, and sweet potatoes can be tossed with favorite spices and sprinkled with fresh black pepper.

Power smoothie:

Blend your favorite fruit with plain yogurt, or favorite tolerated dairy, some water, and ice.

A great boost of healthy fats can be added with a spoonful of your favorite nut butter.

Peanut butter:

The all-American favorite sandwich on whole-grain sprouted toast is a post-workout pleaser.

Leave off the sugared jam and enjoy with a drizzle of local honey.

This nutrient-dense meal contains quality plant protein, healthy fat, and high fiber.


Whole grain high fiber wraps are a great start to a wonderful recovery meal.

Add some fresh avocado, lean meat of your choice, greens, beans, or whatever suits the theme of the wrap, roll up, and enjoy.
