Have you ever wondered what to eat after a workout? Well, today’s your lucky day. 

Welcome to the weekly trainer roundup. Today a handful of our trainers are sharing their personal favorite post-workout snacks.

After a morning workout, I love having “proats,” aka protein oats. Cook your oatmeal first, and then add in protein powder and water or milk/nut milk. Add some berries, nut butter, or chia seeds for extra nutrients and flavor!

After an AM workout, you can't go wrong with a protein shake or protein oats.

Do you like cookies? I do too. Try this protein cookie dough recipe out. Mix vanilla protein powder, 1 tablespoon of pasteurized egg whites, and mini choc chips (let your heart guide you). Enjoy right off a spoon, on a chocolate rice cake, or a graham cracker.

My favorite snacks are Perfect Bars (peanut butter, to be specific) and protein shakes.

After a workout, I go for a protein shake with a banana or apple. For an extra creamy shake, use frozen bananas.

I can’t get enough of Prevail Beef Jerky made from grass-fed beef. It’s great for people with allergies because it’s free of soy, gluten, dairy, wheat, egg, peanuts, fish, and tree nuts!

A banana and a peanut butter sandwich in the morning always hits the spot. If I’ve been on a long-distance run, chocolate milk all the way!

I like Boost High Protein drinks and Quest Protein chips for easy on-the-go post-workout snacks.

After a workout, I drink a protein shake (double chocolate always). Sometimes I’ll have a little banana with peanut butter to go with it.

Gotta have my protein shake!! My favorite combo is spinach, frozen berries, sometimes a frozen banana, skim/almond milk, protein powder, chia seeds, and a piece of dark chocolate.

My ideal post workout snacks include a piece of fruit with nuts, trail mix, nut butter, or milk (with or without protein powder).

Whole grain toast with peanut butter is a great post workout snack. My personal fav bread is Dave’s Killer Bread.
