A morning workout is a great way to start your day but can have you feeling sluggish if you don’t replenish the energy your body used. Thankfully 3Natives has a menu full of healthy post-workout breakfast options.
At 3Natives, we pride ourselves on using all-natural ingredients all the time. Each location offers online ordering so you can enjoy 3Natives on the run as well as delivery through 3rd party apps.
What Breakfast Should I Eat After a Workout?
After completing your workout, your body needs you to replace the energy you used during your workout. Eating a healthy breakfast after can help you stay energized and feel full during your day. However, it can be hard to find healthy breakfast options – especially when you’re on the go.
When choosing a good post-workout breakfast, try to eat something that’s packed with macronutrients. Macronutrients include protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Protein helps your body build and repair muscles after a workout. Foods high in protein include eggs, Greek yogurt, dairy milk, and various nuts/seeds. The basic recommendation is to have 10 to 20 grams of protein after your workout.
Your body uses carbohydrates to power itself through your workout routine. Carbs serve as an important energy source for your muscles. Since carbs play such an important role in your energy, you need to replenish the carbs you lose in your workout.
Carbohydrate rich foods include oats, bananas, oranges, blueberries, and mangos.
During your workout, your body also uses fats for energy.
These fats are important to regain after your workout, even if you’re trying to lose weight. Contrary to popular belief, there are good fats your body needs to maintain itself. These healthy fats are found in a variety of foods, such as avocados, cheese, and egg yolks.
