Best Post-Workout Foods for AM Exercise

These eight mini-meals and snacks can help you maximize the effectiveness of your morning workout routine.
  • 6 oz. plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ a banana
  • ice
  • 2 tbsp. PB2


Greek yogurt will give your muscles the protein fix they need—it contains double the protein of regular yogurt and is much lower in sugar (so it won’t give you an unnecessary sugar spike and crash later in the morning). PB2 offers additional protein in a powder form, which many experts say combines with liquids to kick-start muscle synthesis faster than food alone. Throw in a ½ banana for a healthy complex carbohydrate.
