Best Post-Workout Foods for AM Exercise

These eight mini-meals and snacks can help you maximize the effectiveness of your morning workout routine.

On the go post-workout? 1 oz. of Turkey Jerky provides 15 grams of muscle rebuilding protein. The amino acids in protein are necessary to rebuild muscle tissue post-workout. Why Jerky over a quick protein bar? Jerky gives you the protein you need without the added sugars and fat found in many protein bars. Combine tasty jerky with an orange loaded in potassium to replace electrolytes lost during exercise and fuel your next workout.
