- 3 oz. deli turkey
- 1 oz. low-fat cheese
- ½ cup pineapple chunks
Turkey and low-fat cheese roll-ups provide necessary post-workout protein with an added bonus for muscles: Calcium. This essential mineral may be best known for its role in building and maintaining healthy bones, but it also contributes to muscular functioning and circulation which may help improve overall athletic performance.
Pineapple not only has energy-boosting carbs, but also contains bromelin, a natural anti-inflammatory compound, which may reduce post-workout pain.
