Best Post-Workout Foods for AM Exercise

These eight mini-meals and snacks can help you maximize the effectiveness of your morning workout routine.
  • 1 egg
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1 small whole wheat tortilla

When it comes to post-workout protein, eggs are an excellent choice. That's because egg protein is high in biological value, which means that the protein found in eggs is ready to be utilized by the body and most efficiently used for growth.

Load up your eggs with spinach for added vitamins and nutrients and tuck this delicious scramble into a whole wheat tortilla for a post-workout meal that will make your muscles pop.
