Eating after you exercise is a fantastic way to promote muscle growth and weight loss. It is also a great way to help your body recover from intense exercise! Eating unhealthy foods during your recovery may be detrimental to your fitness progress, too. In this blog, we’re going to share some healthy post-workout meals that you can easily make yourself. They’re good for your health, don’t contain any processed sugars, and are packed with the proper nutrition you need to grow muscle. These meals can also be turned into snacks! 

Four Plant-Based Post Workout Dishes

Smashed Legumes With Avo

One of the most healthy, delicious, and easy-to-make dishes we’ve ever seen. This dish only requires:

– One Avo

– 400g of cooked legumes (chickpeas, lentils, beans etc)

– Miso or another salt substitute of your choice

– One tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

– (optional but recommended) One tablespoon of tahini

– Fresh ginger

Simply add all to a bowl and smash until your desired consistency! It’s best smashed to a spreadable consistency!

We love this dish for its taste above all, but what’s worth mentioning is its versatility. Slap this mixture on 100% rye toast or pair it up with the grain of your choice!
