Poor nutrition can hinder a great training session, so remember this tip before your workout. “Plan your recovery meals ahead of time. Prepare your food before you head out for that long, hard workout so that you don’t eat everything in sight when you return. Proper recovery starts with nutrition.” -Coach Liz with Zoom Performance
The Iron Hippie and I have spent some time recently stocking our freezer with homemade yummy goodness…healthy snack options, nutritious soups, curries and browned ground bison (ready to dump into a pasta sauce, put on a pizza, or mix with squash).
When we get done with a tough workout, we don’t want to have to spend time making recovery fuel…we just want to inhale it!! It is nice to have food already made, so all we have to do is heat it up and inhale. 🙂 Soups, curry, muffins and nutritious bars are just a few of the foods we made to stock our freezer with. What foods do you make to stock your freezer with so you can quickly and nutritiously refuel after a tough workout?
