We have a HUGE 2017 Row'd Royalty Crew. We are isn 13th place!. Who's joining us tonight at 5:50pm for Friday Night Lights?
It's Foodie Friday! We all know that nutrition is the foundation of our health and fitness program. One of the biggest holes I see in most folks's nutrition program is the lack of adequate post-workout (PWO) nutrition.
We MUST be eating something within 15-40 minutes after a workout. This is not a meal, but a special bonus meal in addition to your regular breakfast, lunch and dinner. The post-workout meal (or snack if you want to think of it that way) is a necessary source of calories and nutrients that will aid in your recovery.
The ideal PWO meal should be an easily digestible protein (whey protein shakes, Fuel for Fire, or hard boiled eggs work well) plus some carbohydrates. These two macronutrients help your muscles recover and set you up to perform better at your next workout. Carbohydrates can be included in your whey protein or you can eat real food. Sweet potatoes are a great source of PWO carbs. Here is one of our favorite recipes for a delicious and easy eating PWO sweet potato chew.
Post-Workout Sweet Potato Chews
Post workout nutrition is an essential part of workout recovery. No matter how you do it, scaled or prescribed, CrossFit is HARD! Your performance at your next workout is directly related to how you recover from the one you just finished. In addition to hydration and mobility, you need to replace the carbohydrates you just used to fuel your workout. There are many options for post-workout carb refueling and one of my favorites is sweet potatoes. Here's an easy and delicious recipe from the folks at Whole 9. Enjoy!
