It’s the first day of the New Year, and you know what that means, right? It’s time to make promises to yourself. Promises you’ll keep for a month or so anyway! If you made any exercise resolutions, today is your lucky day. I have just the post work-out treat for you. It’s easy to make, delicious to eat, and fuels your body with the perfect amount of protein to follow a moderate workout. Fifteen to twenty grams of protein after a work out is just about right. So, throw a few of these in a ziplock and into your gym bag. Depending on your protein powder, each of these will provide around five grams of protein. You might find yourself getting that work-out completed even faster just to get to this delicious snack!
