10k Thursday today with my running crew. I probably see these people every day now! We are all gearing up for marathons at the same time so I have a feeling we will all be the best of friends by the time the summer is over. Fun fun. We had to take a shoe pic as usual.
Um yeah, and 79 degrees this morning? That almost never happens around this time in Texas. So you know I had to take full advantage of it.
So today I thought we’d quickly talk about some quick post run meals you can put together after an invigorating workout! I know sometimes it’s hard to come up with things to make but these for me have saved me from going to the fast food joint and/or RUNger. As most of you know, that post run hunger is very real.
–Smoothies. I have a personal travel sized blender that really comes in handy. I usually love to include protein, fruits and almond or cashew milk in my concoctions. Here are a few smoothie ideas to try. My favorite is the runner’s pina colada (rum not included).
–Egg muffins. I hear these are absolutely awesome and quick especially if you can get a bunch of ‘em ready. And honestly my personal go to after a run is always eggs because it packs a serious amount of protein. Perfection.
–Avocado toast. Yet another nutritional favorite for me would have to be avocado. It’s so awesome on toast too with a little lemon or lime juice and sea salt.
–Acai bowls. I am simply obsessed with these especially in the summer time. Again it’s basically a smoothie in a bowl but I love to top it with shredded coconut, different types of fruits, and maybe some chia seeds. They are just kind of pretty too, you know? Kind of like artwork.
What’s your favorite breakfast to eat after a run?
