Post- workout Snacks – At your hands reach, honestly!

It can get a bit tricky when it comes to choosing the best post workout meal for you, especially with so much misleading info. I can’t believe that I ran onto a blog post the day before, that recommends having a chocolate milk, bread, cheese and crackers or a pizza, right after your workout. I got really mad and decided that once and for all I will write that list of post workout foods and help you all understand what your sore muscles actually need after the physical activity.
