Best Post Workout Meals
The post workout meals you choose should be abundant in protein, and have a good amount of carbohydrates as well. Here are a couple of the best post workout meals that you are sure to enjoy.
Grilled Chicken and Vegetables - Simple!
8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp each dried oregano leaves, basil and garlic salt
2 each large yellow and green zucchini
2 large ripe but firm tomatoes
Pinches of salt and pepper
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh mint
Lightly oil grill and preheat barbecue to medium. Trim excess fat from chicken. Place in a large bowl and drizzle with oil to coat lightly. Sprinkle with seasonings and turn to coat. Set aside. Slice each zucchini in half lengthwise. Cut tomatoes in half. Brush both with remaining oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place chicken on grill. Cook for 6 minutes with lid closed. Turn chicken, and add zucchini and tomatoes to grill. Continue grilling until chicken feels springy when pressed, 8 to 10 more minutes, and until vegetables are lightly charred, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove each piece as it is done. Scatter with mint. 4 servings.

Another Good Post Workout Meal
1/2 ripe avocado, chopped
1 plum tomato, chopped
1/2 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped, or 3 slices of pickled jalapeno, finely chopped
Pinch of salt
2 tsp butter
1/2 cup grated cheese, such as Monterey Jack or cheddar (optional)
ē 1 to 2 Tbsp sour cream (optional)
Prepare avocado, tomato and jalapeno. In a bowl, whisk eggs with 1 Tbsp water and salt. Melt butter in a medium-size, non-stick pan over medium heat. Swirl to coat bottom and base of sides. Add egg mixture but donít stir. When edges are set, after about 1 minute, use a wide spatula to pull edges of eggs toward the center and tilt pan so liquid egg mixture runs underneath. Slowly repeat until eggs are set, 2 to 3 more minutes. Sprinkle avocado, tomato and jalapeno over one side. Top with cheese. Fold other side over top. Dollop sour cream on top, if desired.
