Ideal Post Workout Nutrition

Kat Barefield

It’s no secret that the Daily Ultimate Training (D.U.T) classes at UFC GYM are intense. They break your body down, so you can grow stronger, get your heart and lungs in better shape, and help you shed body fat. Intense workouts are critical to your fitness, but so is proper nutrition. If you’re constantly beating up your body without refueling and replenishing, eventually things start to break down.

Your body needs several essential nutrients to thrive, and active people need more. Adding more colorful fresh fruits and veggies is an easy way to boost your nutrient intake, and having a good source of protein will help your muscles and immune system. After a full body workout, you can replenish the fuel you burned and help your muscles recover with a protein rich meal replacement shake. Throw in some of your favorite fruits and veggies, and now you’ve got the ideal post workout meal or snack.

Ingredient List

1 scoop of dotFIT Whey Protein (25 grams of high-quality protein)

5 medium strawberries

1/4 cup of blueberries

¼ cup of raspberries

A handful of spinach (don’t worry you can’t taste it)

A cup of almond milk or milk of choice

Wash all produce thoroughly. Add all ingredients to a blender until smooth. Add ice if desired.

Make sure your workouts pay off with good nutrition using a power-packed meal replacement shake. It’s an easy way to refuel, recover and boost your nutrient intake to help you become the best you!
