Banana + Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
I made this discovery over the weekend, after I had just finished doing Yoga Meltdown. I was starving, but I desperately needed to shower before preparing any sort of lunch. I needed something substantial, quick, and easy. I had one banana left on the counter and was reaching for the plain peanut butter when I saw the chocolate variety. I realized that this would totally taste like a dessert.
Banana = fast energy replacement (carbohydrates) & possibly prevent muscle cramps
Peanut butter = carbohydrates & protein for restoring glycogen used during workout
Chocolate = OMFG YAY!!!
Banana + chocolate peanut butter also, of course, will make you thirsty. Sometimes I don’t drink enough water after working out, so this is a great trick for making yourself replace the water that you sweat out.
I find this post-workout nom to be win/win/win. Filling, health-tastic, encourages hydration. Also IT TASTES LIKE DESSERT. What more is needed to convince you? Winning!
