These 20 Post-Workout Meals Will Hit the Spot Every Time

If you’re working for your dream body, then you already know how post-workout nutrition helps.

Namely, eating a high-protein and high-carb meal after a workout can boost recovery and muscle growth by raising insulin levels and stimulating protein synthesis.

Sure, you could whip up a protein shake after a workout but that’s not nearly as satisfying as as diving into a big pile of food.

So, if you’re not in the habit of eating after you train, let these hearty and delicious recipes serve as your inspiration. Same goes for if you’re sick of drinking that shake every day.

Whether you opt for the Citrus Avocado Salmon Salad or the Steak & Sweet Potato Hash, you’ll appease your appetite while doing your body good.

Enjoy!

Barbecue Chicken Flatbread

Don’t order a pizza or reach for the cardboard box once you get home from the gym.

It’s easy to make a protein-packed pizza at home in under a half hour when you use flatbread as the crust, and with barbecue chicken on top, you’ll wind up with equal amounts of carbs and protein.

For the salsa, you can use ready-made if that’s easier. If you feel like dicing an onion and opening up a couple cans, it’ll come together quickly, and you’ll have a cup of leftover black bean and corn salsa to enjoy as a snack or topping for another meal.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Barbecue Flatbread:

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast

4 light flatbreads

1 cup low-sugar barbecue sauce

1 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar

2 cups black bean and corn salsa

Salsa:

1 can (15 oz.) reduced-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed

1 can (15 oz.) corn, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup diced red onion

2 Tbsp. lime juice

1 tsp. chili powder

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

Cheesy Buffalo Chicken French Bread

Buffalo Chicken post workout meal Picture courtesy of The Creative Bite

Instead of stopping by a restaurant on the way home from the gym – or relying on whatever convenience food is in your freezer – grab a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store.

From there, you have countless options for turning it into a quick dinner, whether you just chow down with a side of quinoa and roasted vegetables, or use the meat as protein for another meal.

This quick Buffalo chicken pizza requires little prep work, just shredding the chicken and chopping some celery, so you can be wolfing one down in less than 20 minutes.

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 cups shredded chicken breast

1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce

1 1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat Italian cheese blend

1/2 French baguette

1/3 cup green onions, chopped

1/3 cup celery, thinly sliced

Shrimp Po Boy Fries

French fries don’t seem like a healthy post-workout snack. They’re said to be empty calories because of the potato starch and of course the grease factor.

Add protein on top, though, and those French fries gain a lot better nutrition, especially if you use sweet potatoes for a Paleo-style post-workout treat.

No matter what kind of potatoes you choose, they can be roasted in the oven with just enough olive oil to make them crispy. And the shrimp can be made in the oven too, if you prefer, at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes, flipping halfway.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Fries:

2 lbs. potatoes

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Salt

Shrimp:

1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 cup tapioca starch

1 Tbsp. coconut flour

1 large egg

1/4 cup sparkling water

1 tsp. paprika

1/4 tsp. salt

Pinch of cayenne

Coconut oil, for frying

Remoulade:

1/2 cup avocado mayonnaise

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

1 tsp. prepared horseradish

1 tsp. fresh parsley, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 Tbsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. dill pickle juice

Edamame Mac & Cheese

This high-protein recipe for mac and cheese is a healthy meal, and it’s almost as easy to make as the processed stuff in the blue box.

Aside from cooking the pasta – and throwing in cauliflower, peas, and edamame in the last couple minutes – all you have to do is whisk together a cheese sauce.

You’ll need two cups of cheese, and you can go with all cheddar or mix together two kinds like fontina and gruyere.

Serves 6

Ingredients

8 oz. whole-wheat macaroni

1/2 head (about 2 cups) chopped cauliflower florets

1 cup peas, thawed if frozen

1 cup shelled edamame, thawed if frozen

2 3/4 cups low-fat milk, divided

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. granulated garlic

1/4 tsp. ground white pepper

2 cups (about 8 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar

Beef and Mushroom Stew

Beef Stew post workout meal Picture courtesy of McCormick

Not only is this beef stew easy to make, but it can be ready ahead of time – in the fridge or the freezer – so you’ll have a homemade post-workout meal anytime.

This one has beef, although any kind of meat stew will be an awesome source of protein. And mushrooms are great to have after hitting the gym because they’re loaded with vitamins and minerals, which will be easily absorbed when your metabolism has been boosted by exercise.

Serves 6

Ingredients

1 medium onion, chopped

2 cups baby carrots

16 oz. baby Portobello mushrooms, sliced

1 can (15 oz.) no-salt-added diced tomatoes with juice

1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium beef broth

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Quinoa Fried Rice

If you pick up fried rice from somewhere like Panda Express, it’s not going to do you many favors as a post-workout bite. Let’s face it: The best part is the egg.

Using brown rice instead is a great way to increase the nutrition, but since you’ll need more time to make it, quinoa is an awesome alternative. For more protein, simply add some tofu or ground chicken to the stir fry.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 cup dry quinoa

1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken stock (or water)

1/4 small onion, chopped

2 carrots, peeled and chopped

3 scallions, chopped and divided

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. minced fresh ginger

Healthy BBQ Shepherd’s Pie

For a post-workout meal, you’ll need a lot of protein, plus a mix of quick-to-digest and complex carbs. That makes a classic casserole like shepherd’s pie perfect.

Any kind of ground meat can go in the filling, including lean turkey or chicken. Then make a vegetable mash to go on top, whether that’s mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, or cauliflower.

Shepherd’s pie is also great for sneaking in other nutritious ingredients like peas and beans, both excellent sources of plant-based protein.

Serves 5

Ingredients

Topping:

3 medium sweet potatoes

1/4 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Filling:

1 1/2 lbs. extra-lean ground turkey

Citrus Avocado Salmon Salad

Even though you don’t necessarily need to fill up on fats after a workout, a combo of salmon and avocado is still great nutrition to reach for.

The salmon has protein plus omega-3 fatty acids, which acts as an anti-inflammatory to support muscle recovery. Then, avocado has monounsaturated fats that help with post-workout muscle growth and joint health.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Salmon:

2 salmon fillets (about 6 oz. each)

1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salad:

4 cups baby spinach

1 large pink grapefruit, peeled and sectioned

2 medium oranges, peeled and sectioned

1 avocado, thinly sliced

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/4 cup green onions, sliced

Steak & Sweet Potato Hash

Sometimes it’s nice to just go back to basics. A choice cut of steak – like sirloin or flank steak – with a sweet potato on the side is a comforting post-workout meal.

It’s also packed with all the protein, vitamins, and just enough fat to fuel your body for recovery. This is a quick dinner whether you have leftover steak to use up, or prefer to pan-sear one and finish in the oven with the French fries.

Serves 1

Ingredients

2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup chopped yellow onion

1 serving frozen sweet potato fries

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1/4 cup (about 1 oz.) shredded mozzarella

Sweet Potato & Berries Breakfast Bowl

Sweet Potato post workout meal Picture courtesy of Nourish Everyday

Sweet potatoes aren’t just for a side dish. With berries and seeds, this is an awesome breakfast to replace oatmeal or cereal.

And it’s great for a post-workout snack too, especially when you mix protein powder into the yogurt on top. The macros on this are high in complex carbs because of the sweet potato, but you can also split one potato between both servings for a lighter meal.

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 sweet potatoes (about 1/2 lb. each)

2/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

1/2 scoop WHEY+ vanilla protein isolate (optional)

1/4 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin, flax, sunflower, or chia)

Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie

Healthy Peanut Butter post workout meal Picture courtesy of Best of This Life

Rather than reaching for the usual PB&J sandwich, upgrade it to a smoothie with whole fruit.

All the sweetness you need is in the grapes, berries, and bananas. And unlike a sandwich, post-workout smoothies are an easy way to enjoy a serving of whey protein powder.

This one has similar nutrition to a glass of post-workout chocolate milk, and you have the option to go fat-free by using PB2 instead of natural peanut butter.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Grape Smoothie:

1 1/2 cups mixed berries, frozen

1 cup purple grapes, frozen

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Peanut Butter Smoothie:

Veggie & Egg White Sandwich

Eggs on their own can contain great post-workout nutrition, but they’re even better when upgraded. This sandwich combines whole grains, eggs, and your favorite veggies.

The slice of cheese isn’t necessary if you would rather add pesto or hot sauce for flavor. You could also mix a crumbly cheese like feta into the eggs before making it in the microwave or, if you don’t mind waiting, baking it in the oven.

Serves 1

Sausage Kale Strata

There are a lot of great ways to enjoy eggs as a meal – omelettes, frittatas, and the ubiquitous Benedict – but the all-American strata has all the makings of a hearty dinner: eggs, meat, bread, and fresh produce.

Essentially a cross between bread pudding and casserole, it’s indulgent but can be made healthfully – or nutrition enough, at any rate. Choose a lean sausage, load the dish with mushrooms and kale, and use either half-and-half or milk.

Serves 12

Ingredients

12 large eggs

2 1/2 cups half and half

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

4 Tbsp. minced fresh herbs (oregano, parsley, or basil)

1 loaf crusty French or Italian bread, cubed

2 lbs. lean pork breakfast sausage patties

1 bunch kale, torn into pieces

Olive oil, for frying

Apple Carrot Beet Ginger Juice

Even if you don’t have a fancy juicer, you can enjoy a refreshing glass without overpaying at the store. Blend up the whole fruit and vegetables that you want to use, and then a mesh strainer can remove the pulp before pouring the juice into a glass.

Juice is a great way to load up on nutrients that support any kind of fitness plan. An ingredient like beets, for example, can enhance muscle power if you drink it pre-workout, and it helps the cardiovascular system by lowering blood pressure post-workout.

Serves 1

1 beet, rinsed, lightly peeled, and quartered

Everyone with a serious sweet tooth should check out Andrea’s Protein Cakery for nutritious recipes like this.

Tuna Salad, Hummus & Honey Mustard Lettuce Cups

Tuna Salad post workout meal Picture courtesy of Lean It Up

Open a can of tuna, and you’re on your way to having an awesome post-workout snack. You can just eat it out of the can with a squeeze of lemon juice and pinch of salt, but that gets old fast once you’re out of a dorm room.

Luckily you don’t have to do much more to turn tuna into a grown-up grub that’s loaded with protein and flavor.

Mix in hummus and honey mustard, and grab some big lettuce leaves to serve. Or, make it a substantial post-workout meal by spreading the tuna salad between whole-wheat bread instead.

Serves 1

Grilled Chicken Pita

When you need a quick meal, nothing beats a good sandwich. With grilled chicken and Greek yogurt in a whole-wheat pita, this has almost as much protein as carbs and less than 20 grams of fat.

And since putting this together takes only a few minutes more than stopping by a restaurant to order a pita sandwich, you may as well make it from scratch. If you don’t want to prepare tzatziki too, serve with plain yogurt and hummus.

Serves 6

Chicken Pita:

3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Every ingredient in every supplement we offer is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research, and every dose is included at clinically effective levels.

That means everything in our products is based on published scientific studies demonstrating real benefits, not the restrictions of razor-thin production budgets and gluttonous profit margins.

So, while everyone claims to have the best supplements on the market, we can back it up with real science and real numbers.
