Working out first thing in the morning is the best way to burn a lot of calories. However, I am usually hungry after a long workout. I mean really starving. Since I have spent all that time working off those calories, I don’t want to eat junk food to just pile those calories back on. Choosing healthy options can be tough.

Refueling After a Workout

High protein breakfast cookies

I like to enjoy a cookie or two after a hard workout, since I am usually starving. These cookies are super filling and packed with protein to help you refuel after a workout. You can  make a batch to last all week or really go bananas and double the batch to have enough to share. You can order Premier Protein Bananas and cream on their site. My husband loved how smooth this protein shake is to drink and all the kids enjoyed trying it too.

How do you add protein to your day?
