Best Meals for Muscle Recovery
As soon as we are finished with a vigorous workout, getting ourselves rehydrated is important, with food likely being the first thing on our minds, and rightly so. Exercise can create stress on your muscles, and it also uses an abundance of energy, therefore the first thing your body looks for is a source of nutrition to re-fuel.
After a workout, however, we are challenged with the option of what exactly to eat. The options that we have available are almost overwhelming, and for some, it can be quite confusing to select what the best source of nutrition may be to tend to their newly-strained muscles.
Here are Kurami’s top three meal choices to consume post-workout:
Meal 1: Chickpea Tofu
This signature Kurami dish is a wholesome take on the classic plant based protein source, tofu, served alongside polenta, rice and vegetables. Overall, this is low in saturated fat whilst providing a source of fibre and protein, making it nutritiously delicious, balanced, and satiating.
Our Chickpea Tofu also comes with our signature ratatouille, arriving to your boxes this spring. Why not order yours today?
Meal 2: Fish
We serve fish and seafood twice a week in our meal paths, with an oily option every Fish Friday. Fish provides the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids that contribute to heart health. They are a source of protein, and most of us should eat more of it.
Meal 3: Banana Nice Cream
Freezing overripe bananas is a great way to make ice-cream, and an excellent way to prevent the wastage of this delicious fruit. This meal serves as a quick source of carbohydrate, including minerals such as potassium too!
Release any stress that you may have around your post-workout meal! Instead, focus on the nutritional value by choosing foods that are rich in complex carbohydrates as well as protein to refuel your body correctly, whilst encouraging muscle growth and sufficient recovery.
At Kurami, we deliver delicious, nutritionist-approved, and chef-crafted meals to your doorstep.
