Hyvee Dietitian Expert Tip
On days when you're not able to get a 30-minute workout, try 10-minute power walks throughout the day instead. And remember to stay hydrated with water or low-sugar beverages.

Toast with Ricotta & Berries

The key to a healthy post-workout or post-run snack is a combination of carbohydrates and protein. Both whole-grain bread and ricotta cheese contain protein and carbs. 

Chocolate Milk

It's not only affordable and delicious, it also just so happens to have an ideal ratio of carbohydrates to protein.

Banana & Peanut Butter

It's a favorite combination, and not just because it's good. Bananas are loaded with easy-to-digest carbs and B6 vitamins, which help manage protein metabolism. 

Apples, Cheese & Nuts

Slices of apples provide energy replenishment while cheese offers protein and calcium. And the nuts aren't just for flavor, they're full of healthy fats. Opt for walnuts if you want a small dose of omega-3s.

Greek Yogurt, Granola & Berries

Protein is the fuel that drives an athlete. With twice as much protein as regular yogurt, Greek yogurt is an easy choice. A 6-ounce container of Greek yogurt provides up to 17 grams of protein.
