3 Easy Post-Workout Breakfasts

When you think of a post workout meal or snack, people often think about including plenty of protein to help with muscle recovery. Now protein IS super important, but what else is also very important is the need to reduce inflammation in your body after your workout. 

Exercise (especially endurance training) naturally produces free radical formation due to an increase in metabolism and also an increase in our oxygen uptake. These free radicals can cause inflammation, oxidative stress and cellular damage. 

This is the number 1 reason why it is important to have a meal high in anti-inflammatory foods after your workout and not just protein powder and water. For these 3 post-workout breakfast recipes I used Matakana Superfoods Recovery Formula to provide a boost in anti-inflammatory compounds. Their recovery formula is a highly concentrated form of fruit and vegetables which provides our body with those important antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to fight free-radical damage.

It is a delicious mix of organic pomegranate, organic red raspberry, blackcurrant, organic beetroot and goji berry concentrate which also tastes AMAZING mixed with coconut yoghurt....I have been having this for dessert almost every night lately! 😋
