It is an established fact that running drains us off energy. A good run in the morning is good for the health but proper nutrition is required thereafter to keep you going throughout the day. It sure does burn many calories but also leaves us tired. There is no surety as to what should be eaten post a morning run. We are here to help. Here’s the list of some energizing foods that should be taken after a morning run for that boost of energy to last the entire day.
- Banana : Before, during, or after exercise. They’re great anytime! They are a good source of vitamin B6 and are vital for managing protein metabolism.
- Fruit salad : apples, oranges, blackberries, kiwis are excellent sources of antioxidants and vitamins.
- Almonds : Almonds are wonderful sources of the antioxidants. But don’t just take them alone for a breakfast. Just toss some almonds into oatmeal or milkshakes and you’re good to go.
- Cereals with milk : Most cereals are vitamin- and mineral-fortified, and they’re great with fresh fruit sliced on top. Absolutely great post a run!
- Oatmeal : It is an excellent dish for runners. It contains protein, fiber, & carbohydrates in excess.
- Greek yoghurt : It has proteins and should be eaten with fruits and some almonds for extra taste and boost of energy
- Milk shakes : With plenty of protein, carbohydrates, and B vitamins it is perfect after a morning run and the calcium in milk also helps keep our bones strong.
- Cottage cheese : it is a brilliant food for muscle rebuilding and repair. Runners need this for muscle recovery.
- Smoothies : they are complete package of nutrients. With all the necessary nutrients, they are #1 when it comes to post running food. Plus, what can be better than a flavourful smoothie of your choice in the morning!
- Vegetable salad : vegetables are nature’s package of nutrients for us. Veggies like broccoli, beans, mushrooms, carrot when mixed in a salad are the best food for runners after a morning session.
A good run for you and a good food for your body- blessing in disguise. So what are you waiting for? Use this info and make a daily chart of your own. Include these in your diet post a run and see how the fatigue goes away like magic.
