What’s a good non sugar item to eat after an intense workout? I would usually do a glass of chocolate milk after running but I am starving after playin an hour and a half of basketball!
  • kmkelman I like the peanut butter rx bar. Or but butter in a banana. Handful of almonds
  • annefood Anything with good carbs and protein that sounds tasty to you. Nuts and fruit per @kmkelman is a great suggestion if you want something light. Or plain yogurt with fresh fruit- you could turn that...

  • elievois Good to know! Thanks for posting!
