Post workout recipes for muscle growth and recovery
We love to exercise and keep fit. But we know very little about the muscle strains and injuries we incur along the way.
Ever done some weight lifting and felt the aches on you muscle for some days. That’s proof that your workout is effective and that your muscles have undergone some physical strain. The phenomenon has to be remedied with protein rich foods.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it provides you with the energy levels you need for your endeavors. As such it is paramount that you execute your breakfast in the most effective and efficient way while including high levels of protein.
Eggs are considered as a muscle friendly food. You can have them scrambled, make an egg roll, whip up an omelet, sunny side up or if you’re macho, you can drink them raw in a glass. Eggs contain omega 3s, protein and amino acids crucial for building lean muscle mass. Eggs will speed up your muscle recovery and equip you with the energy you need for the day. You can include a toast of brown bread with it and a glass of warm milk.
Remember, you are on a diet specifically to build and recover your muscles. It does not mean that when you’re done with breakfast it stops there. It continues through to lunch and dinner. Beef provides you with a substantial amount of protein. You can have about 8 Oz of ground beef, two cups of pasta and a quarter cup of broccoli.
Beef contains Creatine, all amino acids, all Vitamin Bs and is dense in iron for energy production. Pasta contains carbs for energy production while the broccoli yields components that will control your fat level.
Who does not like chicken? Chicken stands out as the best deal sealer for the day end. It may be complimented with yam, some peas, corn and carrots. One serving of chicken is 8 Oz, 1 yam and a cup of carrot, corn and peas mix.
The combination of lean protein and carbohydrates will increase the level of insulin in the blood. This fosters a hormonal environment that is ideal for muscle development.
