The simple formula is this: Timing + What You Eat = Fast Recovery!
There is a window of opportunity post workout where your muscles are like a dry sponge – 30 to 90 minutes after you’re finished. When you eat during that window, you provide your muscles the essential nutrients to quickly recovery … allowing for another strong and effective workout next time out.
What you eat is JUST as important as when you eat … and The Optimum Recovery Ratio suggests ingesting one gram of protein for every four grams of carbohydrates.
My 3-year old daughter and I created a very tasty snack that fits closely into the optimal Recovery Ratio ... it's awesome ... and guarantees your kids will eat some extra fruit!
Kayla's Reese Delight
- Place 1 robust tbs. of crunchy peanut butter (low fat and/or organic) into a coffee cup - zap in the microwave for 35 seconds to soften
- Pour an ounce of organic low fat milk, or almond or soy milk into the melted peanut butter - stir vigorously until mixture becomes a thick liquid
- Drop in one full scoop of chocolate Beverly Muscle Provider - mix together thoroughly. You may need to add a little more milk to adjust the consistency - it should be a thick dipping sauce.
- Then dip a banana, sliced apples, grapes or strawberries into this heavenly delight ...and ENJOY!!!
