What to Eat This Week: Post Workout High-Protein Recipes

You work hard, so get the most out of your workout without adding a few more reps or another 10 minutes of cardio. Maximize your gains with a protein packed nom after your sweat session. Yes, a muscle pumping meal could be the answer to your recovery woes. Hallelujah!
During your workout, your body breaks down tissue so that it can rebuild bigger and stronger. Protein is key in the rebuild, so instead of using your body’s, add a little of your own from one of these delicious Cabot favorites. Put down the blender and shaker bottles, and try a protein packed meal or snack your inner foodie will jump for joy over and over (unless it is rest day, of course).
