When you have completed a workout you want to replenish your depleted glycogen stores. Ideally this should be done within 30 minutes after cool down.

Your snack should be equally proportionate in protein and carbohydrate. Though this snack may seem a bit unorthodox it truly fits the job…Chocolate milk! The carbohydrate content will reboot your system and the protein will promote recovery as well as muscle gain.

I know what you may be thinking….chocolate milk after a workout and in the summer ? Contrary to your innate response there is a degree of interest, is there not? Try it out !

Suggested serving: 8 ounces of fat-free Chocolate milk
