Need a simple collagen snack or healthy carbs post-workout in under 4 minutes? Try this hummus collagen. It combines high fiber carbs with a hefty dose of protein from the cottage cheese and lots of preparative amino acids from the multi-collagen. It's Hum(mus)-Diggity delicious!

Hummus post-workout for healthy carbs?

Why not? 🙂

  • Hummus = good (healthy carbs)
  • Hummus + Collagen = SUPER good (healthy carbs + amino acid protein)

I’m still learning about all things ‘workout recovery’. I’ve heard you want to eat carbs right after a workout in order to help your muscles recover more quickly. And, in the past I’ve thought that meant a bowl of pasta or a doughnut. But, I’m learning if I care about how I look and feel, the amount and quality of the carbs matters!

The great news is there are lots of ‘better-for-me-carbs’ perfect for fueling and offering my body muscle building nutrition without triggering a sugar monster.

The Paleo Mama has a GREAT article on the importance of in-taking high-fiber-nutrient-dense carbs primarily from veggies:

‘In short, fiber (especially antioxidant rich vegetable fiber) is critical for supporting gut health, promoting normal bowel movements, creating a healthy and diverse gut microbiome, protecting against many gut pathologies, regulating blood sugar, reducing inflammation, reducing the risk of certain cancers, and potentially even reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes. It’s definitely not a nutrient we want to skimp on!Paleo Mom

When eating for workout recovery, it’s important to remember that not all workouts require the same nutrition.

Many don’t require a super-heavy carb reload. For instance, my leisurely 3 mile walk that took me an hour to complete doesn’t require a 3/4 lb sweet potato to fuel my body back up.

But, a 20 min HITT training, 45 min Zumba, 60 min Crossfit (like with our friends at CrossFit Orlando), Orange Theory, Eat the Frog, or other intense workout — will likely require some additional slow-burning-carb fuel.
