The simple snack post training that Carlos Ríos recommends for a good recovery

Surely you also get the same question every time you leave the gym: What can I eat after training? It is clear that our priority is that it is something healthy, but it is also important to look at how this post-ground snack can help us recover. After physical wear, our muscles need to repair the proteins and recover the energy they have invested.

And for this it is essential to take into account the nutrients of what we are going to take. To make it a little easier, Carlos Ríos, creator of the Realfooding movement, has given us an idea that we have already pointed out in our recipe list. Is about a delicious and easy to prepare snack made with only three ingredients: dates, yogurt and oatmeal.

The yogurt that the nutritionist has used, which only carries skim milk and lactic ferments. "It provides a good amount of high quality protein," he explains. He has also added 30 grams of oatmeal and four dates, which constitute "a mixture of slow and fast carbohydrates."

As you know, the ultraprocessed have no place in this recipe (or in our lives when we decide to bet on healthy eating), that's why it's important that you know how to choose the ingredients well. Notice that the oatmeal flakes are integral so that you can take advantage of their fiber. When choosing dates, always bet on those that come in branch or Medjool types, since the important thing is that they are natural and that they do not come covered with the layer of sugar that includes the majority.

And finally, that yogurt is made with skim milk also makes it an interesting option. As Carlos Ríos explains: “The absence of fat from skimmers makes the assimilation of carbohydrates and proteins faster after training, since fat delays digestion.

A realfooder post-ground snack idea that demonstrates, once again, that we don't always have to pull supplements like bars or protein shakes. Sometimes betting on natural ingredients can be healthier and cheaper.
