Post Workout Fuel

March 19, 2012
By:  Maria

Sometimes, a snack does not need a long explanation.
Your body needs fuel after a tough workout.
Give your body fuel that will be used efficiently.
1/2 roasted Acorn Squash (I’ve used all varieties of squash – they all work. Favorites: Delicata, Butternut)
1 tblsp Almond Butter
1 tsp Cinnamon
1-2 tsp Flax Meal (I’ve used flax seeds also!)
2 tblsp Homemade Yogurt (have I posted this recipe yet?! mmmm)
1/2 tsp Pure Maple Syrup or Raw Honey (totally optional: roasted squash is sweet enough on its own!)
Here’s where it gets difficult (yea…sarcasm):
Mix together squash and almond butter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and flax, drop a dollop of homemade yogurt.
Drizzle with maple syrup/honey (if using).
*You can also add a tablespoon or two of unsweetened applesauce or 1/2 banana mashed for different flavors.
