The Best Vegan Post-Workout Snacks
Post workout snacks should be a mix of carbohydrates and protein, and here is a list of good post workout snacks which also happen to be vegan.
Banana and Cinnamon Rice Cakes:
Using 3 Rice Cakes, cover them with 1 tbsp each of crunchy peanut butter (no added sugar or salt), 1 chopped banana and a sprinkling of ground cinnamon.
Soya Bear Snack
The reason I call this a bear snack is because it’s made using fruits and nuts. Mix together 4 tbsp of Soya Yoghurt, with 1 tbsp of dried fruit (cranberries, goji berries and currants are my favourite) and 1 tbsp of hazelnuts and there you go.
Get 2 slices of really seeded, brown bread (I like Vogel’s and Burgen the best) and toast. Scoop out the flesh of half an avocado and sprinkle over a little lemon juice. Spread the avocado on the toast and sandwich together.
Baked Sweet Potato with Baked Beans
Baked beans are a source of protein and the sweet potato is a good carbohydrate which is slow-releasing. Prick your
sweet potato with a fork and place in the microwave on a high heat for 5-6 mins until soft in the middle. Warm up the can of baked beans over the hob until cooked through and serve.
I love porridge made with soya milk and this is delicious. In a pan, place 1/2 cup of oats with 1 cup of soya milk and continue to stir until thick. Serve with mixed berries and a banana for extra potassium.
Hummus and Spinach Sandwich
On a granary roll, spread 2 tbsp chilli hummus and place a handful of spinach on top. Add a couple of slices of cucumber for extra bite.
Apple with Peanut Butter
Hands down, this is the best snack in the world. Cut 1 apple into wedges and cover with peanut butter (no added salt or sugar).
Soya Chocolate Milk
Alpro Soya does the world’s best vegan chocolate soya milk. You seriously have to try it! Enjoy your milkshake with some cranberries and some extra dark chocolate.
