You Don’t Always Need a Protein Shake After Working Out

Absolutely consuming protein is important after a workout.  But don’t limit your sites to protein shakes alone.  Don’t get me wrong,  I love protein shakes but sometimes I just want to chew something.

There are lots of great protein sources you can tap in to.  Eggs and hemp heart are 2 of them.

As for the rest of the ingredients they all a have purpose beyond great taste.

Pea shoots are loaded with vitamins A & C as well as their own kick of protein.

And I always try to add a fermented food when possible.  Sourdough and apple cider vinegar are today’s fair.

Here are my sandwich ingredients recapped:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBSP Hemp Hearts
  • 2 pieces of sourdough bread
  • A handful of pea sprouts
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper
