Overwhelmed by the endless choices of recovery shakes and bars? We've sampled and rated an array of products to help make your choices a little easier.
Ease to consume: 4
Comments: With the classic 3:1 carbohydrate to protein blend this is an easy drinking lightweight recovery product. At 55g of carbohydrate per serving it's on the higher end of carb intake so perhaps best suited following endurance training. It's available in strawberry and orange varieties - we preferred the strawberry. The only complaint with this is that each serving consists of three-scoops of the blend which doesn't feel like the most economical solution to recovery. The ingredient list is also a little heavily packed with less than natural sounding substances.
....or just have some normal food - like milk, or eggs, or fish.....
My missus has started doing bananna smoothies in the mornings, which happen to coincide with my runs. Soya milk, frozen bananas, honey, ground almonds and cinamon. Not a clue if it's good or not but it tastes nice and cools me down!
Mmmmm!!!!! Can I marry your wife.
Sounds great and I would say it is good for you.
I used to have a smoothy after a run, as I found before was to much before, thats unless you take the smoothy an hour or so before.
Feedback on this would be good.
Wot Nick said.
I just have a milk shake the ones beginning with fr I can't spell when I can, anything including mcdononds when I can't get hold of them.
Even a peanut butter sandwich works as a post-run snack. No need for all this synthesized protein gunk.
Pre run - a pint of or two of water! Normaly chomp a bit of homemade granola too YUM!
post run - a yazoo chocolate milkshake and a good solid meal of 50% card 50% protein
