Protein-packed Trail Mix

post workout snacks
Heather Mangieri

Trail mix made with soy nuts makes a great post-workout fuel because it provides the ideal carbohydrate-to-protein ratio without driving up the fat content. Take a to-go container of this mix with you and enjoy it after exhausting exercise to fuel your muscles until you can get to your next meal.
