After working out, it’s ideal to fuel up on at least eight grams of protein to help your muscles recover more quickly. Walnuts are a terrific topper because they’re the only nut packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s can help tame inflammation and ease the aches and pains we often experience following a tough workout.
