Eating a protein-filled meal or snack after a workout can help your body build the muscle you’ve been working towards. Even if you lift weights everyday, your body won’t be able to build the muscle you want without a diet rich in proteins. This healthy snack recipe refuels your body with the nutrients it needs!

All you need to make this recipe are bananas, peanut butter, and almonds. Not only is this snack full of nutrients under 160 calories, but it also follows vegan and gluten-free dietary restrictions! You can also swap out the almonds for dark chocolate chips to satisfy your sweet tooth!

What you’ll need:

1 Banana

2 teaspoons of peanut butter (or more if you like!)

Sliced almonds

What to do:

Cut your  banana into 1 ½ -inch pieces. Spread the peanut butter over each end of the banana slices. Sprinkle sliced almonds on top. Enjoy!

When you’re working out regularly, it’s very important to give your body the nutrients it needs. The food you eat will directly effect your results!

Working out on a regular basis is also amazing for your skin, if you take care of it correctly.

Give your skin the care it needs after a workout! After exercising, remove the dirt and sweat from your skin by washing your face with a gentle cleanser. You might think that a strong exfoliator is needed to get rid of it all, but too much exfoliation after a workout can dehydrate your skin and lead to more breakouts. Remember to wash the skin on your body too!

Moisturize your face and body after cleansing to replenish the moisture. Find a moisturizer that works for your skin type to avoid over or under hydrating. Even oily skin needs to be moisturized! If you’re finishing up your workout during the day, remember to add sunscreen at the end of your routine to protect against UV rays and free-radicals.
