The best post-workout snack is 100% homemade

The best thing after a good workout is taking a shower and planning your healthy snack 🙂

My latest favorite is Greek yoghurt with home made nut mix & honey. Packed with vitamins, rich in fibers, anti-oxidant fruit and calcium and totally home made (ok if you don’t count the yoghurt but I don’t think I’ll ever manage to make my own yoghurt), this is something I can’t wait to go home to.

How to make it:

Mix the following ingredients together, dribble with the best quality thyme or flower honey you can find and sit comfortably to enjoy it!

  • Oats
  • Dried fruit – I had Greek raisins, dried at home by my mum and store bought cranberries.
  • Mix of seeds – bought separately from a local organic herbs and spices store & mixed by me
  • Any kind of unbaked, unsalted dry nuts (here I have used pistachios , hazelnuts and almonds). You can use them whole or crushed.
  • Finest quality Greek honey (thyme is my favorite)
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Fresh fruit if you like

  1. Love yoghurt, honey and nuts and as you say its a great, healthy food fix after the gym! If you need to take something ‘on the go’ for after then I love my energy balls! I make them with dessicated coconut, dates and raw cashew nuts (and fresh ginger when i remember to buy it!) Soak the dates for 10 mins or so, then blitz it up in a food processor. Add a few drops of water until the mixture holds together, Roll them into balls and keep them in the fridge or freezer. They are great at staving off post-gym hunger and will keep your energy levels from flagging. Plus the protein will help your muscles mend after a tough workout too!
