your post work-out snack should always have a good balance of protein and carbohydrates - the amino acids need to be restored as do your glycogen stores.<br><br><br><br>
smoothies, homemade bars, fruit with protein (apple and nut butter, perhaps) are good choices.
bag of nuts and or seeds should do the trick.<br><br>
good combination of carbs, proteins, and EFA's<br><br>
plus easy to put in your gym bag <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
After cardio I will usually eat a banana, but sometimes I will have natural trail mix with nuts, seeds, and dried fruit,(without the sugar). And as I love sweets, I will put some low calorie sweetener in it.
Ooh good suggestions. I've been trying to think of ideas of what to eat for my post-run snack. I'd heard bananas were good but I hate them! I think I'll try nuts and seeds for now and maybe one day get myself a decent smoothie maker.

I use a blender I bought at Walmart.
i'll cook up a pot of mr. noodles and toss frozen veggies into the bot with them while they boil. drain the water out and then put seasoning in. and fry yves breakfast sausage links cut into chunks, add them to the noodles.<br><br>
you get a highcalorie, high carb, high protein meal meal that's really easy to throw together when you've got post-gym jello-arms <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">
I live about 35 minutes from the gym, so I have to make do with foods that don't have to be refridgerated. I throw together trail mix with dried fruit, nuts, and maybe some crackers. I also sometimes stop at a convenience store and get an apple. There are other times where I go to Subway and get a six-inch veggie sub. The snack depend on how much time and money I have on that particular day.
I run before breakfast everyday, so I usually just wait 30 mins and then eat a meal. Typically either sprouted grain toast with a nut butter and a piece of fruit, or a bowl of cereal with apple, raisins, nuts, and soymilk. I try to get starch, protein, and fat in there for sure.<br><br>
I'm never hungry after a workout, so I'd imagine that if I weren't working out pre-breakfast, I'd do a smoothie.
I lift weights, so I like a good blend of carbs and protein, and I get a nice mix from a hempseed powder and orange juice shaker. The hempseed, of course, supplies a lot of other goodies as well like a healthy dose of omega-3 and 6 in an ideal ratio.
I have gym class first thing in the morning and swiming always makes me very hungry and I don't have lunch until 12:15 so I always have almonds or soy yogurt afterwards.<br><br>
I experimented for a while, but fruit leathers made me hyper, and most fruits just left me eating half of my lunch class because I was so hungry.
