Health Tip: Enjoy a Post-Run Snack

Suggestions to help you refuel

(HealthDay News) -- Running burns a lot of calories and energy, so it's important to refuel with a healthy snack.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics mentions these alternatives:

  • Plan to eat a mini-meal of proteins and carbohydrates after your run.
  • Drink an 8 oz. serving of low-fat chocolate milk.
  • Make your own trail mix with pretzels, cereal, soybeans and dried fruit.
  • Have a wrap or sandwich with peanut butter and jelly.
  • Snack on a protein and carbohydrate energy bar.
  • Munch on a small serving of pretzels with nuts, or pita with hummus.
