I just killed my WOD.
It happens after a not-so-great Wednesday.
I had emotional energy to burn.
It took 18 minutes to put out the flames.
274 reps. Done and done. #WODkiller
Post-WOD recovery fuel?
Cereal! I know, I know. You might imagine as the Nutrition Nut, that I eat square meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Well, I’ve got news for you. This girl eats cereal for dinner… often. I like to think I listen to my body well, and well… I CRAVE cereal after evening workouts.
Seen above: GF Rice Chex, GF Love Grown Foods granola (oh hey, GIVEAWAY!), 1/2 banana, unsweetened almond milk, and a small spoonful of almond butter… because I eat the stuff like it’s going extinct.
I will add that in order to “approve” of my continual cereal craving, I’ll eat some savory protein-rich food beforehand (i.e. tuna or eggs). It’s all about balance ;)
And then I’ll dive into some form of dark chocolate, such as this bag of nutty bites I polished off tonight. #addicted

What do you crave after running or lifting? Does it differ?
Do you fuel immediately after your workout?
