Healthy Meal- POST Workout

Recipe provided by Molly Linek

As a registered dietitian, I know just how important fueling your body is post-workout. Replenishing your muscle and liver glycogen stores is not only crucial in proper exercise recovery, choosing the proper ingredients plays a huge factor as well. I like to opt for a combination of quality protein, green & fiber, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats… for all my meals, really.


Base of mixed greens

4-oz organic ground turkey (or lean protein of choice)

3 stems broccolini

1 small sweet potato, sliced into ¼-inch thick pieces

½ small avocado

1 persian cucumber

1-2 tbsp hemp seeds

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ lemon

2 tbsp pumpkin seeds

½ red bell pepper


Brown turkey and season to your liking (I love Primal Palate taco seasoning). In a separate skillet, sauté sliced sweet potato and broccolini in 1-2 tbsp olive or avocado oil, sea salt and ground pepper, until tender, about 10 minutes. Add cooked turkey, sweet potato and broccolini to bowl of mixed greens along with sliced bell pepper, avocado and cucumber. Top with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and a large sprinkle of hemp seeds for added fiber and healthy fats.
