Feeling that post-workout hunger pang? Here are some seriously simple ideas to fill you up, replenish your energy and help your muscles repair after a tough session.

Protein smoothie

Carbs, protein and healthy fats – this easy peasy smoothie has it all.

• Frozen banana
• 1 tbsp of your favourite nut butter
• Scoop of your choice of protein
• A scoop of oats
• A few dates
• Milk of your choice (around 250ml)

Chuck it all in a blender and blitz!

Greek yoghurt and fruit

High in protein and low in fat – this mix is super satisfying and helps fight sweet cravings too!

• 0% fat Greek yoghurt
• Banana
• Berries of your choice (frozen raspberries are delicious here)

Simply pop a few spoonfuls of yoghurt into a bowl and top with your favourite fruit.

Whole grain toast with peanut butter and banana

Oh-so easy and just as tasty, snacking doesn’t get much more effortless than this.

• A slice or two of whole grain bread
• 1 tbsp of peanut butter
• 1 sliced banana

Just pop your bread in the toaster and add your topping. Simple!

Pitta bread and hummus

Ok so, this one probably doesn’t need explaining, just dip and eat, but why not try jazzing it up a bit with a squeeze of lemon juice, a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and some toasted chickpeas on top for extra crunch.
