Our Best Post-Workout Recipes

cyclist eating a post-workout snack

The right post-workout snack can help to keep your body properly fueled following an intense training session. It can help to repair your muscles and restore energy levels, helping you to stay at peak performance.

Protein and carbs are the focus of most post-workout recipes due to their respective reparative and filling properties.

In the recipes below, products from the Klean Athlete range add extra filling power and nutrition to your post-workout snacks, so you can continue to fuel your foundation and perform at your peak.
