After a run you need to replenish energy as quickly as possible. Red Gold has a great recovery soup that is quick and easy to prepare. This soup will help decrease recovery time and muscle weakness by proving carbohydrates, electrolytes, sodium and protein.
A good rule of thumb for post-run food is a ratio of 1 gram of protein to 3 grams of carbs. Besides our Red Gold Recovery Soup a nutrition bar, a bagel with peanut butter or a smoothie with fruit and yogurt are healthy options. If you prefer to drink something chocolate milk is a great choice. Chocolate milk provides plenty of protein, carbohydrates and be vitamins – making it a great recovery drink.
