Each of us have our own go to recovery food or drinks post workout. Most of us also keep experimenting with the recovery drinks.
I figured out that milk is the best recovery drink. Add chocolate to it, and it tastes best. The natural protein found in Milk, the natural fat, gives you good calorie intake, and protein for muscle building.
What I look for when I take in my recovery drink is, something that is
- Is Cold
- Has milk
- Has complete protein
- Has carbs and fats
- Has enough mineral salts and vitamins to fill up the loss
If I am home, I always make my own protein shake, using natural milk. But when I am not home, I need something handy. I have tried Core Power few times, and have really found it energizing. I have had it post bike ride, post swim with my breakfast at work, post crossfit workout as quick recovery. Its tasty, it’s fulfilling, and hits the spot right. And best is, its all lactose-free milk based.
