20 Instructors Share Their Post-Soul Recovery Meals
What's the first meal you eat after tapping it back at SoulCycle? 20 instructors reveal their essential recovery foods…
Chinese Chicken Salad. It's light, it's healthy, I get my protein — it supports the workout without being too heavy and it's tasty!
Post workout snack is a honey crisp apple, almonds and cheese. I'm also eating a lot of Lara bars lately. And the Harvest Fruit cup from Starbucks or their fruit and nut snack mix.
I usually have a protein shake after class because it helps replace lost fluids, carbohydrates and proteins and speeds up recovery time so that I'm ready for the next workout!
Smoothie! Sometimes after a day of a double or triple, I'll grab a grilled cheese with tomato and avocado on 7 grain! #foodthatfuels
My favorite thing to eat post class usually a Lara Bar/Quest bar immediately after class. It gives the body something to burn right away and then followed usually chicken rice and veggies to really refuel :).
My favorite thing immediately post class is a protein shake, bar or cookie- consumed within 30 minutes of finishing class.
I love a chocolate protein shake or a Kind Bar.
Three eggs over medium and avocado! Mostly because it's delicious, but it helps to refuel without weighing me down post class.
Boiled egg! Super random but it's quick and a GREAT protein boost.
Anything that can be paired with avocado (that can range from eggs or toast to chicken or sandwiches or even a margarita… if it has been one of those days).
My favorite thing to eat after my weekend morning class is sunny side up eggs with slices of avocado and tomatoes. It refuels me.
A packet of peanut butter!
I love an acai bowl.
A Mexican salad with a vegan burger on top from Grill Mark just down the street from SoulCycle Roslyn!
Egg white omelet with sliced tomato and avocado!
S'mores Quest Bar.
I'm a huge fan of the Kale Avocado salad from Juice Generation. You flood your body with nutrients but don't even realize because the kale-avocado-oilve oil combo is so creamy and the raisins and sunflower seeds add just enough sweetness and crunch. So delicious!
I find it's best to have some carbs and protein after a SoulCycle class. So if I'm on the go (which is always), I usually have a protein shake. I use SunWarrior protein mixed with homemade almond milk. If I have more time, I'll have a salad with quinoa, spinach, butternut squash and the meat replacer Seitan, which is packed with protein.
Think Thin High Protein Bar in Brownie Crunch — It's yummy without any sugar, perfect to recharge after class and tide me over until mealtime.
