  • Zespri SunGold kiwifruit
  • Vitamin C
  • Nutrient rich

So, you've figured out WHAT exercise to do. But have you also figured out how to maximise the value of that exercise through food? What we eat post-workout can help fuel us throughout the day and keep our energy levels topped up. Of course, there's always the option of the pre-packaged granola bar - but who wants to be boring? In this post we've got 5 inspiring ideas that will have you running faster than ever just to get back and get stuck-in to your well-earned snack.

1. Cool down with a kiwifruit ice lolly

If you’ve been for a long run or hit the weights in a hot, sticky training session, there is nothing better than a frozen snack. Just add apple juice or fizzy water to some pureed kiwifruit, pour into a mould and voila!

2. Make a kiwifruit sandwich

No bread required - just a few slices of kiwifruit and some peanut butter in between. Easy, delicious and energising!

3. Stretch with kiwifruit

Yes, you heard right - with a kiwifruit in each hand, why not go through some gentle exercises at the end of your exercise routine. That way, you won’t have far to go to find a tasty and nutritious snack when you’re done ;)

4. Shower with kiwifruit

These days, there are lots of delicious body washes and shampoos made with kiwifruit. So why not track down some kiwi-scented products for after your workout? Not only will you smell good, but you’ll be craving a couple of SunGold™ by the end!

5. Whizz up a kiwifruit smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to get a replenishing mega-dose of vitamins and minerals. For that reason, they are the perfect thing to eat after exercising. We love combining Zespri™ SunGold™ kiwifruit with yoghurt, seeds and mangoes for a refreshing and tasty post-workout treat.
