Zespri SunGold kiwifruit
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.
