Week 2 of #NationalNutritionMonth means we're giving you a post-workout meal to help you meet your goals!
Registered dietician @eatoutloseweight recommends chicken tenders!
These pretzels are a great option for post-workout muscle building after your @strongbyzumba class! It has carbohydrates + sodium from the pretzels and protein from the chicken. This combination reduces cortisol, the hormone that breaks down muscle. The sodium is beneficial, especially if you are a heavy sweater, to help with muscle cramps post-exercise!
