After Workout Snack Ideas: Skewers

Posted by | February 12, 2014 | Fit Food | No Comments

After a workout, it’s great to have a tasty satisfying snack. I mean, it’s great to have a tasty snack before too, but let’s not get distracted.

Easy after workout snack ideas: skewers. For some reason, impaling your food on a sharpened stick makes it extra tasty. Makes it look fancy too. I mean, I could toss my cheese cubes and grape tomatoes into a container to roll around, and it would taste just as good, but somehow it wouldn’t be the same. So: tiny bit of prep to cut things into bite size pieces; tiny bit of violence to jam a stick through the middle, and voila! all fancied up.

Idea #1a: the aforementioned Cheese Cubes and Grape Tomatoes. Easy. Gets you something soft with something that explodes in your mouth. Some cheesy goodness and a nice burst of tomato juiciness. Who doesn’t like that?

Idea #1b: Cantaloupe with Ham Slices. This is a traditional Italian pairing (well, probably prosciutto if I’m completely honest, but I’m not really feeling “prosciutto”-fancy today). The sweet juiciness of the cantaloupe goes surprisingly well with the saltiness of the ham. Bit of protein, bit of sweetness. Yes, please!

Store your skewers in a bento lunch box and you’re good to go.

Bonus benefit: after your snack is done you can use the skewer to pick your teeth, or (even better) to poke your children.

I'm married to Janine and constantly amazed at her energy and enthusiasm, not only as it relates to her running! This year I've started to run again (after a long hiatus) as I pursue a personal goal to get "Fit by Forty". I'm a web designer by day and I'm the guy who makes this site work, and the guy to blame when it isn't working. I'm especially excited that Janine and I have been able to combine our interests (running and web design) for this site!
