The meal after a workout is usually geared towards re-fueling the body after the stress put on it. High protein is a given for this particular meal, and the meal can include some carbs to replenish muscle glycogen. I used red potato in the last slide. If you're trying to lose weight, it is a good idea to lower carbs, since water loves to attach itself to carbohydrate molecules.
Your choice of vegetables can improve recovery. Antioxidants are important for reducing the amount of oxidative stress placed on the body following a workout. Vegetables high in vitamin E will improve recovery from stress. These include swiss chard, avocado, spinach or butternut squash. Vitamin A and C are also important antioxidants. Carrots and broccoli are good sources for vitamin A. Vegetables that improve blood flow and lower blood pressure, will also improve recovery. The blood can distribute oxygen to the muscles faster this way. Beets and Asparagus are usually the best vegetables for this.
It is generally not the best idea to take excessive vitamin E supplements after a workout. In the book 'Antioxidants in Sports nutrition,' Bentley et al. concluded that too many antioxidants impaired muscle growth, as the body could not create an adaptive response to the oxidative stress. Progressive overload also includes the amount of stress that the body can handle. To sum it up, some oxidative stress is good, but not in excess.
The third slide is a postworkout meal of mine with Chickpeas, Swiss chard, red potato, carrots, asparagus, olives, mushrooms and peas, with some avocado butter.
