Natural non processed post work out shake?

Commented on September 06, 2013

I was wandering if there was any good way of having a post work out shake that doesn't utilise protein powders or supplements. I have had bad experience in the past with them even when using hight quality products. I am following Wendler's 5/3/1 program and do have a full meal after every work out. However I was wandering if there was any way of having a all natural non processed shake instead due to time constraints at time.

Erm, OP: What do the words "natural" and "nonprocessed" mean to you? They are both rather vague and have been used to cover a multitude of sins.

That sounds good I had some raw eggs blended with almond butter and strawberry and one avocado it did a good job of rebooting my energy. I am also worried about restoring my pH balance after a work out.

Okay, so how about 2 steelhead trout fillets, a fistful of asparagus, and a teaspoon of hand pressed coconut oil in a blender?

First of all, what kind of workout? Second, what are you looking for in a shake? Fast calories? Highly absorbable pre-processed protein? Something that's drinkable but otherwise as close to the effects of a full meal as possible?

I've heard good things about whey if you're not intolerant (which I am.) I'd suggest ditching that whole supplemental way of thinking and instead get something from a plant or animal and not from a box with ingredients listed on the back.

It is difficult to provide suggestions without knowing some of the information AxialGentleman asked, because your post-workout recovery needs will vary greatly depending on the kind of workout (and if you do it fasted or not). The NY Times and others suggest chocolate milk. Yes, chocolate milk. The protein-carb combo and the electrolytes make quite the PWO drink. Here's the [link].1

Have you considered beef gelatin? Great Lakes makes a powdered grass-fed beef hydrolyzed gelatin (it doesn't clump or gel) that is virtually tasteless and can be added to a smoothie. It is being hailed by Weston Price advocates as a superfood protein powder, but doesn't have any sugar or tryptophan. There are also plant-based protein powders from Perfect Supplements and Sunwarrior that are either low in sugar or sweetened with stevia, but the gelatin would be my in-the-box paleo answer. It's the closest thing you can get to instant bone broth.

Having the same question as you and not seeing a good answer here. I will tell you what I have been using however I think it may be my issue with not loosing as much weight as I want. The cross-fit gym I attend daily suggests "Vega Sport" they are out of Canada. Their products are very good the pre workout is fantastic and the post workout really helps to revive me. The protein powder was to much for me at 51 and I started bulking up with fat.

If you are really lean as some others in the gym I would suggest it. If you are like me and want to drop more fat the sugars are to high.

They are at least Dairy, Gluten and Soy Free work out products.

If anyone has any ideas about a pre energy boosting and post recovery workout product that is low sugar please post.
