Refueling your body after a successful workout is extremely important in order to rebuild, recover, and stimulate muscle growth. In order for your body to revitalize itself, regain energy, and build muscle mass, you need to eat something packed with healthy protein, and complex carbohydrates. So what should you grab after your next work out to hydrate and fuel up? Yup, Superfood Soup! How do you think triathlete star, and #SOUPSQUAD member, Meredith Kessler, stays so fit?!
All of our soups are packed with loads of vitamins and minerals, and the best type of carbohydrates for post-workout nourishment. The reason plant-based carbs are so important after a workout is because your body turns starch from whole vegetables into glucose, which directly replenishes muscle glycogen. This is also why snacking on fruit isn't as effective for post-workout refueling. Opt for starchy veggies such as squash, beets, carrots, peas, pumpkin and more instead!
Our soups are full of both starchy and non-starchy veggies for a boost of healthy carbs, making them a super convenient way to refuel — especially while on-the-go (like most of us during the summer). Plus, since we pack all the fiber in, our soups will help keep you satisfied and energized throughout the day! Looking for a protein boost? Try one of our newest flavors, Kale Avocado with Collagen, packed with 10g of protein from grass fed collagen peptides. Collagen is one vital protein in the body that shapes and strengthens tissues — including skin, nails, muscles, bones, the heart, tendons, and your brain. Drinking a Kale Avocado with Collagen Superfood Soup will help you build muscle mass after the gym, while simultaneously improving your body’s overall health.
So next time you need a quick snack after the gym, grab a ZÜPA Superfood Soup, and feel the immediate benefits!
