How to switch up your post-workout snacking

You’ve worked up a sweat and feeling a little wiped out, and now it’s all too easy to reach for something that’ll deliver an instant but not-so-healthy sugar/carb rush

Before you undo all that amazing work, read the LK guide to smart snack-switching. Don’t fret, you won’t have to forgo great taste and refreshment.

You fancy a DONUT... reach for a Grenade Carb Killa instead
Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? But you can be healthy and still get a sugar rush courtesy of these delicious bars. We totally love the Birthday Cake flavour – high in protein (20g), low in sugar and a great source of fibre. £2.49 and available to buy here.

You fancy a BACON BUTTY... reach for Kings Jerky or Biltong instead
Created by sportspeople for sporty sorts, Kings BBQ Jerky and Rib Eye Biltong are tender, meaty, tasty and crafted from 100% British and Irish beef. Not only are they low in sugar, saturated fat and calories, but they pack a mighty protein punch – the juicy jerky has 20g per pack and the moreish biltong at least 40g.

And if you’re a veggie, we’d recommend the black bean-flavoured Kings Veggie Jerky, containing less than 0.8g saturated fat and over 20g of protein. All packs cost £1.50 each. Click here to shop Kings 

Available to buy from Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Co-op, Ocado, Amazon and Costco 

You fancy a FIZZY SPORTS DRINK... reach for HIGH5 Zero instead
For ultimate rehydration and to zap fatigue, without heaps of sugar and additives, LK rates High5 Zero – a refreshing, sugar and calorie-free drink containing key electrolytes, sodium and magnesium. Simply pop the tablet in water and quench that post-exercise thirst. We love this High5 Hydration Pack with 10 berry-flavoured tablets and a cool 750ml water bottle. Buy here for just £4.19.

You fancy a BAG OF CRISPS... reach for Smart Protein Chips instead
LK itself finds it incredibly difficult to resist a bag of crisps, but they’re not the fulfiller of your much-needed, post-workout nutritional needs. Switch up to Body & Fit’s Smart Protein Chips instead. They come in seven sensational flavours, such as Hot Sweet Chili and Sour Cream and Onion, and they’re each high in protein and fibre. At just 95kcal per bag, they’re available to buy here for just 69p per bag or 12 bags for £9.59.

ENJOY the big snack switch!
