"I like sweet potatoes as a post-workout snack because they are packed with vitamins and nutrients, including vitamins B6, C, D, iron, magnesium, and potassium," says Andrew Leonard, a certified trainer and expert for inerTRAIN, an online personal training service.
"A medium sweet potato is just about 100 calories, with 0g fat, 24g carbs, 4g fiber, and 2g protein. The carbs are great for replenishing your glycogen stores (stored carbs) after an intense bout of exercise," Leonard says. To make this post-workout snack complete, eat your potato with a good source of lean protein like a piece of grilled chicken.
