Post Workout Snacks

Mary Helen's approach to nutrition has always been to listen to your body and fuel it with healthy, whole foods that make you feel good. When you focus on how you feel instead of how you look, and think about eating healthy food as taking care of your body rather than punishing it, you will be happier and see better results. Deprivation and punishment often lead to cravings and overeating and sometimes even resentment. After a tough workout your body needs healthy nutrients (protein, fiber, healthy fats, and good carbs - yes, carbs!) to keep your blood sugar stable until your next meal and keep your metabolism burning.

Mary Helen and our fabulous team of trainers all know the importance of fueling your body before and after your workouts, and have a number of go-to meals and snacks to keep them going throughout long days of training and dancing. Since we get so many questions about diet and nutrition, we've collected some of their favorites to share with and inspire you!
