Whey protein shakes are often taken post-workout because of whey's fast absorption rate. They are also low-fat or fat free, and low in carbohydrates. Many flavors are available, such as chocolate, vanilla, banana, and cookies and cream, just to name a few.

Why eat SWEET POTATOES?
Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamins A and C, manganese, fiber, and copper. They fight free radicals and reduce inflammation.
Although the terms sweet potatoes and yams are often used to refer to the same food, true yams are usually white-fleshed and long and cylindrical. They also have a rougher skin than sweet potatoes.
Sweet potato casseroles, pies, and baked goods always taste good, but I prefer sweet potatoes boiled or cooked in the microwave, skin in tact. How do you like to eat them?

Why eat SPINACH?
Because as Popeye said, “I’m strong to the finish cause I eat my spinach.” If that’s not a good enough reason, spinach is rich in Vitamins A, C, and K, and high in fiber, calcium, folate, iron, magnesium, beta carotene, and flavonoids. It is also low in calories and is fat free. Spinach fights cancer and macular degeneration, improves bone health and cardiovascular health, reduces inflammation, and slows age-related cognitive decline.
Spinach can be added to casseroles or pasta dishes including lasagna, served with pine nuts as a side dish, or steamed with olive oil. What is your favorite way to eat spinach?

Why eat SALMON?
Salmon is a powerhouse of nutrients. It is rich in Vitamins B3, B12, and D, tryptophan, selenium, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids. It is also high in protein. Salmon helps reduce inflammation, improve many facets of cardiovascular health, and protect against strokes. Studies have shown that it helps against age-related cognitive decline and elevates mood.
Salmon can be grilled and served with asparagus and brown rice, or in a spinach or dark-leaf salad with sliced almonds and onions.
