One of my favorite snacks after a long workout is a Banana Dog.
Ingredients include but are not limited to:
Natural peanut butter
Mix it up to your taste.
Homemade Fruit and Veggie shakes are a great way to start the day or to complete a workout. I gather my ingredients, throw them in the blender, and freeze my mix in mason jars. I pull a jar in the morning and drink it when I get to school. When I bike, trail run or swim I grab a jar on my way out the door. After my workout I have a great recovery drink.

Some of my favorite foods can be prepared the night before or even a week in advance. On Sundays I line up 5 Mason Jars, fill them with plain Greek yogurt, mixed berries and top each with homemade granola. I also use Mason Jars for salads and soups.
I also like to make fruit shakes or smoothies in advance. I blend up a large batch, portion the mix in Mason jars the freeze.
I love the fruit shakes after my workouts. I'm a morning person so I'm usually at the gym by 5am. The smoothie is ready to drink as I drive from the gym to school. For more Mason Jar ideas visit my Pinterest page.
