Why we love it:
- The protein and carbs in milk help repair muscles and replenish cells' energy stores after a workout. Eat dairy within 45 minutes of exercising, when the recovery process is at its peak.
- Pineapple contains bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory compound, which may reduce post-workout pain.
