Quick and Easy 2-Minute Post-Workout Meal

When it comes to quick and easy post-workout meals, this is my second most favorite recipe. A while ago I wrote about my favorite quick post-workout meal and now I will show you even simpler and easier recipe.

The ingredients are cheap, can be found in any local store, are rich with healthy nutrients and since the preparation is only slicing and mixing, it will take up only 2 minutes of your time. I am sure that you will find this recipe useful not only as a post-workout meal but also as a healthy meal that you can prepare every time you are in a rush.
