Still hungry in the evening?…try this snack…

If you are genuinely still hungry after an active day then this is a good option for an evening snack. Now is not the time for heavy carbs, starch or fat laden treats. Instead choose a snack made up of high quality protein.
protein rich foods supply ready amino acids for repair of muscle during sleep- rest is when muscle repair occurs.
Foods with casein, a primary protein in dairy products are a good choice as the provide a slow release of amino acids into the blood stream which prevents muscle breakdown overnight.
