Have a cookie – your next workout depends on it. To feel fully recovered from one workout to the next, you know protein powder – and its mighty branched chain amino acids – is an essential component. But you don’t always have to sip it. You can bite, chew and treat yourself to a post-exercise cookie that provides more than any other dessert. This batch is founded on a plant-based protein that offers body-loving nutrients, like glutamine, tart cherry, turmeric and even probiotics. By savoring a moment of chocolate and mocha now, you’ll be ready for whatever lies ahead.
