Beef Steak and Spinach
Having a steak and some leafy green spinach is an excellent way to pack an iron punch into your day. Get creative with your cooking and include this for an added workout benefit. All too often women are not getting in enough iron.  Some breakfast cereals are also fortified to help with this mineral deficit.


Eggs and Spinach
Instead of frying or scrambling an egg alone, add some spinach and get that bonus nutrient here too. The whole nutritional value increases.  There are many ways to make eggs with spinach so search online for some good ones for your family.

Whey-Protein Shake
Active in fitness with weights? When you lift your body needs repair. To speed up recovery and make you stronger using a protein source with whey aides this phase. Use a scoop after your workout with milk or nut milk and combine it with fruit.

If you are vegan or vegetarian there are plant-based protein options that would benefit you.
