Eat like a bodybuilder on the go

Frozen-yogurt chain Pinkberry has popped up all over, but this 
great-tasting treat provides health benefits, too. It’s low in fat,
 rich in calcium, provides a small dose of protein and is full of
 live and active cultures, such as L. bulgaricus and L. acidophilus.
 These cultures promote digestive and immune health and may
 even aid fat loss. In fact, Pinkberry carries the seal of approval
 from the National Yogurt Association. Stop at Pinkberry right
 after a workout and use this low-fat, sugary food as a good post-
workout carb source along with your protein shake. Choose a medium 
cup of their original flavor along with a scoop of fresh mango and pineapple. Both are on the higher end of the glycemic index as far as fruit goes, which means they are fairly fast-digesting. Plus, they provide antioxidants that can aid muscle recovery, and the enzymes in the pineapple can help with digesting your postworkout protein.
