When is the Best Time to Have Your Protein Shake? #QoW

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

When is the Best Time To Have Your Protein Shake?

This week's QoW comes from Instagrammer mrs.anna.c who asked when should you have your protein shake - is it better post or pre-workout, or can you have it any time?

Protein helps build and repair muscle, so having a shake right after your workout will help feed those muscles you've strained during exercise. Mixing your protein powder with water is the quickest way to get it into your system (around 20 minutes), but you can create whatever you like best using coconut water, almond milk or any other mixer you enjoy.

Really, there are no rules - its what works best for you. If you know you're going to get hungry in the afternoon, add some protein to a fruit or veg based shake to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
