Active Cookbook: 9 Portable Protein Snacks for Endurance Athletes

Protein is vital for post-workout recovery—it helps repair damaged muscles and tissues. Choose omega-3-rich protein sources, and you'll also help quell the inflammation that can build up in tendons, joints and tissues after a hard session. While protein powders and energy bars seem like the easiest choice to nosh on after your workout, there are several more wholesome protein picks that are just as quick and easy to throw in your gym bag before rushing out of the house in the morning.

This month's Active Cookbook combines the protein-packed favorites of four registered dieticians with other portable picks to ensure you get a healthy protein fix with little fuss.
