Nutritional Foods

Exercise is an important part of your daily routine, but you might not be eating the right foods to let your body get the most out of working out. Incorporating these 20 nutritious foods into your diet can help your body build muscle, and have the energy it needs for an intense, efficient workout session.


  • Salmon
  • Turkey
  • Steak
  • Bison
  • Chicken
  • Halibut
  • Tuna
  • Clams

Meats contain protein, which is essential for building muscle mass and supplying the energy needed for an efficient workout. Seafood is low in fat and high in protein and is a very healthy option for a quick protein burst. Turkey and chicken are lean in fat but high in proteins, and can contribute to strong muscle growth.

Red meats, when eaten in moderation, can provide a lot of protein as well as fats that provide the energy needed for a vigorous workout session. Bison is even leaner than steak, and it tastes great in chili and stews.
