We have the drinking water issue covered in this post here, but what do you like to eat after a long sauna party? I have experienced folks who dive enthusiastically into a candy bar (very American) and Finn’s traditionally break bread and slice up salty makkara sausage, but for me, I’ve refined my after sauna food to:
- Pretzels – little sodium replenishment and no oily fats.
- Cheese – dairy protein jives much better at night than meat protein.
- Fruit – natural vitamins and fiber via Granny Smith apples or any fresh fruit.
These three foods work well together, without any red dye #5 or poly-splenda-msg-benzoate.
I sleep great after this light snack… Any other suggestions?
