10 Best Post-Gym Meals That Won't Betray Your Workout

The last thing you want to hear after crushing 600 calories in 30-minutes of kettlebell class is the annoying reminder "you can't out-train your fork" or my personal least-favorite "abs are made in the kitchen."

You work hard, you need fuel to keep strong and healthy, and no doubt you deserve a good meal.  Now, you can go hog-wild and still put on muscle, but most of us want to get stronger and leaner, too, and can find it challenging to have the patience to go home after a workout and prep vegetables when you're ravenous.

To that end, we polled Seattle Kettlebell Club members for their favorite post-workout restaurant dishes that pack in protein, flavor, nutrients and satisfaction without sabotaging their efforts.
