2. Have a light snack

Healthy proteins, carbs, and fats are essential to a well-rounded workout plan. Eating a small protein and carbohydrate-rich meal after a workout will help ease muscle soreness by repairing and maintaining muscles and connective tissue. Also, tart cherries make a great post-exercise snack that speeds recovery because they're rich in antioxidants that can ease muscle soreness.
