Eat something with tomatoes after your workout, or drink tomato juice.
“Tomatoes and tomato juice may deliver a little TLC to your muscles, resulting in quicker muscle recovery. One study showed that tomato juice significantly reduced markers for muscle damage. Ideal for hydrating, tomatoes also pack water and potassium, which helps replenish the electrolytes you lose while sweating. Plus, they’re packed with antioxidants, like lycopene, that may be responsible for hastening muscle recovery by reducing inflammation,” note Lyssie and Tammy.
