Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, Resilience Style.
How you recover and refuel your body are both so important, especially when you’re working hard to achieve your fitness goals. What if you could combine each of those factors into one?
We’ve pulled together some of our most recommended Resilience Recipes into a full day of protein-packed, recovery-boosting meals. Keep reading for a full breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Resilience CBD style.
PACK IN THAT PROTEIN
It’s most important to focus on your protein consumption after a workout. You’ve just put a lot of physical stress on your body and need to ensure you’re maximizing the impact of your workout. Protein improves muscle protein synthesis — the process where your muscles are recovering and adapting by building muscle mass.
REMEMBER TO RECOVER.
Recovery is one of the most overlooked aspects of fitness. Take it from the pros like Lebron James, Tom Brady, and Serena Williams. As mentioned above, exercise breaks your body down. In order to build it back up, stick to your fitness goals, reduce your risk of injury, and get the most out of your workouts, you have to ensure you’re recovering fully. Our line of CBD products is designed to do just that. To take it a step further, we created this full-day meal guide that packs in protein and our recovery-focused CBD oils so you can double-down on recovery and double-up on the weights.
These can all be meal-prepped beforehand, but for a dedicated CBD meal-prep guide, check out this blog!

- Peanut butter is high in protein and will play a key role in keeping your full until lunch hour arrives.
