I post frequently on Instagram Stories about my workout routine and what fuels me post-workout. I've recently gotten a lot of questions about what I like to eat and drink post-workout. Since I workout early in the morning, I generally don't eat prior to hitting the gym. But once my workout is over, I am in need of a solid source of protein that can aid in recovery and hydration. After a grueling workout and sweat sesh in the sauna, I drink a lot of water which fills me up too much for a full meal, but a high protein snack always helps to refuel me until lunch.


I was recently introduced to Ensure® Max Protein, a ready-to-drink nutrition shake that provides targeted nutrition to help you stay healthy, active, and energetic. Each 11 fl. oz. shake has 30 grams of high-quality protein, 150 calories, 22 essential vitamins and minerals, and 1 gram of sugar and is low in fat. You can't beat that kind of nutritional value for post-workout recovery.

Now that I am 50, it's even more important for me to get the post-workout recovery nutrients that I need to keep me fueled for the remainder of my day. Otherwise, I tend to hit an afternoon slump because I haven't properly recovered and my protein levels are low. Drinking Ensure® Max Protein at the end of my workout ensures optimal performance for the rest of my day whether I'm at work or shuffling my kids from one activity to another.

I purchase my Ensure® Max Protein shakes at Walmart where they are conveniently located in the Drug/Beauty section, which happens to be where I spend most of my time during the shopping excursions to Walmart. I love how they are packaged in bottles of four. They are super easy to throw into your gym bag or a small cooler for on the go.

Actress Kate Walsh, best known for her roles on Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice, is partnering with Abbott, the maker of Ensure to help inspire adults to join her in making simple nutritional changes to stay active and strong by incorporating Ensure® Max Protein shakes into their everyday diets. Kate Walsh knows the importance of protein and good nutrition for maintaining a healthy and active life, especially as we age and enter mid-life.
