Why it works
Berries are low in fat, low GI for steady energy release, and rich in phytochemicals that quash cell-damaging free radicals. Bananas and apples are stuffed with vitamin C, which helps your muscles recover quicker after the gym. Mint contains omega 3 fatty acids, which help your body process protein and prevent muscle deterioration.
