Eggs - They've got it all! Fat, protein, and a little carbohydrate. This rich source of amino acid jump starts muscle repair. Eat one after every workout to build precious muscle.
Bananas - Full of energy boosting carbohydrates and potassium. Bananas are just as effective as sports drinks at keeping your electrolytes balanced.
Ginger - Not only does it fight nausea it can reduce muscle soreness by 20%. A great natural pain reliever.
Beets - I think the best way to eat them is in a salad, be sure to toss some in the next time you're at the salad bar. Beets help you push harder with less effort during a workout giving you a great metabolism spike.
