Everyone loves a good charcuterie board and today, I’m sharing 3 post-workout snacks inspired by my favorite boards and ingredients that are packed with protein, healthy fats, and carbs to keep you satiated and help your body refuel.
Recently, I’ve been doing a lot more working out from home. There’s nothing like that feeling after you’ve crushed a workout -yes, even the ones that are happening in my living room. The sense of accomplishment is gratifying and it makes me feel like “I did something” today!
Of course, with working out comes an increase of appetite; and just because I’m at home it doesn’t mean that I’m always going to make the best snacking choices, making it more important than ever to prep my post workout snacks.
In a previous post, I shared how I pack the crunchy, cheesy Moon Cheese Snacks inside my glass meal-prep containers for the office, so as you can imagine, packing a healthy snack to eat after my workouts (both at home and at the gym) is the norm.
Over the years I’ve gotten used to packing complete post-workout snacks for refuel and to help me carry on with my day -so I can avoid raiding my pantry and fridge.
I love that Moon Cheese is made with 100% real cheese, so it’s naturally low-carb and high protein. If you’re low-carb, keto, or just looking for a snack that won’t leave you with an energy crash, these are the way to go.
What are the Best Snacks for After a Workout
After a workout, our bodies go into repair mode. Eating the right combination of protein, fat, and carbs can help the muscles build back stronger and faster, which means you recover more quickly and make those #gains.
Lately, I’ve been into easy, grab-and-go foods for after a run or at-home workout, and Moon Cheese snacks have been my favorite because I can order them online without having to leave the house!
Moon Cheese Snacks come in large bags for family-size snacking or single-serve portions, which are perfect for someone like me, who eats them by the handful.
Today I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to prep healthy snack boxes ahead of time where I include Moon Cheese. These charcuterie-inspired snack boxes are my favorite!
Traditionally, charcuterie boards have a variety of fruits, vegetables, cheeses, crackers, spreads, dried meat, etc. tastefully arranged and usually served at parties and large gatherings. It’s all of my favorite things served free-style, and if I could serve meals like this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, I’d be one happy gal.
Thankfully, I can recreate that same concept into something that’s more portable and that can be kept in the fridge for a day or two, like these mini-meals with Moon Cheese snacks.
Not only are these post-workout boxes gorgeous, but they also include the perfect balance of protein, carbs, and fat from our favorite snack foods #winning!
After Workout Snack Pack Ideas

How to Pack Workout Snacks
I like to make bento-style snack boxes and lunches for my family. They include a variety of fresh fruits, veggies, protein, and at least one crunchy element, and these days; it’s Moon Cheese.
They have flavors like “Garlickin Parmesan,” “Get Pepper Jacked,” as well as the “Cheddar Me Bacon,” “Cheddar Believe It,” and my favorite, “Oh My Gouda.” Those names though…
To keep the Moon Cheese crunchiness intact, I use snack containers that come with compartments.
The Moon Cheese is the perfect swap for the usual cracker or chip because it gives that element of “crunch” without the carbs and they’re gluten-free! And you know I love to #CrankUpTheCrunch, right?
