Three Snack Ideas to Help You Power Through Physical Therapy


Healthy Snack Ideas from a Physical Therapist

At ProActive Physical Therapy, we understand that many of our patients are squeezing PT into their day, which is why we offer convenient scheduling options and locations throughout the Tucson area. As physical therapists, we do our best to help our patients understand that proper nutrition is very important, especially when recovering from an injury or recent surgery.

 

We are breaking down three snack ideas that can help you power through your physical therapy treatment. We made sure that the snack ideas are easy to prepare, help reduce inflammation and taste great.

 

Pressed Juice

Whether you make it at home, pick up from a local farmers’ market or swing by Pure Love Juice, pressed juice can be a great way to get an extra dose of fruits and veggies. Try adding in anti-inflammatories, like turmeric, to help aid in quicker recovery.

 

Celery Sticks

Dress up your organic celery with a homemade hummus or nut butter. This quick and easy snack will fill you up and is easy to meal prep for an entire week.

 

Hard Boiled Eggs

Often forgotten about as a snack option, hard boiled eggs are a good (and inexpensive) way to get quality protein. They also supply Vitamin D, which helps keep your bones strong. And if you hate peeling hard boiled eggs, Trader Joes offers peeled hard boiled eggs for convenience.
