The Whey to Victory

For athletes, an essential part of preparing for the big games is recovering properly. There are two types of proteins in dairy that help with this: whey and casein. Both support post-exercise recovery, but the human body absorbs whey quicker. So remember to eat foods like Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and milk after a hard workout!
