These 3 snacks -- which you might have never thought to reach for -- may help to ease some of that post-workout pain.

Pickle juice: Due to the high salt content, the juice is filled with electrolytes, which can be very helpful after a tough workout.

Sweet potatoes: These are high in potassium, calcium, and magnesium, all of which will help with muscle contraction.

Tomatoes: This kitchen staple is filled with potassium and water, which are both important to ensure your body is able to recover properly after exercising.
