Going into a workout with a growling stomach is no foundation for a good session, and eating the wrong things before a workout is like banging your head against the wall (the pain comes later). With this in mind, I have selected four pre-workout snacks with vastly different flavours- so you can choose an energy booster that primes you for your work out and puts a smile on your face.
½ C up Oatmeal- Perfect for morning workouts, oatmeal provides quick burning fuel and the small portion won’t weigh you down.
Chocolate Milk & Banana- Chocolate milk and a banana will have you storming through your sessions at the intensity of an athlete. “Milk” contains one of the highest- quality sources of protein in nature. The carbs inside these two improve your endurance and drive- both of which make for better workouts.
Cup of dried fruit- The natural sugar in dried fruit will give you a quick energy boost and is perfect for on-the-go snacking.
Veggies and Hummus- Dipping sliced cucumbers or carrots into hummus-, which is made from heart healthy chickpeas, makes them a lot tastier and fun to eat!
