Eating prior to my workouts is important in order to get the best out of my workout. It helps meet my fitness goals by giving me the energy during the workout. I like to get a good amount of calories which help me push through the workout. I tend to eat small meals 30 minutes before working out. But when I do crave a meal before exercising. I make sure I eat 2 hours before. I want to share with you the three common post- workout snacks I eat.
Raspberry Peach Layered Oatmeal– I tend to make a good 1 cup of this. I eat the first half before and the other half after my workout. Toss berries in there and you get both complex and simple carbs.
Sprinkling chia Seeds will give you the energy and push you through the workout
Vanilla Almond Yogurt- A quick grab and go snack. And you can make it even better by topping it off with nuts, berries, etc. The yogurt(kitehill) is your canvas here. There is so many things I can think of to make this delicious. Drizzle honey, add bananas, flax seeds. Endless possibilities.
Green Oats Smoothie– I usually go for the smoothie after a workout. But it's up to you when you want to drink it. If you want to drink it before. I suggest you drink it an hour before your workout.
What do you eat before and after a workout?
