Staying energized throughout an entire workout isn’t as easy as it sounds. Luckily, a few minor changes in one’s diet will do the trick. If you haven’t already, try some of these healthy and nourishing pre-workout snacks for an optimal workout.
Nuts are loaded with carbs and protein so you can never go wrong with a handful of raw cashews, almonds, or walnuts. Jazz them up a bit with a few raisins or dried fruits for that added sweetness.
Plain yogurt, especially if it’s organic is the perfect source for the protein and probiotic punch you need to keep you from bloating during your workout.
Apple and peanut butter
Apples and peanut butter are the perfect combinations of sweet and salty and really scare away your cravings before the gym.
Avocado toast and hard boiled egg
This is a good option loaded with protein, grains, and good fats if you’re hungry for more than a snack. Toast a piece of whole grain bread and add some mashed or sliced avocado and a boiled egg.
It may not seem like much but having one before every workout quickly quiets your hunger and gets you through an entire workout. If you’re going for an early workout and haven’t had breakfast try adding it to a ball of oats and almond milk.
