Inspired by Fitness Cheerleader’s blogging challenge prompt, what do you eat before a workout?
What I eat depends on 2 things, 1. whether or not I’m eating on the go and 2. the type and intensity of the workout while keeping in mind that I need a healthy combination of carbs and proteins.
Some of my favorites are….
Almond Butter and Banana Overnight Oats. This is what I eat when I’m working out in the morning and when I have the time for a sit down breakfast. I have perfected this recipe! If it were up to me I would eat almost every morning.
Chocolate Overnight Oats with Sunbutter and Banana. Fueling my workout on a non-work day with a leisurely breakfast on the deck. Perfect!
When I workout in the evening after work it’s on-the-go snacking usually during my drive home from work. Larabar is one of my favorites. Have your tried their Peanut Butter and Jelly bar? Seriously good.
I love a variety of different trail mix-ish combinations of dried fruit with nuts/seeds. Nature Box has a perfect variety delivered right to your door for this type of snack. The dried pears and smoked pepitas is a favorite combination!
When I’m not eating on the go but time is limited a favorite standby pre-workout snack is a whole wheat english muffin with almond butter and banana. I seem to always have the ingredients for this in the house.
One more favorite on the go bar is a Clif Energy Bar. The mini size is perfect to get me through a workout after work and before dinner.
