FITNESS FRIDAY: What To Eat Before & After Your Workout

health

Hitting the gym and not sure when you should get your fuel? Hopefully this quick guide will help you get on the right track!

If you…
WORKOUT IN THE MORNING:
It’s true, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Sometimes it can be tough to eat anything heavy if you are an early riser, but eating something is better than nothing. Try a banana or apple slices with peanut butter, or if you wake up hungry, go for egg whites packed with veggies and a slice of Ezekiel bread (sprouted grains) with almond butter (my choice over peanut butter).

WORKOUT IN THE AFTERNOON:
Eat a light snack before you workout. Power foods are the goal here… try avocado or a little yogurt.

POST WORKOUT:
Make sure you eat within 30 minutes of exercising so you don’t go overboard later. Even if you aren’t hungry, fuel your body with protein whether it’s a shake or handful of almonds.

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout. This is possibly the single best thing you can do for your body… hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Cheers to healthy snacking,
KP
