While everyone’s nutritional requirements are different depending on their goals and activities, these snacks can offer the right balance of carbs, fats, and protein to satisfy hunger, fuel workouts, and aid in recovery. I know they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day but just as important is the snacks or meals pre- and post workout. Here are some good healthy options:

PRE-workout:

Need a pre-workout pick me up? TRY 1 cup of Iced coffee with 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein.

Yogurt Parfait: Add fruit….(yogurt kinda makes me gag, am I the only one?) So I need to add granola!!

PB apple- one apple with scoop of all natural PB

Dried fruit- My favs are apricots, cranberries and pineapple.

Veggie omelet- 2 whole eggs shaken with 1 teaspoon of water cooked with 1 cup sautéed seasonal veggies.

Fruit and cottage cheese: Sometimes instead of fruit I eat it plain with salt and pepper. Love this one!

POST- workout-

MYFAV choice- chocolate whey protein ( I only like chocolate flavor powder; but you can use whatever flavor you like best) banana, PB, ice, almond milk

Banana Shake- Banana with one cup of milk, blended

Green Shake-Blend 4 cups spinach, ½ cup vanilla bean yogurt, 1 cup almond milk, 1 banana, and 1 tablespoon peanut butter with ice.

Tuna Crackers- Tuna with light mayo topped on whole grain crackers, salt and pep it up!! Just tuna with chopped celery is amazing too!

Ant Rice cake- Spread all natural peanut butter on a brown rice cake with raisins on top. Delicious, trust me!!!

Pita and hummus
