Pre workout snacks

Ok…..more ideas of snacks to enjoy before you workout. It’s about getting the mix of slow release carbs and protein you need to push yourself to the max. You wouldn’t head out on a road trip with an empty tank….so don’t expect your body to be at its best when it’s running on empty:

Caffeine shake: Need a pre-workout pick-me-up? blend 1 cup iced coffee (keep the ice) with 1 scoop chocolate whey protein.

Chicken n’ potato: For a fast bite, grab 2-4 ounces (or a palm-sized amount) of sliced chicken with an equal portion size of sweet potatoes

Veggie omelette: Add a little more color to your diet by combining 2 whole eggs shaken with 1 teaspoon of water cooked with 1 cup sautéed seasonal veggies.

Hearty salad: Need some greens? Try 1 cup of salad greens with assorted veggies, 1 hardboiled egg, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or your favorite low-fat dressing.
