Your pre and post workout fuel can make or break your performance and results. It is important to remember how vital nutrition is, not just the workout part itself!
Best Pre-Workout Foods
Whole Fruit Smoothie
Fruit provides simple sugars that are easy for the body to digest. Your body prefers this source of energy during high intensity workouts. For long lasting satisfaction, add peanut butter, chia seeds, flax seeds, or almond milk too!
For longer lasting carbohydrates, blueberry oatmeal will do the trick! Oats keep you full and energized for your longer duration workouts. Top it with some nuts, chia seeds, and plant based milk for additional protein!
Best Post-Workout Foods
Lean Protein, Rice & Veggies
Lean protein such as tofu, carbohydrates from the rice, and nutrients from veggies will properly refuel your body and help with muscle growth. Try interchanging the rice for quinoa and choosing different veggies each time you prepare a meal like this!
3 Ingredient Banana Pancakes
The simplest pancake to make, yet they taste like dessert and are nutritious! All you need to do is mix banana, oats, and nut milk to a blender till you have a consistency similar to typical pancake batter. Pour it into a pan like you usually would for your pancakes and voila! Top them off by adding berries and peanut butter.
