Happy Wednesday! Today I’m linking up with Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Angelena Marie from Angelena Marie: Happy, Healthy & Balanced, Michelle at Fruition Fitness and Nicole from Nicole from FitFul Focus for Wild Workout Wednesday!
Let’s talk about pre-workout snacks! What you eat can make or break your workout. I’ve tried MANY different pre-workout snacks throughout the past two years. Through a lot of trail and error, I’ve found a few snacks that help me feel energized during my workouts. Of course, everyone is different, but this is what seems to work well for me!
Green Granny Smith Apple with Peanut Butter/Almond Butter – You can use any the of apple, but Granny Smith apples are my absolute favorite! Love the mix of carbs and protein.
Honey Stinger Waffle – I’ve been using their products for a while, but I’m currently loving the Vanilla and Lemon flavors. I normally eat one waffle before a long run.
Beet Juice – Just 4-6 ounces of beet juice gives me tons of energy. My beet juice usually included spinach or swiss chard, beets and half an apple. It’s SO tasty!
Healthy Skoop Ignite Performance Beet Blend – Continuing on the beet bandwagon, I won this product through a giveaway earlier this year and I love it! The ingredients are organic and it’s super easy to make – just add one scoop to water, shake and voila!
Protein Smoothie – Sometimes I will make a protein smoothie and drink half before a workout and then drink the other half after a workout. I know this may seem a little weird, but it works for me. My favorite protein powder is Vega Viva Vanilla Protein Smoothie.
With any of these snacks, I need to eat them at least an hour before my workout. I find that gives me enough time to digest the food before working out.
