Snack Attack: Pre and Post Workout Snacks

People are always asking me what makes good pre- and post-workout snacks and so I am always on the lookout for them. As you can imagine, I was thrilled to see that MSNBC recently did an article on the best fuel for your workout and they are:

Before the workout:

  • A banana with yogurt.
  • A whole-wheat toasted bagel with fruit spread.
  • A quick bowl of instant oatmeal.

For a quick refuel after the workout, just


After the workout:

  • A peanut butter sandwich.
  • A small handful of walnuts or almonds.
  • A fruit smoothie with some protein powder.

Of course if you have time you can always try the eggs and toast breakfast or just a glass of chocolate milk.
