This slightly sweet vanilla almond smoothie is mildly flavored while containing a good source of carbs and protein. Down this before you work out in the morning for sustainable energy the whole time.

Avocado Toast

Spread half an avocado on a piece of toast for the right mix of fuel for your workout. Try it on a rice cake if whole grains upset your stomach before you work out.

Another workout-ready mix: toast and almond butter. If you're craving something a little more sweet, then sprinkle with toasted coconut or add sliced banana.
