Gluten-Free Pre-Workout Snacks

Energize With These Gluten-Free Pre-Workout Snacks

You're leaving for the gym in 30 minutes for a midmorning workout. You've got your outfit picked out, your cardio playlist set, and your gym bag packed. Since you ate breakfast almost two hours ago, all you have left to do is nosh on a little preworkout nibble. Choose one that contains easily digestible carbs plus protein so you'll have the energy to push yourself through your entire workout. If you're avoiding gluten, then the typical snack of crackers or peanut butter on toast is out of the question, so here are some low-calorie options that don't contain wheat, oats, rye, or barley.
