Fuel Your Body: 3 Pre-Workout Snacks

Many people tackle their workouts on an empty stomach, leaving their body without fuel and sustenance to build and repair muscles.  If you don’t have fuel to burn, your body can start using up muscle to keep it going!  I recommend eating a SMALL snack about 30 minutes prior to exercise. Make sure it includes a protein and healthy sugar. That way you have the energy to make it through the workout, and the building blocks to increase and mend muscle mass. Here are 3 easy snacks you can try!

Apple Slices and Peanut Butter:
Try a half of a small apple and a tablespoon of peanut butter. Remember to use natural peanut butter free of sugar and hydrogenated oils!

A DYI “Kind Bar:”
Create a fun mix of almonds, coconut, dried cranberries, pepitas, and chia seeds. Use an organic corn syrup to bind it all together, and bake. It is super easy. Try this recipe!

Greek Yogurt and Honey:
Remember to go easy on the honey, and if possible opt for an organic greek yogurt.
They are hard to find, but Stoneyfield makes a good one!
