Friday Fitness Tip – Find the Right Pre-Workout Snack

This week’s Friday Fitness Tip is to Find the Right Pre-Workout Snack.  This is something a lot of people struggle with, including us. You don’t want to eat too much, in fear of feeling too full. You don’t want to eat too little in fear of not getting enough nourishment resulting in feeling light-headed.  A good rule of thumb is to pack your snack mostly with carbs and a bit of protein. This will help you perform best. We compiled a list of good pre-workout snacks:

  • Bananas – Great source of natural sugars, simple carbs, and potassium. 
  • Rice Cakes (with nut butter or hummus) – Rice cakes are usually fat-free, which makes them a quick-digesting, healthy pre-workout snack.  Spread on a thin layer of some nut butter or hummus for a touch of protein.
  • Apple & Peanut Butter –  Quick and easy snack that combines some healthy carbs with a decent dose of protein

What are some of your favorite pre-workout snacks?

  1. I always need to find a quick snack before I head to the gym. This is a great reminder of how simple it can be!

    1. Thank you! This is something we struggle with. If we don’t put thought into it, we are usually grabbing something very unhealthy just because it is easy.

    1. Thank you! Breakfast is a hard one because you want to feel fulfilled, but you also don’t want to be too full! The apple and peanut butter or even a banana and peanut butter might be a great option
