Healthy Pre and Post Workout Snack Ideas

When I started running I didn't know much about what I should eat pre and post workout.  I just knew that I needed a run and would lace up and head out. I've schooled myself since then.

Fueling your body before a workout is just as important as fueling it after a workout.  It gives your body what it needs to recover and build stronger muscles.  Rule of thumb is to try and eat between 30 minutes to 1-2 hours before your workout and don't forget to hydrate.  If you're like me and get up wicked early and don't like to eat before a workout then make sure to eat something right after your sweat sesh.

Here are some snack ideas that can help pre-workout:

  • Protein smoothie
  • Piece of fruit with your favorite nut butter 
  • Granola bar
  • Oatmeal with berries
  • Hard boiled eggs
Post-workout snacks:
  • Bananas and peanut butter
  • Sweet potato and eggs
  • Greek yogurt and some berries
  • Protein smoothie
  • Protein muffins
I try and meal prep as much as I can and my favorite things to do are bacon egg muffins. You can make extra and freeze them.  My other favorite is sweet potato hash.  Delicious sweet potato and eggs, oooh so good.  I'll post the recipe soon. 

What are some of your favorite workout snacks?
