5 Perfect Pre-Workout Snacks

5 Perfect Pre-Workout SnacksThe best thing you can do to make sure you're well-fueled for your workouts is to eat high-quality, nutrient dense meals regularly. What you put into your body right before a workout has little impact compared to what you eat on a regular basis! You don't necessarily need to take in energy right before a workout to have energy during a workout, especially if it's a short one. You already have a lot of stored energy in your body in the form of glycogen and fat. What you DO need is some sort of signal allowing the body to tap into those stored forms of energy. Snacks that are high in protein and healthy fat are perfect for this! You'll want to pick protein/fat sources that are easily digestible, especially if you're snacking super close to workout time.

Here are a few of my favorite pre-workout snacks:

Apple with Almond Butter A handful of fresh berries A green smoothie Half of an avocado A handful of nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts and cashews are all great choices) Cheers! Sam Swensen & Suja Juice
