3 On The Go Pre-Workout Snacks You Should Try

If you take a look around, you might notice that people are always on the move nowadays. Time is precious, they say. This makes it very important to always make the most of your time to do things — cooking breakfast while coffee is brewing, learning from an audiobook while driving to the office, and even drinking a protein shake while walking to the gym.

 

The same principle applies to working out. There are so many ways to maximize those 1-2 hours you spend in the gym. One of the things you should do is to prepare yourself before working out. Fire up and get your body ready to do intense physical activities. To get you hyped up before your gym session, check out these 3 easy eats for a more effective workout!

 

This easy and yummy pre-workout snack only has 3 ingredients!

  • scant 1/2 cup granola, divided

  • 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt, divided

  • handful of berries (you may choose a different fruit of your choice)

 

All you need to do is add 2 tablespoons of berries and spread it evenly using a spoon.  Layer this with 2 tablespoons of yogurt and top it off with berries. Repeat all this with the remaining granola, yogurt, and berries. That’s it! You can take out with you as you head out to the gym. You could also prepare this the night before so you could just grab it and go!

 

This goes out to people who love chocolate and need caffeine to function! For this drink, you’re gonna need a blender to make it happen. You will need:

  • 1 cup of coffee

  • 1/2 cup original unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 scoop/serving chocolate protein powder

  • 1 tablespoon of Splenda or sugar

  • 1 cup of ice

 

Just blend it all in and put it in your reusable container! Also, the calorie count will vary depending on the protein powder and milk brand you use. Regardless, you will get the perfect combination of coffee, chocolate, and the amount of protein and energy you need for the day’s session

 

 

 

This crowd favorite combination is considered a classic. It’s the perfect snack to eat when you want to temporarily feed a growling stomach. Here’s what you will need:

 

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread

  • peanut butter of your preference (crunchy or creamy)

  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 banana

  • honey

 

The first thing you should do is to toast the 2 slices of bread. After which, spread desired amount of peanut butter onto each piece of bread. Next, feel like a chef and drizzle honey in a zigzag pattern. Be mindful of how sweet you want it to be because adding too little or too much might ruin the deliciousness of your food. 

Then, sprinkle both pieces of toast with the chia seeds. Lastly, cut the banana into 18 or so slices, and position them on your toast in 3×3 rows. That’s basically all you need to do and you’re done! Pack it in your reliable Tupperware and you’re good to go.

With these pre-workout goodies, you’re full and energized enough to get you through your gym session for the day. Don’t forget to store them properly with the lids/covers tightly closed to avoid staining the activewear  in your bag!
