Best Workout Snacks!

AAY Workout Snacks

 

What you eat & drink fuels your body so you can perform at your best. To get the most out of your workouts it's important to consume the right foods, in the right amounts, and at the right times.

To keep it simple, we recommend you split a small snack that includes complex carbohydrates + protein. Have half 30-60 minutes before your workout to give your body energy, and the other half within 30 minutes post-workout to help your muscles recover.

Good Examples Include:

  • 1 slice whole grain toast + almond butter + 1/2 cup blueberries
  • banana + 12 almonds
  • nutritious smoothie (recipe below)
  • Greek yogurt + peaches
  • Apple + light string cheese

You also need to replenish the fluids you lose through sweat. Drink water before, during & after your workout, and continue to stay hydrated throughout the day, aiming for a minimum of 64 ounces.
