You should consider eating a meal high in carbs and protein and low in fat roughly three to four hours before you exercise. Carbohydrates supply your body with the glycogen it needs to fuel your workouts. Some examples are:
- Fruit smoothies
- Yogurt parfaits with granola and fruit
- Whole grain bread with a couple of slices of lean meat
- Chicken with rice and vegetables
- Apples with peanut butter and raisins
- Greek yogurt
After your workout you should focus on repairing your muscles. Your body will be in a state where it needs to rebuild its glycogen stores and repair and regrow those muscle proteins. Protein helps repair and build muscle while carbohydrates will help with recovery. Here are some post workout meal options:
1 – RX Bar- 13 grams or protein. Ideal sugars for post training energy and recovery. Tastes great! Zero bloat
#2 – A protein shake that includes bananas, protein powder (I have vegan protein), a little bit of almond butter, spinach, unsweetened almond milk, and ice
#3 – A home made trail mix with a few dried cranberries for sweetness. Use your favorite nuts and seeds!
