The importance of eating before exercise is something we are all aware of. However, when the rush to get to a class sets in......well, sometimes it's just hard to get that food in there! Here are 3 quick and adequate things to grab (give yourself 1/2 an hour between eating and exercising if you can). These double as great for after a workout, too.
A spoonful of almond butter and a piece of fruit. Put the spoon in a sandwich bag - you can wash it later :)
A handful of almonds or sunflower seeds (or both) in a sandwich bag and a piece of fruit.
A hard boiled egg and a few carrot sticks or slices of cucumber. Throw it all in a sandwich bag.
Yes, thank goodness for sandwich bags.
I always boil up 8-10 eggs on Sunday ready for the week. So simple and a perfect protein (organic or local farm eggs are the way to go).
I have a sandwich bag with home-made trail mix in it with me at all times, along with an apple or banana- organic is a good choice for apples. Near the top of the list for heavy pesticide residue :(
If I don't have it that day, I know I will soon.
My trail mix: roasted, unsalted almonds, shelled pistachios,raw sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds - all courtesy of Bulk Barn. I jumped for joy when it opened in Kemptville. Literally jumped for joy - I am a food geek.
