Healthy snacks are a must before and after your workout. Make sure you get proper nutrition by stocking healthy snacks in your car, desk, or gym bag. One to two hours before your workout, keep your snack under 200 calories. Cereal with skim milk or trail mix with a latte are both good options. The mix of protein and carbs will help you feel satisfied and fueled and may also help reduce muscle soreness.
If you only have 15 to 30 minutes before your sweat session, choosing a snack that is simple to digest is key. Pick a snack that has about 25 grams of carbs such as a tablespoon of raisins, a few saltine crackers, or a small serving of applesauce.
