Lets talk food.

What foods should you eat before/after a workout? I’ll tell you. Bananas are really good, they contain sugar, potassium, and fiber along with some great vitamins. Eating a banana before a work out is perfect because it’s packed with good carbs you can use as fuel. Next is nuts, not just any nuts specifically almonds. Almonds contain vitamin E, vitamin B2, and some healthy fat. They are little energy boosting packets that are great before or after a workout!

Grapefruit is another great food to fuel your body either before or after a workout. It’s been proven that grapefruit is a fat burner all by itself, it also contains fiber, potassium, lycopene, vitamin C and choline which help with an overall healthy heart. Citrus is really good to eat through out the day especially in the morning for fat burning as well as a little energy for your workout or just your day!

Some other little random healthy pre and post workout snack ingredients are some seeds, like chia and sunflower seeds. Spinach is another great food to eat, it is also known to help with weight loss. It contains vitamin K, vitamin A, protein and other essential vitamins, who knew a leaf could be so packed full of such healthy ingredients?!

All of the foods above are great post and pre-workout foods to eat! And can easily be put into a smoothie for one amazing superfood! Check out my recipe down below.
