The world is now obsessed with fitness. Everyone is motivated to stay healthy and fit and work towards becoming the fittest version of themselves. This is also a great trend that will eventually increase the overall fitness of an entire generation. But what comes with this blind craze for fitness is the urge to overlook any and every concern that you might have with regards to the side effects of over-exerting yourself. One of the most important things that people miss out on doing is eating right. While over-straining yourself in the gyms, it is important to eat what and how much the body needs. Here are a few pre-workout snacks that you should eat to stay energetic enough to have those long sessions in the gym.

Greek Yogurt with Berries 

The protein that your body needs is provided by the plain Greek yogurt while the sugar, Vitamin C and the fibre is provided by the berries. Not only is this combination extremely healthy and keeps you full for a long time, it also tastes delicious. You will start your workout in a great mood if you eat a bowl of this combination right before it.

Fruit Smoothies 

If you are opting for high intensity workouts, then you should definitely go for whole fruit smoothies. They are the body’s preferred source of energy and help you get going instantly. They have natural sugars that are very easy to digest. Here is a recipe you can follow for making smoothie. 

Banana with Peanut Butter 

If there is a plant-based natural source of energy that is the most appropriate one to have before a rigorous workout, it is definitely the humble banana. It is a really great source of simple carbs and potassium. It helps your muscles to perform to their optimum capacity. Topping it with a couple spoons of peanut butter or any other nut butter for that matter is a great option. 

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

The most loved sandwich of all time, the classic PB&J is also a great pre-workout snack to have. It is full of carbs and protein and can be perfect to pack and go to your gym. The best way to make it even better is to use multi-grain or whole wheat bread and a natural nut butter.
