Perfect Workout Snacks

To perform your best, you need food for fuel. Here are three easy ways to add healthy fuel to your workout.

Are you looking for power foods to fuel your workout? First – you should try to consume about 45 grams of carbs for energy, and 8-15 grams of protein for muscle growth, whether you eat before or after your workout. Here’s some healthy workout snacks that can help you get that level of nutrition!

Tricked-out deviled eggs

Crave something more savory than sweet? Spread 2 tablespoons of hummus on a hard-boiled egg for a snack that’s packed with 9 grams of protein. And yes, include the yolk—it contains crucial amino acids that aid in muscle repair, Add some chopped chives for extra flavor!

Maple Peanut Butter Rice Bars

Here’s a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth, while also being a good protein source – and gluten-free! Combine a quarter-cup peanut butter (microwave for 45 seconds to soften it up) with 1 cupcooked rice and 2 tablespoons 100% maple syrup. Spread the mixture in an 8×8-inch glass container and store in the fridge. Cut into thirds for three servings!

Overnight oatmeal

Combine a cup of Greek yogurt with ½ cup old-fashioned oats, 1½ tablespoons maple syrup, and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract. Refrigerate overnight. The oats will plump up from the liquids in the yogurt. In the morning, sprinkle your favorite nuts and dried fruit for some extra protein and energy on top—no stove or microwave needed!
