Pre-Workout Snack Experiment Day 3

I wrote an article regarding whether I should eat before a workout.  Check it out here – To Eat or Not To Eat – That is the Question” .  Today was Day 3 of this experiment which consisted of sliced green apples and peanut butter.  

Preworkoutsnack3

 

This is a W-I-N-N-E-R!!!!!  It was just the right amount of carb and protein.  It kept me satiated and my stomach did not growl ONCE during my strength workout with my personal trainer.  This pre-workout snack is definitely a keeper.  It was also easy to  put together.  I want to try this next time with all raw creamy almond butter.  Doesn’t that sound good?  Let me keep this experiment going.  I have a few more days.

What have you eaten as a pre-workout snack lately?

      Now that right there sounds pretty tasty. Have they improved on the taste of the rice cakes?

    I’ve actually used a slice of raisin bread and peanut butter as a pre workout snack. I actually felt good during my workouts and didn’t feel like I ate anything too heavy.

    I’m a HUGE apple fan, but don’t have any nut butter around right now. Time to add it to the grocery list – great idea for pre workout 🙂

    This was a typical snack when I was growing up. It does keep you full and it is great if you and your family are on a budget.
