BEST 7 PRE-WORKOUT SNACKS
Have you ever eaten and gone to the gym right afterwards? There were some days I couldn’t organise myself better and I swear, I wanted to puke when doing that set of squats! I figured that I get the best results when eating a light meal 2-3 hours before training, but you may want to eat only 1-2 hours before. Important is that the food doesn’t lie heavy in your stomach and that you have still enough energy to jumpstart your upcoming session.
The snacks I chose contain equal parts of fast-digesting carbs and protein to fuel your muscles before you hit the gym. Drink 5-6 dl of water with your meal to be ideally prepared for your badass training.
1) YOGHURT DREAM
1 cup of joghurt, 2 cups of fresh strawberries

2) COFFEE COOLER
1 americano, 1 scoop chocolate whey, 1 cup of ice cubes
Blend everything in the mixer until you got a creamy shake.
3) FANCY APPLE
1 large apple, 2 tablespoons peanut butter
Cut the apple in slices and dip them into peanut butter.
4) EXOTIC SMOOTHIE
1/4 fresh pineapple, 1 banana, 11/2 cups almond milk
Blend all the ingredients and add some ice cubes if you like it extra cold.
