Great Pre Workout Snack Ideas

I found these 11 great snack ideas on steadystrength - (www.steadystrength.com)


1 – Orange Creamsicle Protein

Blend 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein with 1 cup of orange juice and 1 cup of ice.

2 – Power Balls

You can add any ingredients that you want, but here’s just an example…..

Mix all in 1 bowl: 1 cup dry oatmeal, 1 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup ground flax seed, 1 scoop protein powder, 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips. Chill for 1 hour. Make into little balls and eat.

3 – Fancy Oats

Make half a cup of cut oats topped with tablespoons of any of your favorites like dried fruit, almonds, or walnuts. You can even sprinkle some cinnamon on top. If you want to add some sweetness you can mix in some honey.

4 – Fruit Leather

You can probably find this natural fruit roll in organic or natural food stores. You can even make them at home on a cooking pan.

5 – German Chocolate Shake Protein

Make a protein shake with chocolate protein powder, and then add two teaspoons of extra virgin coconut oil.

6 – Eggs On Toast

Eggs aren’t just for the morning. They provide optimal levels of protein and healthy fats. This snack is already a little on the heavier side, so you might have to give yourself a little more time to digest.

7 – Greek Yogurt With Cereal & Strawberries

All you need is 1/4 cup greek yogurt topped with 1/2 cup whole grain cereal and 1/2 cup berries.

8 – Fruit-licious Oatmeal Shake

Blend 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder with 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup frozen berries, and 1/4 cup oats for some longer lasting energy.

9 – Cottage Cheese & Pineapple

This one is less calories, but doesn’t skimp on the protein. Just 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese with 1/2 cup pineapple, melon, or berries will do the trick!

10 – Sweet Potato Fries & Chicken

You can make really healthy crunchy potato wedges by cutting up whole sweet potatoes, sprinkling them with cinnamon, and then baking it.

11 – Peanut Butter, Banana & Honey Toast

This is a higher calorie option that tastes more like a dessert.  But packed with goodness!
