Almond and banana pre-work out snack

Almond Banana Pre-Workout Cookies/ Snacks

Why pre-workout?

These cookies have protein, fat and carbohydrates in them. These nutrients are fuel for the body, making them a great choice to eat before a workout.

Each cookie also has about 50 mg of potassium which is also an ideal ingredient prior to exercising to prevent muscle cramps and aid in fluid balance.

Avoid eating too close to a workout. I suggest having a pre-workout meal 15 – 30 minutes before your workout.

At least 60 – 90 minutes of moderate intense exercise is recommended for adults 3 – 5 times a week.
