Fuel for Bodies in Motion

Bodies in motion need fuel. Before and after exercise, it’s important to feed your body the right balance of carbohydrates, fats and protein. Join this four-week activity to discover the healthiest snacks, including some go-to recipes to satisfy your hunger, fuel your workouts, and aid your body in recovery.

This week, eat a healthy snack before and after each workout:

  1. Pre-workout snacks. About an hour before your workout, grab a snack with a good balance of simple and complex cabs plus protein for energy throughout your workout. Good choices:
    • Turkey + avocado + whole grain bread
    • Oatmeal + dried fruit and nuts
    • Whole grain toast + a hard-boiled egg
    • Apple + almond butter
    • Yogurt + granola + fruit
  2. Post-workout snacks. Within two hours of exercise, protein-packed snacks help rebuild muscle, and carbs help restore energy. A few to try:
    • Light tuna salad + whole grain crackers
    • Scrambled eggs + veggies
    • Banana, peanut butter and chocolate milk shake
    • Roasted chicken, squash and apples
    • Cottage cheese + whole grain cereal + honey

Record which days you eat pre- and post-workout snacks.
