Pre and Post workout nutrition can enhance your performance and your results.  If you have your diet down to a Tee then it is time to get your snacks timed around your workouts.

Pre Workout:

With your pre workout you want to energize your body.  The perfect breakdown would be 45% Protein, 45% Carbohydrates, and 10% Fat.  This is a perfect time to have your fruit and use that sugar as energy.  Here are some great pre workout snacks:

1 Cup Blueberries, 1 Scoop Soy Protein, Water – made into smoothie
1/2 Banana, 1/2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1/2 Apple, 7 Almonds
1 Cup Strawberries, 1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt

Post Workout:

This is where you want to feed your muscles with some extra carbs. Your breakdown should look like 30% Protein, 60% Carbs, 10% Fat.  Here are some great post workout snacks:

Healthy Muffin* (lookout later this week – the muffin man)
1 Pita, 1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt, with dill, parsley, and chives
Homemade Protein Bars
