What to eat before and after a workout


Workouts are hard and all that physical exercise will definitely make you hungry. However, in order to make sure that all that effort was not in vain, you have to be very careful about what you eat. I know that your body craves sugar or foods that have a lot of fats, but you have to keep away from them. You are allowed however to eat some foods that are low in calories and which will fuel your energy and make you start your workout with a lot more energy than usual or will quench your hunger. Here are some of them:


  • Whole wheat toast with bananas

Working out requires a lot of energy, which is why you should stock up on carbs. This is an example of a great meal before going to the gym. Fruits, especially bananas, contain a lot of potassium and give you a ton of energy for the workout. The whole wheat toast also contains a lot of carbs and will give you plenty of energy to finish an entire workout. On top of this, it is also delicious!


  • Vegetable Omelet

After you finished the workout, your muscles are hurt and your whole body is in pain. You need a dish that will help your muscles grow back again and give you enough energy for the rest of the day. An omelet with vegetables topped with avocado and cooked with olive oil will do all of these for you. The avocado will help your body absorb monosaturated fats on the one hand, as well as the vitamins that the vegetables contain such as vitamins A, D, K, E and more. The vegetables give you enough energy to recover and they are also tasty!


  • Smoothies

Smoothies are every fitness junkie's best friend. They are easy to make, very healthy, they have a ton of energy and you can create all sorts of mixes without having to research for complicated recipes online. Smoothies are made by mixing various fruits in a blender. It is recommended you also use Greek yogurt and some granola in the mix in order to give the entire mix a thicker consistency.
