You must fuel your body properly to have a successful workout. Exercising on an empty stomach isn’t always beneficial for your body—even if you’re trying to lose weight. And with a life as busy as yours, you’ll definitely want convenient snacks, too. (After all, snacks that take forever to make aren’t really “snacks,” per se.) The solution: Whip up these pre-workout snacks, which require only five ingredients each.
Ideally, you should eat a light snack one or two hours before a workout—particularly foods high in energy-yielding carbs. You’ll want a little protein and fat, which provide satiety and prevent you from feeling empty. (You don’t want too much protein and fat, though, since they take longer to digest and can lead to cramping during your workout.)
These five-ingredient snacks are quick and easy to make. Be sure to stock up salt, pepper, and honey which are not included within the five ingredients.
