Workout Food Infographic: What to Eat Before, During and After

When it comes to workout food. I kind of have a ritual that seems to work pretty well for me.
I like to work out over lunch, so around 10 a.m., when my belly gets grumbly, I eat a protein bar. I work out about an hour and a half later for around 30 to 45 minutes, and then, in the car on the way home, I nosh on some raw almonds and dried apricots. Once I get home and have a chance, I have a proper lunch. Most of the time that lunch is leftovers from last night’s dinner, but sometimes I’ll make something quick and easy like turkey and avocado or a big-ass salad.
This workout food ritual kind of has me eating little bits all the time it seems, but it works for me. But this infographic from My Fitness Boutique in London that highlights what you should eat pre-, during and post-workout has me wondering if it’s time to switch things up a bit! Plus, it’s got some really tasty workout food suggestions.
(Quick note: you probably don’t need to eat during a workout unless you’re going at it for an hour-plus, but if you are, the advice below is good stuff!)
What’s your workout food ritual? I think I’ll try switching the timing on my protein bar and almonds-apricot snack today! Jenn
