Veggie Bagel SandwichThe bagel is a great source of carbs to ensure energy during your work out. Also, the veggies add flavor and they are very light so you won't get a side ache or upset stomach while working out.
Peanut Butter Banana Toast
This meal is a great source of protein with the peanut butter, banana and carbs. Also, bananas are packed with potassium to prevent muscle cramps. If you are looking for something more low calorie I would go for the wheat bread or whole grain.
Fruit and YogurtFruit and yogurt is a more light and lower protein option. If you need more energy add a piece of toast or granola for carbs. I would also suggest getting greek yogurt instead of regular because it's packed with protein. The fruit is also a great source of vitamins and antioxidants.
WafflesWaffles are a great source of carbs but, you just have to be light on the syrup. If you add dark chocolate or some fruit to the batter then, you may not even need syrup. You can also replace the syrup with peanut butter or yogurt for a more healthier approach. I would also suggest making oatmeal waffles or whole wheat waffles.
Pasta and Veggies
Pasta is the ideal pre work out meal but sometimes the sauces are full of yucky preservatives that could slow you down. Make sure you eat the noodles with some light oil or fresh homemade tomato sauce. If you are eating your pasta with oil be sure to add vegetables to add more flavor.
Goldfish & CutiesBack to the lower school days all over again. Surprisingly, Goldfish and cuties are the best pre-workout snack. They are both cheap, and light.
Baked potatoes will definitely keep you full through out your workout and will give you lots of energy. Make sure you keep the topping light and simple. Add a few veggies, salt, pepper and some oil.
Smoothies are a great pre work out snack or meal. Always make your smoothies homemade never drink them out of a bottle because those are jacked with lots of sugar. Oatmeal and banana smoothies are my favorite and they are packed with protein.
Be sure to add lots of veggies to you sandwich and eat this no less than 4 hour before your work out. Choose your bread according to how hard your work out will be. If you are going to work out hard then get the high calorie white bread. If you going for a light and easy work out go for the low cal wheat bread.
Crackers & Cheese Please!!!
Cheese and cracker are perfect because they are incredibly light and will provide with lots of energy.
