One of the key factors that affect your ability to exercise is energy. If you don’t have enough energy, then your workout will suffer. 

So what are the top 5 snacks to fuel your workout?

First on the list would be protein shakes. These should be taken before or after a workout and they’re easy to find at any grocery store. All you need is some cold water and protein powder (depending on how you prefer them). It’s good to start with one scoop for lighter workouts and two scoops for more intense workouts.

Second, on the list would be dried fruit. Dried fruit is a great snack because it already has all its natural sugars so it won’t give you a sugar rush and crash like most snacks. It’s also good because it provides fiber, which can help with insulin sensitivity and digestion. Some dried fruits are better than others. You should look for lower-sugar varieties of fruit like apricots instead of bananas or plums instead of cherries.

Third on the list would be nuts (in moderation). Nuts have a lot of protein and fiber, but they also have a lot of calories. So you should only eat them in moderation because they are high in fat as well. Some healthy nuts include almonds, walnuts, cashews, and sunflower seeds.

Fourth on the list would be dried vegetables (in moderation). Like nuts, dried fruit should be eaten in moderation, so should dried vegetables. Some of the best vegetables to eat are carrots, peas and even celery.

Last on the list would be lean meat jerky. Lean meat is high in protein with little to no fat. But it’s important that you stay away from processed meats because those have a lot of sodium and preservatives. So look for an organic or all-natural variety.

These are the top 5 snacks to fuel your workout. But the important thing is that you need to drink plenty of water before and after a workout, especially if there’s heat involved in the workout. Heat can cause dehydration so make sure you bring some water with you when you decide to workout.

It’s best to eat your snacks about one hour before and after a workout because they will be digested by then. So make sure you have some of these top 5 snacks on hand before or after the next time you decide to work out!
