50 Pre- and Post-Workout Snacks first part

1. Perfect Yogurt Parfait

A parfait sounds fancy, but it’ll only take you three minutes to throw together this combo of 2 percent or full-fat yogurt, granola, and berries. Pro tip: You can make this in a disposable cup and eat it with a plastic spoon on the way to your morning workout.

2. Whole Orange Smoothie

Swap out sugar-packed juice for the real deal in this whole-orange smoothie. Confused about what kind of protein powder to use? Seebohar likes Thorne Research or NOW Foods protein powders.

3. Almond Coconut Mocha Smoothie

We love smoothies, but first—coffee. This recipe combines both. It’s perfect for an early-morning workout since the hit of caffeine will perk you up before you hit the gym.

4. High-Protein Oatmeal

Oats are a classic morning staple, but if you don’t want to clean up a pot before rushing to the gym in the morning, try this one as an afternoon snack. The recipe serves two, but we suggest dividing it into three portions and refrigerating the remaining two for smaller snack-size servings.

5. Blueberry Banana Protein Smoothie

It doesn’t get much easier than blueberries, bananas, yogurt, almond milk, and ice. Just be sure to swap out the suggested nonfat yogurt for a partial- or full-fat version— it’ll give you more fuel to crush your workout.

6. Banana Bread Greek Yogurt Parfait

This banana bread-inspired parfait is not nearly as complicated as baking up a sweet treat. You can pre-make a few and then pop them in the fridge for a grab-and-go snack on busy days.

7. Apple Peanut Butter Energy Bites

The classic apple-and-peanut-butter combo gets an upgrade from raisins and chia seeds. If you’re in a rush, skip the extras and just grab an apple with PB. Try stashing some to-go packs of peanut butter or almond butter in your gym bag so you can chow down on your way to indoor cycling class.
