Looking for extra energy and nutrition before your workout?  The right 2:1 balance of carbohydrates and protein can give you the nutritional power you need to start moving and feel like a top athlete in no time.

Smoothies are a great choice at restaurants or at home.  Keep an eye on the calories, which can quickly add up, and get creative with the ingredients whenever possible.  Try, silken tofu, nut butters, rice milk, and even add vegetables with your fruit for an extra punch of nutrition and serving of veggies.

Eggs are an excellent source of protein.  Pair scrambled egg whites or a hard-boiled egg with fresh fruit or a slice of whole grain toast.

Planning for a more intense workout?  Start powering up the day before with whole wheat pasta or brown rice topped with grilled chicken breast.  These slow-burning carbs will give you long-lasting energy for the next day.

How do you power your workouts with nutrition?  What differences do you notice when you don’t eat these kinds of food pre-workout?  Check back next week for ideas on post-workout nutrition, and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter for even more tips.
