10 Best Pre & Post Workout Meals / Snacks
15-minute food: mid-morning muscle fuel
Dried fruit muesli
By Robin Gill, head chef at Sauterelle, London
1tbsp pine nuts or hazel nuts
1tbsp dried parsnip
1tbsp dried banana
1tbsp dried apple
1tsp sunflower seeds
Drizzle of honey
The 15-minute method
1-4minsCore and slice the apple, then peel and slice the banana.
4-5minsSqueeze over some lemon juice. The juice will keep the fruit fresh rather than withering like your legs after Squats Tuesday.
5-13minsStick the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix. Sprinkle on the nuts. This mixture can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week, so mix some more and youll be set for a weeks worth of spoon reps.
13-15minsSplash over the milk. Add more if youre after quicker-wolfing wetness, less if you want some bite before crunch time at the gym. Finally, add the yoghurt and drizzle with honey.
Your bodys benefit
The banana is full of slow-release carbs to fuel your workout. The rest of the fruit and oats make this high fibre as well as low GI, which combine for a steady supply of energy rather than a spike and crash, says sports nutritionist Trevor Bedding. Which means you wont bottom out when youre at full tilt on the treadmill.
