Bananas: Bananas are loaded with digestible carbohydrates and are packed with potassium, which aids in maintaining nerve and muscle function. The body doesn’t store potassium for very long, so a medium banana before a workout with Greek yogurt. Wait about 30 minutes and then hit the gym. Your body will need the carbohydrates and protein.
Oats: Oats are full of fiber, which gradually release carbohydrates into your bloodstream, This steady stream keeps your energy levels consistent during your workout. Have one 30 minutes before you begin exercising.
Fruit and Yogurt: Fruit is high in carbohydrates and Greek yogurt is packed with high-quality protein. Protein doesn’t break down fast enough to become fuel for a workout. The carbs from fruit break down quickly and the protein is used later to prevent muscle damage.
My last choice for you is good old fashioned bread.
Wholegrain bread: A slice of wholegrain bread is a good source of carbohydrates. Have it with jam or honey for more fuel or sliced up hard-boiled eggs for high-quality protein.” Grab some bread about 45 minutes before you head out. You could top it with a couple of slices of turkey.
