Hey barre-tender, hit me with another. Another healthy snack idea, that is!
When you are on a mission to make changes in your life—specifically in your body—it’s easy to get wrapped up in counting calories and start adapting a less-is-more approach to eating. The truth of the matter is, though, that your body needs to be fuelled properly to make the shifts you desire. It can be tough to plan out three well-balanced meals and a couple of snacks each day, we get that, so have put together a little inspiration for you. We surveyed our fantastic (and pretty frickin’ fit) barre instructors to find out what their top post-workout snacks are. Follow their leads and pop one of these powerhouse food combos into your gym bag to enjoy after class and you’ll be seeing the results you crave in no time.
“Toast with almond butter and honey or quinoa with a sliced avocado and squirt of lemon or lime. I also do a protein smoothie by blending a frozen banana, blueberries, a fistful of spinach, flax seed, and a scoop of Vega One protein powder with either 1 cup water or almond milk.”~Adriana
“I love a piece of whole wheat bread with peanut butter and sliced banana.” ~Emma
“Greek yogurt sprinkled with granola with raisins!” ~Tara
“Celery sticks with almond butter or half an avocado, straight up.” ~Johanna
“An apple with a low-fat baby bell cheese. Yum!” ~Lindsay
“My go to, aside from dominating Fuel Bars, are a boiled egg and half a peanut butter sandwich, or an apple and personal-sized Greek yogurt.” ~Marlo
“My fave post-workout snack is a big ol' chug of H2O (w/ a pinch of salt) to replenish electrolytes, and apple slices with almond butter. I also do a mini ancient grain wrap filled with with hummus and spinach.” ~Jackie
“I like the thin brown rice cakes and natural peanut! Oooooor….candy and wine.” ~Jill The latter suggestion should wait until after the BBS 30-Day Challenge is complete, though ;)
