Food is fuel that’s why it’s vital for you to make the most of your workout at Spinbreak. But what are the best snacks to have before your class?
Carbohydrates are what the body needs to fuel your muscles to perform. Carbs will keep you going like a pro through every class.
Here goes our top 6 snacks
Fruit. Apples, bananas, berries… Any fruit is good before any workout as they are all rich in carbs. You can also have them with some peanut butter or a small handful of nuts
Yogurt.Natural yogurt is better for a pre-workout as it is higher in carbs unlike Greek yogurt, which is mostly protein.
Cereal.Stay away from sugary options such as Frosties and Coco Pops as well as high in fiber cereals. Best options are whole-grain variety like Cheerios or Weetabix. Just a small bowl with some milk will do
Pasta. A small bowl with some cooked veggies has just enough carbs to carry you through your workout. You can vary with rice and quinoa – whole type is always the best!
Oatmeal.A cup of oatmeal, maybe with some sliced fruit or nuts on top should do the trick.
Our Pasteleion Power bars: 100% natural, they bring just the amount of energy you need with very little calories. Full of organic almonds, dry fruit, chocolate, or honey, you can eat them 10 minutes before your workout.
It’s best to eat 30 minutes before you workout. That will give you enough time to digest, and for the carbs to be absorbed into your bloodstream.
As for what to avoid before your workout, stay away from foods with a lot of fat, refined sugars, high in fiber and high in protein. Food can slow you down so try not to have too much!
