Fuel Your Workouts with These Healthy Snacks

 

Fuel Your Workouts with These Healthy Snacks

I know it is a total cliché, but when it comes to working out you do need to think of your body like a car. Sure “regular” fuel will get the job done, but put premium in that baby and watch it over-perform every time.

The ideal pre (or post) workout snack should consist of healthy fats, protein, and complex carbohydrates. Some of my personal favorites are:

  • A smoothie with fresh fruit and protein powder
  • SOYJOY bars or granola bars
  • A banana slathered with some peanut butter
  • String cheese and an apple
  • Tuna or salmon with a couple of whole wheat crackers
  • Yogurt and a few pistachios

Don’t feel limited though — there is a plethora of yummy, healthy workout snacks available for you to choose from. I turned to the blogosphere for some more delicious and creative ideas.

What do you eat to fuel your workouts?

    This is a great post… and so many tasty ideas and links! Thanks for including mine. :) I’m excited to check out the others! And I’m with you on the pb and nut butter, I eat that almost daily as pre/post workout fuel.

    I absolutely love the almond butter granola recipe from Julie. I’ve personally tried it and love adding it on top of greek yogurt. Chia pudding is something I’ve been wanting to make. Thanks for sharing all of these great ideas Jen!

      I have to try her almond butter.. it sounds amazing and I haven’t had almond butter in a while! I’ve actually grown fond of sunflower seed oil, but it is an acquired taste ;)

    Those protein truffles look amazing! Thanks for sharing this helpful snacks. I usually grab a protein bar or a Cliff bar when I’m on the go but I’m not even sure if a Cliff bar is considered relatively healthy. Is it?

      I’m not a nutritionist, but from what I have heard they are better than many others on the market.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
