It’s a no-brainer: Working out just doesn’t work on an empty stomach. But finding the right snack to eat before you exercise isn’t always easy. For one thing, it takes some experimentation’everyone is different. But for another, sometimes you run out of your staples and have to improvise.
I’ve already shared a couple of my favourite snacks: my date and almond smoothie and homemade energy bars. But tell us: whether homemade or store-bought, what are your go-to foods? What do you stash in your gym bag for quick energy, or keep on hand at home to eat before your morning run?
