Recipe: pre-work out snacks

People often ask me what I eat and don’t eat.  I eat every 3-4 hours and I eat very healthy.  No sugar or sauces or spices (apart from herbs).  No starch at night.  No sweets, cookies or chips.  I have one “cheat meal” a week – usually Ribs on a Friday night.  I do, however, love eating!! During the last few years my wife and I have found (or developed) recipes that I can enjoy – for snacks or meals.

I will share some of them with you on this page!  Let me know what you think!

Pre-workout Balls 1

Mix 1 cup Oats, 2 scoops whey, half cup honey and half cup peanut butter.  Roll in balls.  Dust with cocoa.

Keep in fridge and eat before training.

For a fast pre-workout snack mix 1 cup oats; ½ cup mixed nuts and dry fruit; 2 scoops whey; 1 tbs brown sugar, 2 scoops whey and 1 tsp cinnamon.  Store in an air-tight container.

More balls;

Mix 1 cup oats, 2 tbs flax seed (or mixed seeds) and 2 scoop whey protein.

Add ½ cup peanut butter and ¼ cup honey.  Mix well.

Roll into balls and place in refrigerator for approximately 30 minute to chill.
