3 Pre Workout Snacks

We are now in the season of gym memberships, yoga mats, and kettle balls. I’d like to encourage all of you to keep up the great work you are doing to get in shape. To help you continue on your journey, here is a list of my 3 favorite pre-workout snacks:
  1. Bananas: The natural sugar found in bananas will help you sustain your energy level during your workout, plus the potassium does wonders for your blood pressure.
  2. Berries: Vitamin C found in berries is ideal for your muscles to begin strengthening and repairing during your workout.
  3. Bagel: A whole grain bagel has complex carbs that will burn slowly throughout your workout for a sustained energy level.
In the morning, I like to toast a whole grain bagel and smear almond butter. The nut butters give a dash of protein to help your muscles build. Then, drink a berry banana smoothie. Once your nutrition is on point, it’s time to get to they gym!

5 Natural Water Infusions

We all know how important water is to our bodies. Because our bodies are mostly water, all its systems run on it. For those who drink more water, they are more fit, have better hair, and more radiant skin, not to mention all of the internal benefits. The problem with drinking water is that it’s so boring! We all want to add things to it, but many additives are packed with chemicals and sugars that are going to eventually make us sick. So what is the alternative? Naturally infuse your water with fruits and herbs! Here are five of my favorites:
  1. Orange and kiwi
  2. Raspberry and mint
  3. Blueberry and lime
  4. Lemon and cucumber (my favorite)
  5. Strawberry and basil
The primary benefit of infused water is that it makes water more delicious, therefore we are more likely to drink it. The secondary benefit is we are taking in more vitamins an nutrients. A balanced diet includes a hefty portion of fruits and these waters are full of antioxidants and vitamin C. With infused water, we can kill two birds with one stone. The results will be a healthier body, smaller waist, and more energy.
