Snacking Made Fun
A healthy lifestyle and snacking do go together. Especially when you exercise regularly, you must regularly provide your body with extra energy. You can read all about smart snacking in this post!
An ideal snack before training (ideally 1 hour in advance) contains the necessary carbohydrates, but also proteins and a small amount of fat and fiber.
After your workout, your body has to recover from your physical exertion and needs building materials for this. Take in enough carbohydrates and proteins (with some healthy fats) within the first half hour after exercise, which will help replenish your lost energy and promote muscle recovery. Proteins in particular are composed of amino acids and therefore the essential building blocks of your muscles.
