Workout snacks

    As some of you may know, I need no excuse to eat something.

    But I do feel like eating when I work out. Whether it is running, swimming, martial arts, hiking, etc. My wife even makes it a habit to make sure we always pack snacks for after if we are not near home.

    Did my Tuesday run tonight. Thought it was going to be cool since a cold wind was blowing in with the rainy weather. So I ran in a t-shirt. It did not rain and it was not cool out. When I took my shirt off, it weighed at least three pounds with sweat.

    I digress. Snacks tonight. Pistachios and pittaya (dragon fruit).

    What do you eat before, during and/or after your workouts?

    I like to eat a bunch of Smoked Almonds and chicken with White Rice, with a very light Hoisin sauce marinade! I like to BBQ the chicken to caramelize the sauce and get some char! After work out is a fruit smoothy using black tea and yogert and what ever berries we might have!

    Today was a plate of fruit (golden kiwis, banana and li hing star fruit) and toast (one was bulletproof with "a great deal of butter" and coconut oil, the other was butter and slap ya mama).




    I made li hing star fruit for a friend yesterday and made up the last of ours today. So I ran out and harvested some more.



    The flowers

    Anyone have coffee as part of your workout snack? I do. And I like it.

    Before and after...

    Before taking the dog on our 3 1/2 mile jaunt, I had banana topped with honey, yogurt, chia seeds and bee pollen.




    After was a sandwich and bulletproof coffee. Sandwich had peanut butter, honey, butter and coconut oil.
