- Carbs are not your enemy – if you pick the right ones. Try brown rice, sweet potatoes, or a spoonful of honey.
- Most fruits can be easily and quickly digested for a quick, nutritious burst of energy. Keep a banana, apple or orange in your bag for a pre-workout snack.
- Foods that come from a plant (like spinach, beans, or almonds) help you maintain energy, so try adding them to your lunch.
- Protein-rich foods help protect your muscle mass while your body metabolizes fat cells for energy. Make room on your shopping list for salmon, yogurt, and eggs.
