10 Best Snack Ideas Before and After Working Out – Or Anytime!

I’m always hungry. I’ll eat a pizza, then two hours later I’ll be craving some more. Or worse, I’ll be craving some cookies or brownies that my grandma just dropped off. The worst is when you work out early in the morning, so the whole rest of the day you are scrounging the cupboards and pantry for anything that will satisfy your craving.

Let’s get to that list. I won’t say that all of these are super healthy, but for the most part they shouldn’t be too bad for you.

1) Granola Bars

I know, these are pretty obvious, but I just really wanted to share some of my favorites. And yes, obviously I like peanut butter so I apologize if you have a peanut allergy)
-Quaker Chewy Peanut Butter Dipps

-Nature Valley Protein Chewy Bars – Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate

-Clif Crunch – Granola Bar – Chocolate Peanut Butter


2) Boiled eggs 

I like to eat eggs in the morning, but eating them throughout the day is a big hunger quencher (is that a saying?) and is healthy for you as well.


3) Raisins

Not everyone likes raisins, but if you do, they are clean to eat and easy to carry around.


4) Protein (Peanut Butter) Cookies

These might be my favorite option for a snack if I had to choose one. It obviously tastes better if you include sugar and such, but they are still good with something like chocolate or peanut butter in them.


5) Protein Brownies (I know, it’s similar, but not the same)

Just look at that picture. Oh my. I’m hungry now. I’ll be back in a minute.


6) Trail Mix

Oh yes, reminds me of boy scouts. Actually, now that I think of it, boy scouts was not a good time for me, so let’s not talk about that. But hey, eating Trail Mix is a great time for me!


7) Fruit
Fruit is always a good option. I like apples and peanut butter. You can also do bananas and peanut butter. Pears are good as well. Kiwi is a less popular one, but I always enjoy a good kiwi.
