Wake up early in the morning to exercise and need to fuel your workout? Go for a mix of protein and easily digestible carbs, which allow your body to stay energized during your workout without weighing it down. If you've got an early workout planned, then try one of these pre-workout snacks for the morning.
Morning Vanilla Almond Smoothie
This slightly sweet vanilla almond smoothie is mildly flavored while containing a good source of carbs and protein. Down this before you work out in the morning for sustainable energy the whole time.
Avocado Rice Toast
Spread half an avocado on a piece of toast for the right mix of fuel for your workout. Try it on a rice cake if whole grains upset your stomach before you work out.
Banana Almond Butter Toast
Another workout-ready mix: half a banana, sliced, atop toast and almond butter. If you're craving something a little more sweet, then sprinkle with toasted coconut as shown here.
