Well, the second best part of my banana, granola, almond butter, chia creation is its protein and carb content. According to this source, this combo is dynamite for pre-workout eating. Feeding yourself properly before and after a workout is essential in maximizing your productivity during a training sesh. And who doesn’t want to do that?
♥ 1 Banana, Chopped
♥ 2 Tbsp of Almond Butter (or PB2, my favorite)
♥ 1/4 Cup of Granola (I use KIND Granola)
♥ 1 Tbsp of Chia Seeds
♥ Dash of Cinnamon
Just chop up the banana (and if you’re a organized-perfectionist… aka me… arrange in a perfect circle), divide the almond butter (or whatever butter you’re into) onto the banana slices, pour your granola into the middle (or put your bananas on top of the granola.. duh), and sprinkle on your chia seeds and cinnamon to taste.
How easy, right? I whip this up as an afternoon snack when I know I’ll be working out in the evening, or for a quick breakfast to start out the day on a good note. Protein is necessary for concentration, so its obviously the perfect breakfast choice before classes or work.
You can find a bunch of wonderful recipes like this in my Eat category in my Nav bar. I will admit, I have quite the talent for finding some pinterest-inspired snacks & meals. Shameless promo.
Peace out, lovelies.
