Peanut butter and banana toast
OH HECK YES. Probably one of my go-to post workout snacks because … NUT BUTTER, duh. Opt for 1 slice of whole grain toast, 1 tablespoon of nut butter and half a banana. If you’re looking for a nut butter recipe, try my Vanilla Bean Almond Butter.
Hummus and pita
Who says your snacks have to be basic? Grab a scoop of healthy fiber and protein-filled hummus plus a few pita chips for something flavorful, satisfying and delicious. My favorite recipe is my Garlic White Bean Basil Hummus (plus it shows you how to make your own pita chips!).
Cottage cheese avocado toast
Cottage cheese and fruit
Another great option is cottage cheese and fruit. Usually I’ll eat a banana, cottage cheese and add a dash of cinnamon on top. Literally the weirdest, yet the most amazing creation on this planet. Or if you’re working out early in the morning and want some breakfast goodness, try my Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes!
Whole grain cereal with skim milk
Energy bars are the ultimate goodness. Even better when you can make your own! Lately I’ve been really into these Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookie Energy Bites.
