Short on time? Sue Heikkinen, an ACE-certified personal trainer and head registered dietitian for MyNetDiary, explained that a handful of pretzels and a string cheese will do the trick. She recommends foods that contain carbohydrates for energy and some protein to help with muscle recovery.
Her other go-to's are half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (easy on the peanut butter) or Greek yoghurt with blueberries. However, Heikkinen noted that if she's eaten a balanced meal consisting of carbs, protein, and fat within two hours, she won't need to eat anything additional to fuel her workout.
