Quite often people ask me what I snack on, especially when I’m on a Whole 30. In fact, when I tell people about the Whole 30 I am usually met with “what do you eat?”. I’m finding that people don’t realize how much nasty crap they’re eating until I really spell it out for them by explaining what I eliminate and why.
Because I’m on the go so much and, it seems, pretty much living at the gym, I’m always hungry and need to be prepared for when hunger strikes and for pre-workout fuel.
So, for those of you who are interested, here’s the short-list for my snacking staples:
I LOVE me a good Larabar. There are so many different flavors to choose from and they are made (mostly – some of them have chocolate or peanut butter) from 100% natural, clean ingredients. And since the primary ingredient in a Larabar is dates, they’re an excellent source of energy. You can be certain there are always a few Larabars stuffed in my gym bag.
I often make my own Larabars…especially when I’m rockin’ a Whole 30. It’s inexpensive and I can ensure they’re compliant.
3. Fruit – Fruit is usually my number one go-to for snacks. I usually have apples and bananas in my fridge at home and at work. If I have a big workout coming up, I will usually have one of the two a bit in advance. I often will throw an apple in my gym bag as well.
