Everyone knows it’s important to fuel up before a big workout. While it’s easy to go for the cookies or sweets to fill you up before a workout, there are plenty of other, healthier options that you can choose instead. Let’s take a look at some snack choices that could help you get to the top of you game.

A Little (Apple) Slice of Happiness
Apples are a great snack to fill you up and get you ready to move. They’re high in both fiber and water, which means they’re nice and filling. At less than 100 calories, they’re a great pick-me-up snack for when you’re feeling just a bit hungry.

Five, Six, Celery Sticks
Celery is mostly water, meaning it’s one of the calorie food options out there. While you could always eat celery by itself, it’s always a good idea to pair with something to give it some real taste. Try peanut butter to add some extra protein! Have a peanut allergy? Try dipping your celery stick in hummus or yogurt.

Going Bananas!
Bananas are one of the best foods you can eat to both fuel up and recover. High in potassium, bananas can help you fend off those pesky leg cramps after a long workout. Bananas are also a great source of vitamin B6, which helps your metabolism.

The Nutty Successor
Nuts are a great source of protein to help your muscles grow big and strong. Almost every tree nut has its own set of benefits so you can mix and match based upon what you hope to accomplish. Like everything on this list, be sure to enjoy in moderation!

Egging On
Eggs can pack a lot of nutrients into that little shell. A great source of protein, they can help you get your day started on the right foot or help your muscles recover after you’ve pushed yourself to your limit. They also help raise your “good” HDL (High-density lipoprotein cholesterol) levels, which helps move the bad cholesterol out of your body.

Skip the Dessert, Head for a Yogurt
Have a sweet tooth? Give yogurt a try! A dairy product, yogurt provides a great source of calcium and magnesium, which helps to keep your bones nice and strong. Yogurt also helps you to feel fuller, helping to stave off those mid-day cravings and runs to the vending machine.
