Bananas. Nuts. Oats.

GRACE. BEAUTY. LAUGHTER. REST. COMPASSION. GOOD FOOD.


I love to cook and bake. I have compiled hundreds of recipes on Pinterest: Crowd pleasers: Traditional & Lightened versions of timeless favorites, as well as: gluten free, vegan, Paleo & Grain-Free... and a ton of Scones and desserts.

Nothing you eat immediately before a workout will fuel that workout. Digestion takes hours.

However, if you're feeling odd with the gnawing empty stomach, anything you put in first will help with that. Whatever YOU like.

A piece of fruit, a smoothie, some toast, crackers, a glass of milk. Absolutely anything that fits in your diet plan.

There isn't a "best to eat immediately before workout" because of that whole digestion thing - it takes hours for what you eat to be turned into usable energy anyway.
