What do you eat before you workout?

As part of the August Healthy Living/Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge, this is the twenty-sixth post in a month long series of posts.

Todays post is:  What do you eat before you workout?

For me, it depends on when I am working out.  Today, we just happened to be going to the gym after we had breakfast, so breakfast was what I had.

If I have spinning at 5:30 or 6 I will try to have a snack around 4ish.  Sometimes I don’t actually have breakfast/lunch until 2, so it makes the timing of food a bit tricky.  Since I’ve been low on money (and subsequently food) a quick snack is usually a half a piece of toast or a protein shake depending on how hungry I’m feeling.  I definitely need to come up with a better pre-workout snack that has a good carb/protein ratio.  If only I could find sunflower butter in Glasgow, it would go good on a rice cake/half piece of toast/apple (if I peel it).

I look forward to reading other people’s snack ideas!
