Great pre-workout snacks before that afternoon practice

School is in full swing. That means no longer is there the luxury of TIME before after-school or afternoon practices. Snacking between lunch and your workout is one of the most important fueling times of the day. Here are some performance-enhancing options:

If you have 45-60 minutes to spare:

In the car - try one...
1 Clif, Luna or Larabar
Trail Mix- Try Planters Nutrition Sustaining Energy Mix (pre-packaged in single servings)
1 Jiff to-go container of PB or Justin's to-go container of almond butter with graham crackers

At home - try one...
1 PBJ or any other type of nut butter
Cereal and milk: Try Life cereal or cheerios; use non-/low-fat milk
Cottage cheese and fresh fruit

If you have 15-30 minutes to spare:

In the car - try one...
2 handfuls of raisins or other dried fruit
2 handfuls Teddy Grahams
1 package Nature Valley crunchy granola bar

At home - try one...
1 Banana
1 Frozen fruit bar
1/2 cup juice mixed with 1/2 cup water

Be Extraordinary,
