What you’re eating before and after your workout can affect your workout performance and recovery. Next time you’re going to break a sweat, make sure you’re body gets the fuel it needs to reach its peak performance.

About 30 minutes to one hour before your workout, opt for “super foods” like dried fruits that are packed with antioxidants to give you an energy boost. Opt for snacks like raisins, dried plums, or dried cranberries.

Within two hours of working out, drink a glass of low fat milk and eat a banana or a handful of mixed berries. This snack helps to replenish electrolytes, promotes recovery of sore muscles, and renews your energy.
