Top 5 Healthy Training Snacks
- Coach Musab
Here is my top 5 on the go healthy snacks.
A handful of raw nuts are an ideal on-the-go superfood. Nuts like pistachios, almonds, and walnuts supply healthy fats for optimal fitness. Eating raw nuts provides good fats and fiber shown to reduce the risk of heart disease. Nut consumption can also help with weight loss.
Hard-boiled eggs make a smart snack choice for a quick pick-me-up. They are easy to make and rich in protein, B vitamins, and choline. Eggs contain essential nutrients linked to a lowered risk of heart disease.
Greek yogurt and mixed berries
Plain Greek yogurt and berries make a delicious, nutrient-dense snack. In addition to being a great source of calcium and potassium, Greek yogurt is also high in protein. Berries are one of the best sources of antioxidants around. Eat a mixture of differently coloured berries to get an array of these powerful compounds.
Dark chocolate Dark chocolate makes for a rich, satisfying, and portable snack.
Dark chocolate is loaded with flavanols that may lower blood pressure and reduce heart disease risk, provided the chocolate contains at least 70% cocoa solids (24). Dark chocolate is high in magnesium. One ounce provides about 300 calories in total, depending on cocoa content.
Chia seeds are loaded with fibre and can be included in all types of diets, including vegan and ketogenic diets. They’re also high in antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and improve heart health.
