Laces strapped, Ipod charged, playlist ready, gym bag packed....it's time to burn some calories. But don't forget your workout fuel leave the sugar filled gels, candies, and energy bars behind and create your own with a few staple ingredients. Using fresh and dried fruits you can create a GIANT size bowl of Energy. I call it my "Energy Snack Quickie" the berries provide the antioxidants with a hint of tangy sweetness. The flax seeds and walnuts offer an abundance of Omega 3 fatty acids, in addition to antioxidants and a host of vitamins and minerals ranging from B-6 to Folate.
This bowl of wellness tends to be a great option for folks on the go, why? because there is simply no measuring required, just throw in whatever berries you have in a bowl top with flax or chia seeds, add some nuts, and dried fruit and WA-LAH!!! Energy to-go. The beauty of this snack is that it offers a natural sweetness that will fuel your workout from beginning to end without the energy crash artificial sweeteners promise. Hope you enjoy.
