Imagine your body as a machine. It needs nutritious food and exercise to keep going. But what you eat before a workout is just as important as the workout itself.

A good pre-workout meal is essential for the body as it gives you the energy to function better. Here are some foods that you can eat before hitting the treadmill.

Fruit smoothies

Apart from being delicious and easy to make, smoothies are a good source of adding glucose to your body before a workout. Smoothies also provide your body with much needed micro nutrients that are important for your well-being. Morning workouts don't seem that bad anymore huh?

Oatmeal/ porridge

Even though smoothies are a great way to start your morning workout with, oatmeal and porridge also make for great pre-workout foods. They can be made in no time and are a great source of carbohydrates and fibre. Always a good choice when you are in a rush!

Omelettes and wholegrain bread

Wholewheat bread is a great source of carbohydrates while eggs are a good source of proteins, making them the perfect combination to have before an early morning workout.

Fruits and peanut butter

The best snack before your afternoon workout session is fruit and peanut butter. Apple wedges or sliced banana with peanut butter make for one of the best pre-workout snacks. Also, they taste amazing!

Protein bars

Headed to the gym straight from work? Keep some energy bars handy in your purse. They are loaded with sugars and will give you the energy to carry on with a good workout session after a tiring day in office.

Chicken with rice and vegetables

A classic pre-workout meal, this combo is actually one of the best to have before a rigorous late evening/ night workout. It keeps you satiated and helps you get through all those squats and weights.
