I have been participating in some evening exercise classes recently which makes my dinner time later than the rest of the family’s. I can’t very well eat a full meal and then go run or to an intense exercise class. I found what works best for me is to fuel before hand with a gluten-free bagel & peanut butter or a NuGO Dark protein bar.
After my workout is over my new favorite way to refuel is with a simple steak salad. I pre-slice lean steak and marinate in Kraft Tuscan House Italian dressing. When I get home I simply toss the steak slices into a saute pan for a few minutes per side while I make my salad.
I could make this process even faster if I prepared the salad before I went to my class, so all I would have to do once I got home is cook the steak. Some of the other goodies I like to include in my salad:
- dried fruit (raisins)
- grape tomatoes
- snow peas
How do you manage fueling around dinner time workouts?
