Happy hump day beauties!!!! Today’s post is short but sweet:) I’ve got a really SUPER DUPER EASY recipe for a pre-workout 90 calorie snack idea! for me, because I tend to workout so early in the morning, I consider this 1/2 of my breakfast. I brake up my breakfast into pre-workout & post-workout.

For example what I did this morning.

FASTED CARDIO WITH CELLUCOR HD powder.

1 1/2 BANANA PROTEIN COOKIES BEFORE WEIGHT TRAINING (killed shoulders and abs)

POST WORKOUT : 6 EGG WHITES.

This is the perfect balance or carbs for energy before lifting and protein post training.

Banana Nut protein cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 9
 

Adapted from Bodybuilding.com
Ingredients
  • 2 very ripe mashed bananas (I thawed previously frozen ones)
  • 1½ cup quick cooking oats or traditional. (either is fine)
  • 2 scoops protein powder. (I used 1 scoop of About Time Banana Creme, and 1 scoop of Isopure 0-carb Vanilla)
  • (optional: A small handful chopped walnuts and raisins)

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix rolled oats and protein powder well.
  3. Mash your two bananas, and add to dry mix. Mixing and mashing very well.
  4. Optional: Fold in chopped walnuts or raisins. (this will increase macros a slight bit per serving. Fat and sugar content)

Notes
90 calories per cookie WITHOUT walnuts or raisins. This is a great pre-workout snack! Remember…Carbs are good, we use them for energy before a killer workout. Protein AFTER;)

I am a huge believer in MORNING FITNESS! This silly selfie, like allll my gym selfies, are taken between 5 AM- 7 AM. YEP. I’ve always preached it. The best part about early morning workouts, your body still practically has no idea what the fuck is going on, so you could pretty much trick it into doing anything! lol. The second best thing, is that, you realllly set the tone for the rest of your day. When you start your day on the right foot, on the “fit” foot, you are less likely to binge throughout the day.
I promise you that.
