Bananas As A Preworkout Snack - Follow Up

In July I blogged about eating bananas as a preworkout snack. Since then I have been very diligent in eating a banana as a preworkout snack before my daily swim. I have to admit that bananas are a wonderful snack, super easy to pick up and have on hand at all times.

The most important change this habit has brought to my life is that now I alot more conscious of how much fruit I eat a day. If you are curious about how many you should eat a day please feel free to check out MyPyramid. MyPyramid offers personalized eating plans and interactive tools to help you plan/ assess your food choices based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Here's to better health and enjoying a banana as a preworkout snack!

I love having a banana before working out, too! Depending on what I'm doing, I may have a banana, a honey/peanut butter/protein ball, or both. Isn't it the potassium in bananas that make them really good for your muscles?

Yes, I believe it is the potassium! All I know is that my muscles always feel better after my swim if I've had my banana! I'm sure you are eating a lot of them as much walking as you have been doing!
