Looking for a Pre-Run snack?
What are the chances you’ve gone for a short run on an empty stomach? I’m gonna take a guess and say that you have. But don’t worry, you’re not alone! Most people decide to skip having a snack because they feel it might affect their performance. In reality, you’re actually hindering your workout more than you’re helping it.
The right snack can prevent premature fatigue and keep blood sugar levels steady. An Orange has only 62 calories. It also contains more than 100 percent of your daily Vitamin C needs. Not only is it the perfect snack to curb the hunger, but Vitamin C helps prevent muscle injuries and replaces collagen in muscle fibers that break down during exercise.
So next time you need a boost before you head out on that jog, go grab an orange!
