Health Tip: Eat a Pre-Workout Snack

(HealthDay News) -- A pre-exercise snack can be just what your body craves to push it through a grueling workout.

  • A sandwich with peanut butter and jelly, or peanut butter and banana.
  • A cup of berries with yogurt.
  • Oatmeal mixed with milk and fruit.
  • An apple with nut butter.
  • A handful of one part nuts to two parts raisins.
