    556  Views

    When you intend to sweat it out, which we're sure you've planned on multiple, multiple times, make sure to NOT do it on an empty stomach. Pre-workout snacks (yes, this is a thing) and meals exist, exactly for this reason. Studies suggest a good snack/meal before hitting any form of exercise will help improve focus, preserve lean muscle mass and help support your body's recovery after a strenuous sesh. So to give your body the proper fuel it needs to maintain and finish any workout on a high, we suggest you load up on pre-work snacks from these online brands available on the LBB Shop. No, they aren't boring and flavourless. Yes, they are equally addictive as regular snacks. Read on. 

    O'Greens

    A snack bar is the quickest and easiest way to increase those energy levels before any big day at the gym (or home gym) but most choices leave us feeling short-changed. With O'Greens and their range of artisanal bars, this will change for good. We cannot recommend them for health and flavour rolled into one enough. Especially the Choco Orange and the Pistachio Moringa Energy Protein Bars. These delicious nuggets are also natural, organic, vegan and gluten-free.

    The Whole Truth

    First we must give extra points to The Whole Truth for its on point branding. Every one of their protein-packed bars (10% of daily protein) is natural with no nature-identical ingredients, no natural colours and no man-made fibres. The brand gloats (rightfully) that they have nothing to hide, sharing all ingredients on the front cover. Their Bars, Mueslis and Immunity Balls (all zero sugar and vegan) will satiate unhealthy cravings and a couple before a workout will leave you feeling energised!

    Green Nutri Power

    If you're someone who enjoys a good protein shake before you put in those hours at the gym, check out Green Nutri Power for their plant-based vegan supplements and vitamins. Made with pea, brown rice, and moong protein (some even have ayurvedic herbs and antioxidant rich foods), they have supplement options for weight loss/gain, muscle gain and mass gain. Green Nutri Power, also has energising snacks, of which the Flavoured Cashews are most popular.

    True Elements

    True Elements

    True Elements is the find for all our workout meal prep woes (pre and post). We love the variety and liberty of choice, really. Baked Granolas to Gluten-Free sweet and savoury Rolled Oats -- everything on their line of preservative free healthy snacks makes for a lovely meal before any workout. We can't stop reordering, hoarding and continuously munching on their Trail Mixes and Seeds and Dried Fruits -- everything from goji berries to watermelon seeds.

    All Good Taste

    All Good Taste

    Available on LBB

    High on health, high on taste, vegan and include cookies? Well, we don't intend to make you feel guilty of an indulgent snack before a workout, but All Good Taste will make you feel that way. Don't worry, there is zero guilt in snacking on their Dark Chocolate Bars packed with protein, on-the-go Cookies and Wholegrain Snack Bars. Recommended are the Le Chocolat Bars with organic dark chocolate, rolled oats, California almonds and honey and the Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies. No refined sugars, glutens and preserves means you can snack to your heart's content.

    Flat Tummies

    Flat Tummies

    Available on LBB

    Extra points to Flat Tummies for recognising what we like (sweet stuff) and what we want (flat tummies, duh) and giving the two in their range of everything-free (guilt, sugar, gluten, dairy, preserves) Cookies, Almond Thins, Fibre, Protein and Vitamin Bars. The Almond and Flaxseed Jam Cookies and Millet Cookies in coffee and chocolate flavours is something we cannot put down. A pack of these as a pre-workout snack and you're blessed with energy.

    Ritebite Max Protein

    Ritebite

    Available on LBB

    Ritebite's whole plug is to make sure you're taking the right bites, full of protein even when you're snacking. We feel reassured, also because their line of super healthy and tasty snacks also comprises Chips, Protein Bars and Protein Peanut Butters and Protein Breakfast Cookies. Their bars especially are formulated to sustain energy for a good two hours and with ingredients like soy nuggets, nuts, seeds, oats and quinoa that amp up the protein levels.

    HeartyBite

    Hearty Bite

    Available on LBB

    If you workout for the soul and indulge in a cheat meal for the same reason, you will find HeartyBite right up there, hitting you with the 'mmhs and aahs' of the snack world. Their Superfood Energy Bar is a high-rated for being wholesome and for their delectable flavours -- Apricot, Cranberry, Dark Chocolate and a Classic. Reviews say, it's like dessert but wildly sugar free and this is convincing enough for us. Freely eat a few on your way to the gym!

    Wellversed

    Wellversed

They've got Low Carb, Gluten-Free Flours, Dosa Mixes, Quinoa Flours, Keto Metabolism Enhancer for you to whip up a healthy meal with.
