Turn a banana into a power snack
Bananas are a great, grab-n-go snack that will do your body good any time of day. They’re naturally sweet and packed with potassium, but alone they may not provide the ideal mix of macronutrients to support your body-shaping and weight loss goals.
Here’s how to upgrade your banana to a power snack, and really make it count!
Morning: 1 banana + 1 T all-natural almond butter + 1 glass water
Afternoon: 1 banana + ¼ cup low-fat cottage cheese + 1 glass water
Preworkout: smoothie with 1 banana + 1 cup non-fat milk + ½ cup strawberries + 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
Postworkout: 1 banana + 1 slice whole-grain bread + 1 low-fat string cheese + 1 glass water
Bedtime: 1 banana + ¼ nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios) + 1 glass water
Let your snacks work for you, to improve your health and help you reach your goals!
