This delicious Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl is a delicious and easy breakfast. It’s also great as a pre-workout snack with phytonutrients, antioxidants and energy-boosting nutrients.
What should you eat right before a workout?
Protein shake and complex carbohydrate whole grain cereal is not the best choice before exercising. Super easy to digest, this fruity Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl is one of the best pre-workout meal options.
For many years, exercisers consume either protein or complex carbohydrates before working out. Such as oatmeal or whole grain bread. Yet both protein and complex carbohydrates digest rather slowly. Therefore they do not efficiently transfer calories into much needed quick energy right before a workout.
The best pre-workout fuel is easy-to-digest simple carbohydrates found in nutrient-dense fruits, sprouted whole grains and sprouted seeds.
How to Make the Perfect Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl
This Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl recipe is made with antioxidant and phytonutrient-rich bananas. Be sure that your bananas are ripening on the counter and are starting to have brown spots. This ensures that the banana adds a little sweetness.
We also use dates and strawberries as well as cooked (and cooled) sprouted whole grain brown rice.
Simply toss all of the ingredients into a high speed blender, pour it into a bowl and top with chia seeds and granola.
Its the perfect pre-workout fuel for just about any exercise regimen lasting 30-minutes to an hour.
Note: Endurance athletes would want to add a bit more protein, soluble fiber and fat prior to a workout.
