Almonds

Almonds are a great snack at any time to keep away hunger.

Bananas

Remember, fiber will keep you feeling full. Bananas contain a lot of fiber and are a low glycemic fruit giving you just the right amount of sugar to keep you going during a workout. Potassium found in bananas can also help to keep you hydrated and the magnesium helps prevent cramping of muscles.
