PB & Banana Toast
This is ideal for a snack before a training session or as a quick recovery option. Carbohydrates from the banana and bread will provide energy for your training, while protein from the peanut butter will promote recovery post-exercise.
The banana is a great source of potassium, which is needed for fluid balance and nerve system functioning. The peanut butter is a source of unsaturated fat that helps boost “good” cholesterol and lower “bad” cholesterol in your blood, lowering your risk of heart disease or stroke. Unsaturated fats also help to absorb fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K.
If banana is not your favourite, try another fruit like apples. You can use crunchy or smooth peanut butter too - whichever you prefer!
