I am a runner and I usually run very early in the morning so I do not eat before. Now I feel like at the gym I am doin alot more than running at my own pace and need some fuel. What's good to eat before a work out??

Fruit, lean protein (usually limit fats here as they require your body to work harder on digesting it).

Some meal ideas:

Homemade Hummus and crackers

jam on toast

a couple of apples, bananas or any other fruit that you like.

a protein shake

A glass of low fat vanilla/chocolate soy milk

I go for: handfull of Almonds & dried fruit.

Homemade Hummus sounds like a great option too.

I usually do a smoothie in the morning along with a bowl of oatmeal, but sometimes just the smoothie.

- 1 orange
- 1 banana
- 1 serving hemp protein
- 1 serving rice protein
- Water orange juice or milk substitute to taste

It's pretty tasty and quick and easy especially if you don't feel like eating a meal first thing in the morning.

vega endurance bars, or energy gel if you can afford.
mainly because their main ingredient is dates. you mostly just need a large supply of glucose, which dates contain in large amounts. it wouldn't hurt to have some complex carbs (glucose=simple carb) in addition, because they are for cardiovascular energy so eat some bread or rice or potatoes also.
i think goji berries are a good source of simple carbs too..
everybody so far has the right idea, fruit & toast or whatever. i just wanted to add that dates are the best fruit. bring some to replenish after 60 minutes.

Hi there :)
What would a vegan protein shake consist of? I'm a raw vegan but I am pretty curious :) <3

I usually just take an orange and a banana (peeled of course) and blend them with a vegetable protein powder. I have been using rice, pea and hemp protein.

Some brands also make shake mixes like Vega, Jarrow Formulas and Natural Factors which contain a mix of proteins and are usually flavored and sweetened.
