10 Sugar Free Bakes for Pre- and Post-Workout Snacks

Wednesday, September 21, 2016


I often get asked by friends and clients what they can snack on before or after their workouts. I mainly suggest pairing protein rich foods with their snacks - for example a handful of nuts and a piece of fruit, apple slices spread with nut butter, a slice of cheese with crudités, protein rich yoghurt or even a protein smoothie. 

But what about when you are craving a sweet treat, that 3pm slice of cake or early morning breakfast bar on your way out the door to the gym? 

I've rounded up my favourite sugar-free bakes for perfect pre- and post- workout snacks. Get your bake on and that's your snack prep done to last the whole week ... or will they!?
