3. Smoothies

If you want something that you can have on your way to the gym, then a smoothie is your best go-to food. Smoothies have the added benefit of being time-friendly. You have the option of blending your own smoothie, which can be beneficial for your health.

The best way to whip up a smoothie is to use your favorite sliced fruits and add a cup of Greek yogurt and some granola. You will end up with a smoothie which has a thick consistency and is very healthy.

If you are not into doing it yourself, then pick the one which is made of whey and milk-based proteins. The proteins you get from the smoothie is enough for your workout session.
