What to eat before and after exercise

7 Feb

Training for a half-marathon has got me thinking a lot about nutrition and what foods I should be eating on my long run days. I live a fairly healthy lifestyle; reducing intake fatty/sugary foods, and I currently have a pretty basic pre/post-run meal consisting of a banana or wheat biscuits with sliced banana and honey or a banana smoothie with yogurt and blueberries. But what else can I be doing for my body to ensure I have enough energy for my long runs and efficient recovery after running?

As if reading my mind, an Australian chef and blogger that I follow, Teresa Cutter, posted some insightful information about fuelling our bodies and added a bunch of super easy recipes too!

Enjoy!
