 it’s never healthy to go running without something in your system. Over the night your body digests everything left in your system and leaves it fresh and empty. When running your body needs carbs to burn so it’s better to have a light snack before you hit the roads. So if you are craving a little something then it’s best if you start with avocado toast, which is an ideal pre-workout snack.The avocados provide you with a valuable healthy fat that adds a boost to your run. You can also try a caffeine boost. Black coffee is said to stimulate your adrenaline for a longer run. You can also grab some nuts which will prep you for the run.

Once you have drained everything left in your body it comes down to restoring the goodness back. So it’s highly recommended to replenish it with a well balanced meal with more veggies and complex carbohydrates which will prepare you for the rest of the day. You can also start with salmon and egg for complete rejuvenation. You can also take smoothies containing papaya, coconut milk and pollen grains which will restore your energy level and improve your immunity.
