Spread half an avocado on a piece of toast for the right mix of fuel for your workout. Try it on a rice cake if whole grains upset your stomach before you work out.

Almond Butter Toast

Another workout-ready mix: toast and almond butter. If you're craving something a little more sweet, then sprinkle with toasted coconut or add sliced banana.

Latte Smoothie
