The 15 Best Pre Workout Snacks You Can Find In Any Dining Hall

This past year Kent state has made a great improvement with the healthy eating options in the dining halls and markets on campus. There are a lot more vegan, vegetarian, and just all around healthier options. They even cook the food differently.

Kind Bars

I looooovvvveee Kind bars. They are a great source of whole grain, fiber and protein and made with all natural real ingriedants. Not to mention there tons of non-vegan , vegan, kosher and nut-free options. By the way the peanut butter and dark chocolate bars are my favorite.


Nothing better before a workout than fruit.



There are tons of healthier popcorn options before those late night gym options. EX. Boom Chicka-Pop , Skinny Pop.


What more can I say?

Dried fruit

Just as delicious as real fruit, but also maybe a bit sweeter.


Almond butter

Justin’s classic almond butter is great on toast and a healthier take on nutella.


Quick , easy , yummy !

Anything with peanut butter

Whether its peanut butter and apple slices or peanut butter and celery , maybe just crackers and peanut butter. Any of the three have a great source of protein from the peanut butter.



Who doesn’t love a good smoothie ? You can get almost anything you need in a smoothie from vitamins, energy enhancers , meal replacements . You name it you can get it .


Waking up and going to the gym, this not only will stop your hunger but give you the energy to last throughout your workout.
