Here are some tips that could impact their energy levels and their impulse buys.

Bananas are one of the best foods you can eat before and after an intense workout.

  • Before exercising, bananas provide necessary amounts of energy and stamina needed to endure strenuous workouts.
  • After exercising, the potassium in bananas helps repair muscle tissue and replenish glycogen levels.


Eat half of a banana on its own before and after, or try one of these healthy carb/protein combos for post workout:

Banana Protein Shake: Blend half a banana with 2 scoops of whey protein and some water

Peanut Butter and Banana with Rice Cakes: Spread 1 tbsp of all natural peanut butter on 2 brown rice cakes. Top with ½ a sliced banana

Yogurt with Bananas and Berries: Mix 8 oz of plain, lowfat yogurt with ½ a chopped banana and a ½ cup of berries

Banana Quesadilla: Spread a whole grain tortilla with 1 tbsp all natural peanut butter. Top with ½ a ripe banana. Fold and cut into wedges

Oatmeal with Bananas: Mix half a cup of cooked steel-cut oats with lowfat milk and half a sliced banana

Be the answer to high energy for your customers. Give them “Energy on the Go” with bananas.
