What you put in your body before and after a workout is just as important as the workout itself. Arielle Fierman, Healthy Living Expert & Recipe Developer and one of our FlyBarre Challenge nutritionists knows a thing or two about the struggles we commonly face when trying to select healthy and replenishing FLY fuel.
Here, she shares three go-to superfoods and recipes that will keep you energized throughout a workout and help your muscles recover once your sweat session is over.
Better Body Benefits: Beans are high in protein, they’re inexpensive and they last for months in your pantry. There are so many different types of beans to choose from. They’re ready to eat and extremely versatile. Go for chickpeas, black beans, red beans or white canneneli beans.
Pre and Post Workout Recipes:
- Veggie White Bean Dip
- Creamy Bean Pasta Sauce
- Simple Green Protein Salad

Better Body Benefits: Chia seeds are tasteless, ready to eat and packed with nutritional benefits. They are high in fiber, omega 3, antioxidants and protein that help you stay fuller longer. Sprinkle on top of salad, soup or blend into a smoothie or juice for an extra boost of energy.
Pre Workout Recipes:
Better Body Benefits: Avocados are replenishing, creamy and packed with satiating good-for-you fats, plus they simply make anything taste better! They are versatile in that you can use them as a spread or in a smoothie to make it super creamy and filling.
