What are your snack ideas before, during & post workouts?

I just did a quick press release on helpful tips on workout snacks before, during and after a workout. What are your suggestions that you give your clients?

Almonds, protein shake or bar!!!
Before: Apple..it's high enough on the GI that it gives you energy to last you throughout your workout so that you don't need a snack during. I stay away from the bars that have added ingredients and loads of carbs.

Post workout: PROTEIN! If you can't have a meal within 30 minutes of workout out, eat some almonds or a hard boiled egg.

Before: I love either a kind bar or lara bar. Kind bars and lara bars are fruit an nut bars without all the extra junk. Plain and simple.
After: protein shake, an apple with some cheese
Another great post workout recovery drink that is simple and inexpensive is chocolate milk(skim or low fat).

A lot depends on how far in advance of exercise that I'm snacking, but I like things like bagels, bananas, raisins. Afterwards, chocolate milk, small pasta salad, peanut butter and jelly sandwich. There is no one-size fits all when it comes to this subject, so it all comes down to what suits someone's taste and system usually.
