As you work to be healthy and fit at Thrive Fitness, get nature on your side. There are foods you can eat that will make you feel better, work longer, and get better results. When you eat them, you will notice the difference!

In our last blog, we looked at bananas and tomatoes. Those two fruits offer your body a lot! Today, we are going to look at dried fruit and milk.

Dried Fruit

Dried fruit is the superhero of snack foods. Not only does it offer natural sugars and carbs for an energy boost, they give you potassium, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are a fantastic substitution for energy gels, especially if you are running a race. Make sure you experiment first, though – you don’t want to get stuck mid-race with an upset stomach!


Not only does milk hydrate a person, it delivers a great deal of calcium. And guess what? If you work out, you have an automatic excuse to have chocolate milk. Chocolate milk gives you both carbs for energy and protein to boost your muscles. If you cannot consume dairy, a fruit smoothie can do the same job.
