In this article discusses the importance of consuming healthy food before and after heavy physical activities like running, heavy weight lifting, aerobic exercises, or any sports.
It is essential to understand what your body needs prior to workout and after exercise. Too much of any food or snacks pre- and post-workout is not beneficial for your health.

You can definitely try making your own recipe and see what suits your body. Just make sure you consume the right amount of proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, and fats before and after working out.
