Whats wrong with pizza as a pre-workout meal. If you break down the food its: 1. Yeast Extract + Flour for the dough ( carbs) 2. Cheese (Good source of Dairy) 3. Tomato Sauce (Good source of potassium) 4. Ham (Good source of protein, even if its processed) 5. Olives (Many different health benefits) 6. Capsicum (Many different health benefits) 7. Pineapple (Many different health benefits) 8. Onions (Many different health benefits) Ok so we add some oil for cooking, but we do that anyway with pretty much every meal. Fact: Has alot of: KJ - Energy ! Carbs ! Protein ! Which is kind of perfect for a few hours before you workout, since you are gonna burn it off anyway.
