Oranges and onions – Can they make a pre-workout snack?

By Lakshmi:

As I stand in front of my fridge eyeing the fruit options to have as a pre-workout snack, the jalapenos, mint and orange grab my attention.  I quickly pull them out along with a red onion from the pantry, some salt, pepper and olive oil and assemble the salad pictured above!

The instructions are so simple.

  1. Peel the skin off an orange and slice into thin rounds.
  2. Peel the onion and cut about a 1/4 of the onion into thin slices.
  3. Chop half a jalapeno into thin slices.
  4. Chop a tbsp or two of mint leaves finely.
  5. Arrange the oranges, onion and jalapeno on a plate.  Garnish with mint leaves, sprinkle with salt and pepper and douse some extra virgin olive oil on top.
  6. Savor every bite

PS.  If headed to the gym, follow-up with mouth wash!  That red onion can be potent:)
