What to eat before and after a workout?

I hadn't worked out in a really long time and I started working out last Monday. Ever seen I've been feeling extremely tired and sleepy. I guess I might need to eat something, before and after, that helps me get through the workout and helps me recuperate from it. I tried to look for an article at the site but didn;t find anything right away, can anyone help me here?

One or two boiled eggs before and some roasted chicken breast afterwards. The focus on pre- and post-workout meals is protein. A little fat before a workout is good, but you should avoid fat in the post-workout meal because it slows digestion. If you are lean and need to keep your energy up, baked sweet potato is a good supplement to the chicken breast in a post-workout meal. These are classic pre/post foods, but others can work.
