  • Eating good food, in the right amount is necessary to keep the body and mind working. This holds true for all, and especially for the athletes. You can’t dream of winning the game or the championship with an empty stomach.

    Whereas, eating wrong food or overeating just before the match is not encouraged too. So, eat right keeping the food proportions in check.

    Healthy Snack Options for the Sporty Souls

    Everyone does have hunger pangs, and we then tend to eat whatever that comes into our eye-sight. Stop doing that from today onwards.

    There are plenty of food choices for your pre-game snacks that are healthy and easily digestible too. Especially when you are running out of time, a grab and run thing will only come to your mind.

    Some Healthy Snack Hacks for maintaining the athletic performance and fitness:

    1. Fruits

    The simple, no show-off thing on the list. They provide you a bust of vitamins, and ready electrolytes for the game itself. Bananas are rich in potassium, and works good on the cramps. Whereas, apples contain good amount of natural sugar and fibres.

    2. Nutrition Bars

    They are portable, and one among the favorite ‘grab and go’ meals. But be careful with the contents and the level of sugar included. I can’t say that all nutrition bars are healthy, as it depends on the content and the proportion of the added ingredients.

    3. Greek Yogurt

    Of course, as an athlete, you need to eat the foods that help in developing strong muscles and better bones. Yogurts are rich in calcium, and it could help in preventing conditions like osteoporosis.

    4. Pretzel and the Hummus

    Umm, have you tried this combination? For some, it will be the ultimate party food, this is because they taste real good. Even healthier foods can be yummy! They are portable, so you can carry the meal wherever you wish to.

    5. Salmon Sandwich

    Having salmon sandwich in between the breaks or workouts are proven good for the body. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and helps with quick muscle recovery.

    6. Trail Mix (Homemade)

    This is the healthy combination of any kind of nuts, peanuts, cashews, almonds, walnuts, raisins, along with simple carb meals like granola, pretzel – all this mixed together gives a huge dose of essential proteins. Also, it will stay fresh for the whole day!
