Tip of the Month | By Emily Edison, Sports Nutritionist
|Back to school means back to packing lots of food for fuel. Coaches, remind athletes to keep it simple using these easy tips:|
1. Pack the night before. Plan at least two snacks and one meal to bring to school with you. Trail mix, energy bars, peanut butter and jelly, bananas, grapes, pretzels and milk boxes all travel well.
2. Bring a post-workout snack. When practice ends, maximize recovery and keep the “hangries” away by re-fueling within 30 minutes of practice. Try chocolate milk (shelf stable box) and a banana, a post workout energy bar (like Clif Builder), or frozen yogurt with fruit.
3. Make a staple grocery list. Keep the list on your smart phone and send in a text to family members to add what they need.
