Smart Food Choices
Making the right food choices before and after exercise can enhance your performance and optimize results.
Before a workout: About 30 minutes to 1 hour before exercising, snack on some dried fruits, such as raisins, dried plums or dried cranberries. These foods deliver concentrated energy that your body can absorb quickly.
After a workout: Within 2 hours after a workout, a smoothie made with lowfat milk, a banana and a handful of berries will help replenish electrolytes, provide muscle-building protein and deliver re-energizing carbohydrates.
Throughout the day: Eating a wide range of healthy food throughout the day gives your body good nutrition and lasting energy. By combining Earthbound Farm organic fruits and vegetables with whole grains, lean sources of protein and lowfat dairy products, you can optimize your nutrient intake during meal and snack times to help you stay active all day long.
