Game Day Recipes
Game day is the perfect time to focus on quick-digesting carbohydrates in order to keep your body fueled all day long during those intense competitions. The type of meal you choose to eat should be based on when your competition is. If you have any early-morning game and have only an hour or two to eat before stepping onto the field, opt for choices like smoothies, oatmeal, or French toast that are easy to digest.
Homemade Sports Drink Recipes
If your game day or practice lasts longer than an hour, or if you train in extreme weather conditions, a sports drink may be necessary to adequately recover both your fluids and electrolytes. Choosing a homemade sports drink over a store-bought version means you get exactly what your body needs without the risk of consuming artificial flavors, sweeteners, or dyes. These sports drink recipes take just minutes to make and are extremely light, refreshing, and energizing.
Postgame and Recovery Day Recipes
For recovery meals, the focus is on replenishing muscle glycogen and energy stores with carbohydrates, repairing muscle tissue with protein, getting in a moderate amount of fat to balance out calories, and consuming the proper vitamins, minerals, and fluids to stay hydrated and to strengthen your immune system. Meals during a recovery day or postgame should still be balanced and spread throughout the day.
