Food for Thought

You train and race hard but do you Fuel your Body Right?

Keep this in mind when fueling your Body!

Before you ride...

Low Fat Dairy like yogurt and cheese is a great source of calcium, vitamin D and helps preserve fat-burning muscle. You will be able to ride faster and longer!

Go Bananas-this healthy carb helps keep the cells hydrated and boosts potassium levels. Win the war against cramping!

Oranges-continue the fight against cramping and dehydration using healthy carbs and vitamin C. Studies suggest oranges boost fat burning potential too!

Oatmeal-Whole grains like oatmeal are packed with healthy fiber and prevent blood sugar spikes! Do your part to prevent the dreaded BONK!

After your Ride...

Go Nuts-Walnuts are loaded in Omega 3's and will curb your post workout eating. 

Eggs-Just like your brain after a workout-SCRAMBLED! Eggs are a quick and easy source of fats and protein to fuel muscle recovery!

Go Fish-Oily fishes like Salmon are loaded in Omega 3's and will help rebuild damaged muscle and speed recovery.
