Top 10 Snacks to Fuel up Before Football Practice

How to fuel up for a football practice so you can have the energy needed to take your game to the next level.

1. Nutrition Bars

1. Nutrition Bars

Sports bars are a quick and easy snack to throw in your bag. However, snacking on the fly can break your budget while store bought bars are off loaded with ingredients you may not need. My favorite include a balance of protein, less than 1/2 the carbohydrate calories coming from added sugars, & a good source of fats like nuts, coconut or nut oil.

Great 24/7, a mix of dry whole grain cereal like Cheerios mixed with dried fruit and nuts or seeds provide a satisfying, flavorful snack.

10. Coconut Water or Sports Drinks

Coconut water or other sports drinks are great options for those who can't stomach solid foods before training. While naturally sweetened coconut water boosts potassium, sports drinks have a kick of sodium, both of which can offset cramping! Learn more at myfootballnutrition.com #myfootballnutrition
