Nutrition information

  • When you eat real, whole foods, you feel better, play better and perform better. Here's a handy list that will help you perform on and off the field.
  • Smoothies are a great option for on-the-go nutrition, especially for athletes. But a smoothie is only as healthy as the ingredients you use. By including choices from four general categories, you'll have a healthy meal or snack in no time.

    The four general categories include:

    • Liquid
    • Fruits and vegetables
    • Protein
    • Healthy fats and oils

    Remember not to go overboard on sweet fruit! Generally, a handful is plenty. Download your own DIY Smoothie Maker.

  • You can improve your game by eating whole, real foods. That means food that isn't processed, packaged or handed to you from a drive-through window.

    Your plate should have a healthy balance of:

    • Protein
    • Low-starch vegetables
    • Starchy vegetables and whole grains
    • Fruit
    • Fats and oils

    It's also important to drink water. Athletes should consume half of their body weight in water each day. So, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water each day.
