Example text

Keep baby carrots and cherry tomatoes handy in the front of the refrigerator for easy snacking. Bring a baggie of cut up veggies to practices, games, and tournaments. In an environment with hungry, thirsty young players, you’ll be surprised how popular veggies are, and how quickly they get eaten—particularly if you include a low-fat ranch dressing for a dip! Eat colorful salads filled with tomatoes, green peppers, carrots, spinach, arugula, beets, and dark lettuces. Pale salads with white lettuce, cucumbers, onions, celery, and other pale veggies offer little more than crunch.

Then, if they succumb, they feel guilty. Or more likely, younger players do not plan for after-school eating, and then train on empty. Hunger is neither bad nor wrong. It is a normal physiological function. You can expect to get hungry every four hours. M. If you think of your afternoon fuel as a "second lunch," you’ll end up with wholesome food—a second sandwich, a mug of soup, or peanut butter on crackers and a (decaf) latte. In comparison, "afternoon snack" suggests candy, cookies and sweets—the goodies craved by soccer players who eat too little at breakfast and first lunch.

A Healthier S’more: Yael Averbuch loves dark chocolate. She invented spreading squares of dark chocolate with peanut butter; try a little cinnamon on it too. It’s great on its own, but you can also try it between graham crackers. Frozen Fruit: Blueberries, strawberries, grapes, oranges—all make fun and flavorful snacks when eaten right from the freezer. Frozen yogurt cups: Buy blended flavors, put containers in freezer. A healthier alternative to an ice cream treat, it defrosts on the road and can be eaten thawed.
