Easy and Portable Pre-Game Snacks for Athletes

   Easy and Portable Pre-Game Snacks for Athletes

Any athlete that knows what they are doing knows that they cannot perform their best without eating properly. Before a game, it is equally important to not be performing on an empty stomach or a full stomach. To be the best you can be, you need to have the right fuel in you before you head out. Most athletes will tell you that your best chances of eating before a game is to have a light and healthy snack at least 30 minutes before your game.

There are many options when it comes to pre-game snacks. You want something that will sit well in your stomach and is easily digestible. Easily digestible carbohydrates include things like simple sugars and not fiber or complex carbs. A little healthy fat and protein can work as well. It can be difficult for some athletes to figure out what to pack that is both easy to eat and portable. It also has to be something that you can keep good for at least a few hours in your locker or backpack if there is no refrigerator available. Below are some suggestions for easy and portable pre-game snacks for all types of athletes.

Honey And Peanut Butter Sandwiches

Most people love a good peanut butter sandwich. However, when you have it on white bread and add jelly, it's not exactly the best and most healthy combination. A good twist on this classic that would be the perfect pre-game snack is a peanut butter and honey sandwich on whole grain bread. This sandwich will give you the best combination of ingredients for nutrition. You'll get your protein and healthy fat from the peanut butter and the fiber you need from the bread. The honey is great for adding a little sweetness to the sandwich so that you can enjoy it and feel more satisfied.

Trail Mix

Another great option for a pre-game snack is trail mix that you make yourself. You can add all sorts of healthy fats and proteins by adding in things like cashews, peanuts and almonds. For the simple carbs, you can add in bits of pretzels, dried fruit and granola. The options for trail mix combinations are endless. Athletes can get really creative with trail mix options. If you want something sweet added into the mix, consider things like bits of dark chocolate and raisins.

Finding the right pre-game meals that are quick, easy and portable to make doesn't have to be too difficult. Once you find a few snacks that you like making and enjoy eating, you will have a variety of them to choose from each time. If you are short on time or having difficulty finding options that you like, consider purchasing some muscle meals Sydney from a reputable company like fitnessmusclemeals.com.au.
