Sports nutrition isn't just the domain of professional athletes - for a good workout and quick recovery, everyday athletes need the right diet, too.
"A good workout is draining and can lead to fatigue and sore muscles," said Michele Macedonio, R.D., C.S.S.D., L.D. a veteran sports nutritionist and team dietitian for the Cincinnati Reds. "The right combination of foods helps restore energy and nutrients used during exercise, and prepares your body for the next workout."
Dishes such as these from CanolaInfo provide complex carbohydrates, fiber and protein with nutrition-packed ingredients including whole grains, beans, nuts, fruits and plenty of vegetables.
Each delicious recipe contains less than 300 calories per serving and is prepared with heart-smart canola oil to supply healthy unsaturated fats, including monounsaturated and omega-3 fats. For more great recipes, visit www.canolainfo.org.
