12 Healthy Foods including Snacks for the Athletes

If you are an aspiring athlete, you probably know the need to eat right. Fueling workouts and regimes with the right food makes a big difference. Here are 12 healthy food options for athletes, with snacks included.

  1. Quinoa. Considered to be a complex carb with adequate amount of protein, this is a must-have for every meal.
  2. Oatmeal. This should be ideal inclusion for breakfast, as oatmeal gives you the right amount of carbs without going overboard.
  3. Bananas. No matter whether it’s before the workout or as a snack, bananas pack in enough potassium and carbs needed for energy.
  4. Berries. Talk of snacks, and you have berries, which are high in antioxidants and are great for any athlete.
  5. Sweet potatoes. Rich in carbs, sweet potatoes also contain antioxidant beta-carotene, considered ideal for athletes.
  6. Salmon. Eating lean sources of protein is important for those involved in physical activities, and salmon and tuna just fit the bill.
  7. Seeds and nuts. Snacking on seeds and nuts gives the right amount of healthy fats. Think of chia seeds, flax seeds, almonds and walnuts.
  8. Chicken and turkey. Chicken and turkey breast are great sources of lean regular protein and should be included for lunches.
  9. Soy. If you are not a fan of meat, soy products can work as replacements. Tofu is a great source of vegan protein for athletes.
  10. Eggs. Of course, you cannot have a list of food for athletes without eggs – the powerhouse of protein. If you cannot balance a meal with the right inclusions, you can get protein meals delivered
  11. Cruciferous veggies. Including more cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and bokchoy in every meal is recommended for most athletes.
  12. Olive and coconut oil. As an athlete, one must also consume healthy fats, and nothing beats olive oil and virgin coconut oil in that department.

Are you eating right?
