On-The-Go Foods For Swimmers

12 Apr

GREAT NEWS! PepsiCo will no longer use brominated vegetable oil in its citrus-flavored versions of Gatorade. Studies suggest possible side effects, including neurological disorders and altered thyroid hormones.

On another note, parents often ask me for advice on what to feed their swimmers. Here are five quick and healthy choices for swimmers on the go:

  • Low-fat microwaved popcorn sprinkled with parmesan cheese
  • Trail mix without the candy pieces
  • Peanut butter sandwich on whole grain bread
  • Non-fat or low-fat Greek yogurt topped with fresh fruit
  • Pistachios – lower in fat and calories compared to other nuts
