Food plays an integral role in sports performance. These tips are specifically designed to improve your marathon, as well as your training and recovery.
Mix It Up at Meals
Make meals a combo of high-quality carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats. For breakfast try vanilla Greek yogurt with sliced bananas and toasted nuts or an egg–white omelet stuffed with veggies and cheese with whole–wheat toast; for lunch enjoy a grilled–chicken wrap with lettuce and tomato rolled in a whole–grain tortilla or lentil–bean chili with a whole–grain roll; for dinner prepare shrimp–and–broccoli stir–fry over brown rice or grilled salmon with sautéed spinach and a baked sweet potato.
