Of course everyone knows that the best diets are comprised of "plenty of fruits and vegetables." So lets think about another reason why we should eat these colorful foods...
Take away the nutritional aspect of fruits and veggies for just a second- fruits such as watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, peaches, apples and pears are only a few fruits that are primarily water! Post workout, the consumption of such fruits helps to quickly supplement with the body with water, often able to be better absorbed than straight water! Lettuce, celery, zucchini, spinach and broccoli are also just a few examples of veggies that help to quench your body's thirst too!
Your body not only gets water from the fruits and vegetables, but the gamut of nutrients and electrolytes that come with them is a great bonus. Next time it's hot outside or you finish a good workout, add in some tasty fruits and veggies to change up the post-wod meals! Take care of your body and it will take care of you.
Quick Snack Idea: Celery or Apples with peanut butter!
Quality Nutrition = Quality Training
Eating smart not only makes your feel better and exercise more efficiently but aids in a lifestyle that is less prone to disease and other health complications.
