Mix & match to build your own training snack

Posted on November 16, 2020 by

Balanced snacks are important for athletes to fuel their training and provide energy for recovery, and knowing what to eat shouldn’t be a difficult task.

To make deciding what to eat at snack time a little easier and to know if its right to prepare and recovery from training you just need to break it down to the sum of its parts to ensure you have a contribution of a predominately carbohydrate food and a predominately protein food.

This will vary depending on taste and preference, but the formula will be the same. Use the images and portions below to mix and match your carb and protein options and find out if you snack is balanced for training.

Note: If heading into training you might need to double the carb serve of the bigger snack.
