BUSY Girl. GOOD Food.

This week I am responsible for making sure 12 athletes have the necessary nutrition and hydration to successfully train in the pool 5 hours a day, in sun and heat unlike they have experienced in almost a year.  Talk about Busy Girl needing to provide Good Food, under pressure.
Lots of fruit. Lots of lean protein. Lots of carbs.  And lots and lots of liquids. I lost count of the number of my shopping trips.  It would have been far easier to trust their meals to campus dining choices, but part of their learning is about nutrition and how it impacts performance, so I have a responsibility to provide them with healthy choices.  Busy Athletes, Good Food.
All in a day’s work.
