Avo-Health, One Snack at a Time
With the sun, warmth and nice weather, summer sports are finally back! And during all these sporting activities, eating well remains crucial for providing the energy your body needs before, during and after working out. That’s why we’re going to share our easy-to-prepare snack ideas based on avocados, the superfruit full of vitamins and vegetable protein.
Working Out and Eating
1. For your morning workout before work
Nothing is better than starting the day off right! Whether it’s a sunrise run, a yoga session or a swim workout, take the time to give your body the energy to continue your day. There’s nothing better than a tasty avocado and fruit salad with basil and honey or an avocado smoothie to promote muscle recovery. These two recipes stand out for their easy preparation and wholesome, refreshing taste.
2. For your weekend activities
Enjoy the beautiful weather and warmth and go outdoors for some biking or hiking. Don’t forget to bring snacks to give your body the necessary nutrients and allow you to finish your activity with the same intensity that you started with. Bring healthy chocolate chip avocado muffins or even avocado energy balls (French link), recommended by sports nutritionist Evelyne Deblock. They are little delights that are easy to make and bring along!
3. For post-workout recovery
Whether you’re eating after a soccer tournament or a beach volleyball game with friends, try a shrimp, avocado, basil and fresh parsley salad or avocado, mozzarella and tomato skewers with vinaigrette. These two tasty recipes will delight your taste buds while providing your body what it needs to restore nutrients lost during the activity.
Now is the time to get outside and work out! Don’t forget your snack, which will be beneficial for your body. Plan a few minutes to prepare everything and add these healthy habits into your daily routine. Buen entrenamiento!
