If you have recently signed up for a golf tournament, it is more than likely that you will be traveling on the road and spending the majority of your day on the course. While this prevents you from being able to sit down and prepare a fresh meal, this does not mean that you need to sacrifice an optimal day of nutrition. In order to perform your best throughout the day, you need to make sure that you are giving your body ample energy and from the right sources.
Snack foods are often junky and artificial, but they don’t have to be! Plan out what foods you would like to have with you the night before a tournament and pack a bag– but take into consideration what foods are perishable and what foods are non-perishable. Planning ahead is the key to ensuring individual and team sport athletes will be well nourished on the road. Here are types of snacks that Todd might pack in his bag in anticipation of a tournament.
- Sports drinks
- Bottled water
- Hard-boiled eggs
- Granola, cereal and sports bars
- Fig and fruit bars
- Dried fruit and nuts
- Peanut butter sandwich
- Pretzels, popcorn and trail mix
