TOP 5 : Recipes for Active Families

13 September, 2017 , , , ,

In sports nutrition, timing is ultra-important. That’s why we’ve split the recipes in our Sports Menus into four sections:

  • Recipes for 3 to 4 hours before the activity – Full meals
  • Recipes for 1 to 2 hours before the activity – High-Carb Snacks (HCS)
  • Recipes for during the activity – Emergency Carb Snack (ECS)
  • Recipes for after the activity – Recovery Snacks

Your choice of recipe depends on how much time you have before you exercise. Without further ado, here are our top 5 recipes for active families. In the description, you’ll find information on the best moment to eat it.
