I consider myself more of a”trying not to get fat athlete”, but Faster Tomorrow’s Matt Fitzgerald has a good post about the top ten foods they consider the best for endurance athletes, along with a good recipe for a recovery drink, using a couple of my favorite ingredients (coffee beans, peanut butter and bananas. Sadly, no bacon). The list has a mix of proteins, fruits, vegetables, and carb sources, all geared toward helping performance and recovery.
Check out the post here: Top 10 List
And here is the recipe for the recovery drink:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Rush
1 cup low-fat chocolate milk
1 small frozen banana, sliced
1 Tablespoon dark-chocolate covered espresso beans
½ Tablespoon natural peanut butter
1 scoop protein powder (about 21 grams of protein)
Ice (and more low-fat chocolate milk or water for a smoother consistency)
Blend and enjoy!
