Top 10 Foods for Endurance Athletes

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!
