Ski Healthier!

With the ski season nearly here, now is a good time to start planning healthy snacks to keep energy levels at their peak on those active snowy days

With the ski season nearly here, now is a good time to start planning healthy snacks to keep energy levels at their peak on those active snowy days. What skiers need most for their forays are energy-boosting carbohydrates. Unfortunately, many winter athletes stock up on unhealthy, sugar-filled snacks that provide only a short-term boost. Complex carbohydrates (those from vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and legumes) are the key. For breakfast, try a muesli mixture made from oats, yogurt, and berries. Sprinkle with ground flax seed to add protein and healthy omega-3 fats. Take some homemade trail mix for a snack-toss together some pieces of organic dried fruit, a handful of almonds, and some sunflower seeds. Make sure to drink plenty of water. Just because it isn't hot outside, doesn't mean you don't need to stay hydrated.
