8:00 AM Breakfast
Egg, Turkey Sausage & Cheese Breakfast Tortilla
1 piece turkey sausage
1/4 cup low-fat cheese
Veggies (onions, peppers, etc.)
1 cup 2% milk or 100% fruit juice
Opt for a whole grain tortilla. Whole grains contain fiber, which helps you feel fuller longer!
10:30 AM Snack 1
Yogurt & Fruit
1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp honey
1/2 cup of fruit
Aim to get a protein source into both meals & snacks.
12:30 PM Lunch
Grilled Chicken Sandwich
2 slices whole grain bread or bun
5-6 oz chicken patty
1 slice low fat cheese
2 tsp mayo, mustard, ketchup
2 cups veggies or salad
Add 1 tbsp olive oil or a couple slices of avocado to this meal to boost healthy fats. Healthy fats help reduce inflammation.
3:00 PM Snack 2 (Before Practice)
30-60 minutes before practice
2 graham crackers (entire sheet)
1 piece of fruit
1 stick low-fat string cheese
Focus on carbohydrates before practice & keep fat/fiber low. Fat/fiber slow digestion and can cause stomach upset during practice.
5:30 PM Post-workout (After Practice)
PB & Honey + Chocolate Milk
2 slices whole grain bread
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp honey
1 cup (8 oz) chocolate milk
Aim to get post-workout nutrition within 30-45 minutes after training. Don't forget to rehydrate. In-season focus on maintaining glycogen stores (stored carb in the muscles) and hydration status!

1 cup cooked pasta (any type)
4 ounces of lean turkey or ground beef meatballs
1/4 cup red sauce
