The best way to avoid that fast food lane is to pack your recovery meal/snack
to consume within 30 minutes of your training session or game. This recipe
can be eaten whole, or cut into smaller portions. One wrap contains approximately
500 calories, 26 grams of fat (8 grams of monounsaturated fat, and 4 grams
of polyunsaturated fat), 56 grams of carbohydrates, and 12 grams of protein.
Compare that to a fried chicken sandwich and small fries, which is 820
calories, 36 g of fat (0 grams monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat),
84 grams of carbohydrates, and 33 grams of protein. Enjoy the wrap with
ice cold water and make it past the fast food lines without any temptation.
A small amount of prep work can go a long way in your sport!
