As a coach, I take nutrition very seriously. I love making tasty treats for my girls because they’re such awesome athletes, in addition to teaching them a thing or two about the waystheir bodies work and how to make sure they can function at a level equal to the fast-paced competition of volleyball.
Because I have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), I know how difficult and scary it is to be active when your belly is empty. I learned this the hard way at about age 13 while competing in a huge regional volleyball tournament when I was so lethargic that I literally caught the ball in the middle of a game, then saw stars and nearly toppled over. Coach Mike sent me to the trainer, who recommended some complex carbs, stat. After 2 banana nut muffins, lots of juice and some time to digest, I was back to normal.
I never want my girls to feel the fear that comes with your body failing to do what you tell it to, so I load them up with healthy things every chance I get.
As requested by my hard working prodigies, here are the recipes for all of the yummy, healthy snacks that prepped their bodies for incredible things.
Ladies! Let me know if I’ve forgotten one and I will hunt it down to add to the list! 🙂
If you want to try something new, I’ve got hoards more healthy, delicious recipes floating around on my Pinterest.
Stay awesome, ladies! 😘
