Nutritionist Nicole Kirkpatrick is guest starring on the blog today filling you in on which snacks are best for you when your out on the golf course.
Snacking while golfing is a given. So- which ones are good for ya?
Trail Mix vs Peanuts
Trail Mix hands down. This medley allows your body to get healthy omegas from a variety of different nuts and seeds. These help to deliver lubrication to your joints, increase your focus and concentration, and fight inflammation. The snack also usually comes with dried fruit which will give you a bit of a sugar boost for those last 9 holes. It is a pretty balanced snack and will help to keep you and your body satiated while playing.
Chips vs. Chocolate Bar
Depends. Chips can be a healthy option if they are baked. Tortilla chips with salsa or hummus would be healthy and help to give you other sources of energy and fibre. If craving a chocolate bar, opt for a dark chocolate. These guys deliver tons of antioxidants that help to fight off free radical stress in our body. Always read the ingredients list and make an educated decision.
Drumstick ice cream vs. Magnum ice cream
Both of these taste delicious. This choice you may just have to throw caution to the wind and forget about a healthier option. Make sure you hydrate afterwards a walk a few holes instead of driving:)
