Great Stations for Fueling Up

  • Grill and salad bar—Make your selection at the grill, but instead of getting French fries, load on fruits, veggies, and yogurt.
  • Deli—Sandwiches make great pre- and post- workout snacks. Try a PB&J, turkey, or ham sandwich.
  • Chocolate Milk—Chocolate milk is the best recovery drink. It provides the right amount protein to rebuild muscle and carbohydrates to replenish glycogen stores.
