Teaching Tuesday: Healthy Dinners for the Swimmer

Healthy Dinners

This week we want to continue the discussion of healthy eating that we have been doing this month (but of course excluding Thanksgiving next week) by talking about dinners! Eating a well-balanced dinner is a great way to ensure that swimmers are capping off a day full of training and school successfully. It is important that there is a source of a lean protein, vegetables, carbs, and a starch so swimmers can fully recover while also gaining energy for their next practice. 

Here are some great dinner ideas:

  • Baked chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes, a bread
  • Baked salmon, asparagus, brown rice
  • Spaghetti or a pasta of some kind with lean ground beef, and a vegetable of choice

Additionally here are some more dinner options via SwimSwam which you can check out here.
