Best Supper Food For Track Athletes is Quinoa

  • Training going to be very hard this year, very hard times ten. Training hard is just half the job, we must also eat right and make sure we get enough rest so that the body can repair itself. One superfood you should include in your diet is Quinoa; the only plant source of complete proteins which contains all 9 essential amino acids and is high in LYSINE -- an important part of tissue growth and repair.

    Below are some of the benefits an athlete can get from Quinoa

    • 1) High in magnesium which relaxes blood vessels and prevents constriction and dilation, bringing that much-needed oxygenated blood to all your muscles.
    • 2) Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) - B2 produces energy within the cells and has been shown to improve energy metabolism within the brain and muscle cells.
    • 3) Manganese and copper - These minerals helps protect cells from damage from free radicals.
    • 4)Good for dietary fiber!
    • 5) High in Omega 3 fatty acids.
    • 6) Complex carbs. Athletes are always looking for good complex carbs to refuel the lost glycogen.
    • 7) Low in fat. It contains healthy fats

     How to cook Quinoa? I normally put it on anything I'm eating. When I'm cooking rice, I normally cook two cups rice and two cups Quinoa etc. Check YouTube for some interesting recipes.
