The nutrition goal for after a game or heavy training is to replenish the depleted carbohydrate stores in your body!
Eat a high-carbohydrate meal within 2 hours of a game.
- Bananas and dried fruits are good immediately following a game.
- Sandwiches and high-carbohydrate drinks like Gatorade are great, too!
The main meal several hours later might consist of more complex carbs like whole grain bread, pasta, potatoes, rice and other simple sugars like sweets.
